Environmental Engineering & Geology 

Most real estate transactions and development projects require site assessments as part of their due diligence process, and the complexity of the governing federal, state, and local regulations can be daunting. Financial institutions and institutional risk managers require environmental assessments before making financial or insurance commitments in order to protect against potential future litigation and remediation costs associated with environmental issues. Additionally, purchasers are required by statute to perform an “all appropriate inquiry” during the due diligence process if they seek to claim the “innocent landowner” defense against Superfund liabilities. Citadel’s comprehensive Environmental Engineering & Geology services will provide owners with the basis for making well-informed decisions regarding property purchase, development, remediation, or legal action. Citadel conducts property assessments that enable owners, corporate managers, borrowers, investors, insurers, and lenders to fulfill the due diligence requirements for all types of properties before purchase, sale, development, insuring, refinancing, or foreclosure, and prior to disposition or decommissioning.
