“In most cases, environmental due diligence services, such as Phase I ESAs, are required three to four weeks prior to closing of commercial real estate transactions,” said Steve Kitzke, principal and national client manager at Partner. “As such, Phase I ESAs serve as a barometer of commercial real estate and construction trends in the environmental due diligence industry.”

According to the EDR ScoreKeeper report, Phase I ESA transactions in the Midwest increased 27 percent when compared with the third-quarter 2012 data. Partner performed 76 Phase I ESA transactions in Ohio during the third-quarter of 2013.

“The Midwest is showing signs of a slow but steady recovery as evidenced by the third-quarter data,” added Kitzke. “We’ve been able to grow our presence and expand our services along with the market.”

With 25 offices nationwide, the firm was also the first-ranked provider of Phase I ESAs performed statewide in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Jersey and Texas.
