Description

EnviroSure was retained by Project H.O.M.E. to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of adjoining parcels in Philadelphia. The Site consisted of a church, built in the mid-1800s, and a former gasoline service station. Project H.O.M.E. planned to redevelop the Site through adaptive reuse of the church and demolition of the auto repair shop.

The Phase I ESA was conducted in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice E 1527 for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process.

Recognized environmental conditions were identified on the auto repair shop property including two in-ground hydraulic lifts and two below ground concrete pits. To further evaluate the recognized environmental conditions, EnviroSure conducted a Phase II ESA that involved advancement of three soil borings inside the auto repair shop using a portable Geoprobe unit. The laboratory results for the soil samples associated with areas of concern were non-detect or below PADEP’s residential and non-residential medium concentration compounds.

EnviroSure recommended removal and offsite disposal of the in-ground lifts and associated components in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations. EnviroSure also recommended the cleaning and removal of oily residue from the two below ground concrete pits.

EnviroSure presented the client with other considerations to ensure that environmental issues were properly handled during redevelopment of the Site.
