It can be difficult for companies to fully understand the complex environmental issues that can create risk during a real estate transaction, or in the course of conducting day-to-day business. This problem is often made even worse when environmental consultants speak in technical jargon that creates additional confusion.
At PPM, we are dedicated to making it easier for you to resolve your environmental liabilities by presenting our findings in clear, concise, and easy-to-understand language that allows you to make informed decisions in a timely manner. Our team is primarily made up of engineers, geologists and other environmental scientists, so we understand how to quickly move past potential environmental hurdles and bring closure to your sites.

Due Diligence for Property Transfers
Any time you are conducting a real estate transaction, you want to be sure that you have mitigated environmental risks to the greatest possible extent, so you can avoid late transaction surprises and quickly move to the closing.
PPM offers a broad range of environmental assessment and due diligence consulting services related to the transfer of real estate. These services range from Phase I Environmental Site Assessments to full risk mitigation and corrective action on mergers and acquisitions. We offer our services to financial lending institutions, insurance companies, Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and other investment companies, as well as individual purchasers or sellers of industrial, commercial or residential property.
Our environmental team will perform a thorough investigation of all relevant concerns at your site, while working to keep the costs of site assessments as low as possible by taking care to remain within the scope of the project and collecting the necessary information with the minimum number of mobilizations. We also provide clear, direct communication regarding any environmental concerns that may significantly impact closing, or affect the scope of work.
Our reports are written with the goal of being as accessible and transparent as possible, so our clients always understand the environmental issues they are dealing with and have the information they need to make smart decisions about pending property transfers or other business proceedings.
Asbestos, Lead and Mold Inspections
The presence of asbestos or lead-based paint is often an issue during a real estate transaction, demolition or remodeling involving an older property. Mold is a particular concern in the Southeast because the climate is warm and humid for such a large part of the year.
PPM performs compliance audits and risk assessments for a wide range of commercial businesses. We can assist you with:
- Visual Inspections and Assessments
- Air sampling and development of work plans
- Selection and oversight of mitigation and abatement contractors
- Post-remediation testing
If you suspect that your property or building may have issues with asbestos, lead, or mold, give PPM Consultants a call. We’ll help get to the bottom of the issue and provide guidance on how to fix it.
