Environmental due diligence provides assessment of environmental liability risk to professionals working in property and corporate transactions. This risk analysis informs the seller or buyer on any potential environmental liabilities and their effect on the value of the asset in the market.

Key areas covered by GeoSmart include:

  1. Contaminated land, site history and current operations, covered within a Phase 1 Environmental Assessment;
  2. Flood Risks from all sources of flooding related to how the property has been constructed with any flood mitigation considered;
  3. The presence of and functioning of drainage including sustainable drainage systems which, if a site is acquired with the intention to undertake development, a planning application is likely to necessitate the requirement of.

GeoSmart are tech partners of the Royal Chartered Institution of Surveyors (RICS) who provide guidance on environmental risks to surveyors. When owning, occupying, purchasing, selling, letting, or carrying out works on a property, it is increasingly important to consider environmental risks.

As defined by RICS, GeoSmart are an Environmental Specialist and can advise on environmental risks that could affect your Site.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our dedicated team of experts will undertake an initial review of your Site to confirm environmental constraints, including contaminated land, flood risk and drainage, using geological mapping and other environmental datasets.

Our findings will be presented in a brief report, and you will also have the option to discuss the results and any further recommendations with a consultant.

Alternatively, we can jump straight to a full, detailed report.

GeoSmart can provide more detailed reports on several environmental risk factors through our Environmental Reports.

We can also recommend suppliers and associate organisations for further work that we cannot undertake such as on-site Investigation.

You can give us a call, send us an email or fill in your details on our Contact Us page.

This does not commit you to making any payment at this stage. Once we have received your enquiry, we will get back to you by phone to check your details, discuss your Site, respond to any queries you may have, confirm the price of the service(s) you are interested in, and to confirm whether you wish to proceed.

If you wish to proceed, we can then send you a formal confirmation document and take payment. Once your payment is processed and required information received, we can start work straight away.

As much information as possible on your site! As a minimum though we require:

  • Site address.
  • Site location plan with a red line boundary.
  • Which (if any) environmental factor you are most concerned about e.g. flood risk.
  • Why you need our services e.g. purchasing a Site.
  • Your details (name, email address, phone number).
