What our Clients have to say about us

Client: McDonald’s USA, Kirkland, Washington

Projects: Multiple Pre-Construction Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments across Oregon and Washington


“In order to provide our customers with the best product at the lowest price, McDonald’s requires the same of our environmental contractors. Michael O’Connor and AAI fill that requirement perfectly. I can pick up the phone and know I’ll have a proposal in my hand in an hour or two, with a firm due date and a very reasonable price. AAI also provides excellent follow-up services, when needed, after the report has been issued.”

Project: Pre-sale Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment on Assisted Living Facility


“We recently hired AAI to evaluate one of our properties prior to putting it on the market. When the inspection revealed that a neighboring industrial facility was using a corner of our property as a burn pit and waste dump, we were afraid we’d spend months in court or thousands on a cleanup. Then Mr. O’Connor suggested something none of us thought of — convincing the owner of the adjoining industrial site to agree to a lot line adjustment to transfer ownership of the contaminated land to the industrial site. The owner of the industrial site site now owns the contamination he caused, and we’re now able to market the property free of any environmental encumbrances. AAI also streamlined the whole process by hiring the surveyor, helping with negotiations, and quickly updating the Phase I ESA to reflect the lot line adjustment. We really appreciate AAI’s personal service, innovative approach, and genuine concern for our situation.”

Client: Windermere North Rim Commercial Real Estate, Portland, Oregon

Projects: Multiple Pre-Acquisition Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments, Portland, Oregon


“As a commercial property developer, I need to know every potential environmental problem at a property before I buy it. With over 900 environmental assessments in the Portland area under his belt, Mike really knows the environmental characteristics of the neighborhoods we work in. Plus he is affordable, fast, responsive, and smart. Overall, he’s a great guy to work with.”

Client: Wallis Engineering, Vancouver, Washington

Projects: Multiple Right-of-Way Pre-Construction Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments, Washougal, Washington


 “Wallis Engineering provides civil engineering services for road and infrastructure improvement projects that are funded by a variety of federal, state and local government sources. Environmental documentation requirements for these projects often include a Phase 1 Hazardous Waste Due-Diligence report. We have successfully teamed with AAI on numerous projects to provide the pre-construction Phase 1 environmental studies. AAI has done a great job, providing quality reports on time and on budget. But just as importantly, AAI works with our stakeholders throughout the process to address their comments and concerns as they arise, and modify reports as necessary and in a timely manner.”
