Consulting Services Experience

Department of Energy, California
HYT Corporation is currently under a multi-year agreement to provide fire protection engineering, design, and consulting services for a major US Department of Energy facility. In addition to providing general consulting services, we have completed the design and construction period services for the retrofit installation of seven high sensitivity air sampling smoke detection systems for protection of the facilityís laser research building. The systems were integrated into existing building fire alarm equipment for signal transmission to a remote monitoring location. HYT Corporation is also in the 2nd year of a 5-year site-wide fire alarm system replacement project. HYT is developing the detailed (point-to-point and control unit wiring diagrams) for the entire project.
East Bay Municipal Utilities District, California
HYT Corporation provides fire protection engineering and consulting services to the East Bay Municipal Utilities District (EBMUD) on an annual basis, and has been doing so for numerous years. These services include loss control surveys of nearly all of their facilities consisting of dams and power plants, water treatment facilities, wastewater treatment plants, administration facilities, parks, and maintenance/service facilities.
Transamerica, San Francisco California
HYT Corporation provided fire protection engineering and consulting services to Transamerica Corporation on an annual basis for many years, including loss control surveys of Transamerica owned/occupied facilities in the US and Canada. Among other facilities, we annually surveyed senior living facilities located in California and Nevada, the Transamerica Center in Los Angeles, the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, and facilities in several other states.

Chemical Plant, Alaska
Our staff traveled to Alaska to develop and deliver an in-depth fire protection engineering study of a 7,000 ton/day ammonia and urea plant. The operations assessed included the methane distribution system and facilities, processing facilities, and wharf operations. The report identified and evaluated existing protection systems and effects of fire and explosion, including the development of postulated peak pressure zones from explosions. Recommendations were provided as appropriate.
