Welcome to my blog!
My name is David McAlister, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Here I will post my thoughts and impressions on the commercial and industrial real eastate market, specifically propety where the soil and/or groundwater has been adversely impacted in some way and requires environmental scrutiny. To put it briefly, dirty property.
I have been working in the environmental consulting field in the Los Angeles area for a little over 6 years now, first at Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and now at GeoTrans, a division of TetraTech.
My professional experience has been predominantly in the support of industrial and commercial real estae transactions, specifically Phase I & Phase II investigations, agency interaction, and in-depth site investigation / remediation work. I have been working with real estate agents, loan agents, loan processors, investors, and developers. My professional experience has also included litigation support and regulatory compliance as well site investigation and remediation for a number of Fortune 100 companies over the years at various sites in the greater Los Angeles area. This has provided me with exposure to vast array of environemtnal challenges that are facing property managers and risk management professionals today.
I hope you find my blog informative and somewhat entertaining. I will attempt to keep things light because I know that some of the technical details I work with can be extremely dry. Feel free to post your comments and / or questions any time, I would love the feedback!
