What is a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment?

Phase I Environmental Assessments are a first look at a particular piece of property to find evidence of potential sources of environmental concern. This is a qualitative investigation that consists of 1) a review of public records for past property uses and discharge reporting; 2) a physical site inspection to look for apparent environmental concerns; 3) development of a site and vicinity layout sketch; and, 4) professional recommendations for further investigations, if necessary.

Why is Florida Geotechnical Engineering so successful with managing their environmental service projects?

At Florida Geotechnical Engineering, project management begins by carefully reviewing the scope-of-services requested by the client to make sure the project results will produce the desired outcome. A thorough cost evaluation is then performed to ensure costs are minimized prior to providing the client with a formal proposal. While the project work is performed, the Project Manager provides project updates to the client on a regular basis and in a format suitable for the client’s use. We strongly believe consistent client communication is key to a successful project; we therefore emphasize regular client status reviews in our project planning.

All Florida Geotechnical Engineering projects are also regularly reviewed (minimum monthly) by the Project Manager and our top technical staff members which hold Professional Geology and Professional Engineering certifications. These senior individuals have ~ 25 years experience in their respective disciplines and bring this experience to bear in each project’s management to ensure each client receives the highest level of attention and quality of service. We believe it is important to also have the “gray beard” oversight; this project management approach also ensures that our clients have at least two professionals they can contact who are familiar with each project in case an emergency arises or information is needed. This management method promotes project efficiency, first-time success and client satisfaction and confidence.
