At Nelson Enviro, people know us for our Phase I Environmental Site Assessments. There are countless scenarios in which a person might want to know as much as possible about his or her property and when that’s the case, a Phase I ESA can really help to get to the bottom of things. But what about when you just need a quick overview that’s not quite as in-depth?

If that’s the case, a Desktop Review is probably going to be the perfect option to choose. In today’s blog, we’ll take a look at what you can expect to get out of a Desktop Review to help you decide if it’s the right option for you. Keep reading to learn more!

Why Is It Called a Desktop Review?

Well, to put it simply, we call it a Desktop Review because there is no on-site investigation. In other words, the team at Nelson Enviro will do the majority of the work right from our computers. That doesn’t mean that we won’t be getting you the information you need, however. On the contrary! A Desktop Review takes a look at all of the information we can find from the resources we have available to us.

We’ll go through various databases in order to assess the facts about a given piece of land and help you to make the right decision for your specific situation. If our research uncovers something out of the ordinary, we can also do a full Phase I Environmental Site Assessment where we’ll go to the location in question and do more digging to ensure that you have the full picture. In many instances, a Desktop Review provides you with plenty of information to help you make your decision.

Desktop Review vs. Phase I ESA

The best way to sum things up is that a Desktop Review is more limited in its scope whereas a Phase I ESA can provide an in-depth analysis and provide you with all the facts. Different situations call for different levels of research to be done, but what we want you to know is that at Nelson Enviro, we can handle any situation that comes our way.

With plenty of experience under our belts and a dedication to our customers that runs in the family, you can always rely on our team to provide you with the insight you need to make the right choice for your particular situation. It’s as simple as that.

Have a Question?

At the end of the day, we get our hands dirty so you don’t have to. If there is a chance that the land you are considering purchasing is hiding something, we’d love to help you uncover the truth whether it’s in the form of a Desktop Review or an ESA.

Regardless of the situation, we’ll take great care of you at every step of the way. Have a question? Ready to get the process started? Don’t hesitate to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you!
