Aircraft Maintenance Facility, Subic Bay, Philippines
SLP Environmental was appointed by a multinational conglomerate to conduct a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) on an occupied light industrial property situated in Subic Bay, Zambales, Philippines. The client was considering divesting the business and as part of their due diligence assessment instructed a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment to assess whether there are any Recognised Environmental Conditions (RECs) associated with the subject property that could have a material impact on the transaction.
Operations on the Subject Property comprised of the repair and overhaul of aircraft brakes and wheels as well as general administrative and warehousing functions.
The study was conducted and reported in accordance with the practice presented in ASTM E1527-13 and the scope of works comprised of a site and environs reconnaissance, interviews with key informants and desk study to assess the landuse history of the area and the physical and natural environmental setting.
The client also requested that certain Non ASTM scope aspects be included in the study and this consisted of a Limited Environmental Compliance Review (LECR) whereby SLP assessors checked that permits and licenses related to HazMat storage, waste management, wastewater discharges and air emissions were in place and valid.
These studies culminated in the determination of the environmental sensitivity of the project site area, the development of a preliminary conceptual site model (CSM) for the subject property and a determination as to whether any Recognised Environmental Conditions and/or De Minimis conditions were associated with the subject property.
SLP Environmental completed this project as part of an ASEAN wide portfolio of Phase 1 ESA assessments which included sites in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
