Historic Hotel Property in Philadelphia

This site is developed with a historic multi-story hotel structure and is located in an area of Philadelphia undergoing rapid revitalization. At the time of REPSG’s Phase I ESA the property was unoccupied. REPSG completed a Phase I Site Assessment that included comprehensive recommendations and cost estimates for environmental abatement and remediation during redevelopment. REPSG’s report included recommendations regarding the presence of asbestos, lead-based paint, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-containing transformers, aboveground and underground storage tanks, previously documented existing soil contamination at an adjoining site, and other recognized environmental conditions. REPSG also completed a comprehensive sampling survey for the presence of asbestos containing materials, with approximately 300 samples of suspected asbestos-containing materials collected and submitted for analysis

Former Electrical Substation on North Broad Street

This site is developed with a former electrical substation; at the time of REPSG’s Phase I ESA the property was had been cleared of electrical equipment and was being used for storage and parking. REPSG completed a Phase I Site Assessment that disclosed recognized environmental conditions with significant potentials to affect proposed development at the site, including the previously undocumented prior use of a portion of the site as a gasoline station and the potential presence of polychlorinated biphenyl-impacted soils. REPSG’s report included recommendations for additional investigation, which were implemented by REPSG following the completion of the Phase I ESA.

Site Owned by the City of Philadelphia

This site was the former location of residences and a commercial warehouse property. REPSG completed a Phase I ESA at this site in 2005 for a prospective purchaser. The Phase I ESA was conducted in accordance with ASTM Standard Practice E 1527-05, and identified several recognized environmental conditions at the subject property, including the potential presence of historic fill materials at the site and the presence of multiple area sites on environmental databases.

Light Industrial Site in the City of Philadelphia

This site was developed as a light industrial facility (metal recycling and casting) at the time of REPSG’s Phase I ESA, which was completed site in 2005 for a prospective purchaser. The Phase I ESA was conducted in accordance with ASTM Standard Practice E 1527-05, and identified several recognized environmental conditions at the subject property, including the site’s history as a light industrial facility, the presence of asbestos-containing materials, the presence of an aboveground storage tank (AST) containing heating oil, the presence of a kiln and other industrial equipment at the site, and the presence of multiple area sites on environmental databases. REPSG recommended that a Phase II ESA, to include subsurface sampling and analysis, be conducted at the subject property, and also that a comprehensive survey for the presence of asbestos-containing materials be completed.

Multi-Parcel Residential Site in the City of Philadelphia

This site is a development project intended to redevelop and revitalize and area of South Philadelphia. REPSG completed a Phase I Site Assessment of over fifty individual parcels slated for redevelopment. The Phase I ESA incorporated the findings of prior assessments and subsurface investigations at some of these parcels. REPSG’s report included recommendations regarding the presence of asbestos, lead-based paint, lead in soil, aboveground and underground storage tanks, and other recognized environmental conditions at the subject sites. Following the completion of the Phase I ESA, REPSG provided Phase II ESA services, including sampling surveys for the issues identified at the sites
