Mitigating risks: key to project success

An active economy, regentrification of building uses and business growth expansion all point to an active property acquisition market. Many real estate transactions can be both complex and risky, but at True North we understand that the mitigation of risks is key in making acquisitions and projects successful. Whether it is internal risk aversion or conservative tolerances by outside entities (e.g., boards, lenders, etc.), managing as many of those risks as possible will allow for a successful transaction to occur. That’s why we take pride in offering a full range of environmental due diligence services designed to manage and quantify those risks for you.

We offer typical ASTM/AAI-compliant Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) and follow-up evaluations that are commonly accepted by lenders, attorneys and governmental agencies. Our managing staff has 25+ years of experience and can put their expertise to good use on your projects, providing quantified risks that are smart, simple and easy to understand.
