Due Diligence

We deliver a full range of due diligence services to identify and quantify environmental liabilities and impaired assets.

When purchasing a property, upgrading an existing facility, or selling an asset, assessing the potential risks and environmental issues is critical. ATC works directly with lenders, brokers, owners, and asset managers to provide practical, objective evaluations and options — remaining sensitive to each client’s specific needs and objectives.

Whether the project involves a securitization, new loan, refinance, or foreclosure, we can provide guidance every step of the way. From ASTM to Voluntary Action Programs, we have a deep understanding of and experience with all the applicable regulations within the real estate sector.

What’s more, our national reach and resources mean we can quickly assess portfolios consisting of hundreds of properties and evaluate properties with complex operations or unique issues. Our NEPA-trained specialists are located in major cities throughout the U.S. to support new build and collocation build requirements. This expertise helps clients develop mitigation strategies and minimize delays associated with the Endangered Species Act, state historic preservation offices, or Tribal concerns.

We conduct projects under client-specific scopes that may reference ASTM standards, the All Appropriate Inquiries (AAI) rule, or the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
