Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments

For more than 16 years, Johnson Engineering has been providing prospective landowners with Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments as part of their due diligence process. The Phase 1 Site Assessment provides information to the landowner and other interested parties about contamination, or lack thereof on or adjacent to the prospective parcel. In order to qualify for a loan, banks often require that the property or surrounding areas must show no evidence of hazardous substances or petroleum products which could affect the property’s environmental integrity.

Andy Tilton, P.E., our senior environmental professional, has conducted numerous environmental site assessments for a wide range of private sector clients as well as governmental agencies throughout Southwest Florida. Tim Denison, our lead environmental scientist, recently completed training in American Standard Testing and Methods (ASTM) 1527 for Environmental Site Assessments. Under Andy’s charge, Tim will be providing Phase 1 and Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessments for our clients when needed.

Farewell to Good Friends

This winter marked an end of an era as two veteran Johnson Engineering employees said their good-byes and ventured into retirement. Don Garretson, a senior technician in the transportation market group, retired after 38 years of managing plan production for numerous roadways throughout Southwest Florida. Don joined Johnson Engineering in 1973 and was the project manager for many well known roadways, including Del Prado Boulevard, Veterans Parkway, Livingston Road, Metro Parkway and was chief designer for S.R. 776 in Charlotte County.

Gary Bull, Johnson Engineering’s chief financial officer, announced his retirement after 26 years of service. Gary served on the company’s Board of Directors and was director of the administrative market group. Gary handled the finances, client relations and contract management, as well as growth and risk management for the company.

We thank Gary and Don for their valued years of service to Johnson Engineering and wish them well in their retirements. Should you have any questions, please contact Kevin Winter at 239.461.2473 or kwinter@johnsoneng.com.
