Environmental Site Assessment, Desktop Review, and Related Scopes

An Environmental Desktop Report, sometimes called a Desktop Review, is similar in scope to a Phase I ESA but it does not include a visit to the subject property and is instead done entirely through digital review, earning the name “desktop” report. Although a site visit is not conducted, experienced Environmental Professionals still conduct thorough reviews of items such as database records from government and regulatory agencies, and historical records from third party data providers. They also complete environmental questionnaires with relevant stakeholders to build a more complete picture of the property’s history and usage.

The exact scope of a Desktop Review is often customized to the client’s needs, but in general contains one or more of the following components:

  • Environmental Records and Database Review
  • Historical Records and Database Review
  • Records Search with Risk Assessment
  • Custom items of interest to the client
  • Phase I ESA
