Phase 1 Environmental Assessments

Whether you are seeking to discharge planning conditions or buying new property, a Phase 1 study (also known as a desktop or preliminary assessment) is a critical first step in ensuring land contamination matters are understood.

We are leading experts in Phase 1 assessment and pride ourselves in getting things done quickly and right first time. Our phase 1 reports are designed to meet the needs of planning conditions and can provide an assessment of risks prior to property and land purchase.


Our experts are on hand to discuss the findings of our reports, “what it all means” and what you need to do next. For planning matters, we have substantial experience in liaising with regulators on behalf of our clients to speed up the approval process.
