Case Study

The Pioneer Companies Acquires Large Regional Malls


The Pioneer Companies pioneer2


EMG was engaged by The Pioneer Companies to perform comprehensive engineering and environmental due diligence services on two, very large properties in California and Utah. The scope of our work included: Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Property Condition Assessments, Seismic Risk Analyses, Alta Surveys, Roofing Surveys and Zoning Reports. EMG also provided a structural engineering assessment later in the process. The client required that all work be completed within a quick, 3.5 week time frame.


EMG provided our client with detailed information regarding the condition of these large properties, giving it the real estate intelligence needed to make an informed transaction decision within 17 days of signing the contract. As part of EMG’s investigations, we identified a structural concern during an initial site visit and were able to discuss the next steps quickly with our client. EMG deployed a highly experience structural engineer to the site for a timely resolution and comprehensive understanding of the issue.
