Through our award-winning work in a variety of disciplines, Hughes staff has earned a reputation among DoD and DOE facilities across the country for excellence. We have the depth of engineering and program management experience needed to meet the specialized requirements of DoD facilities - from developing and implementing fire protection programs, to supporting operational readiness reviews to providing expert decontamination, decommissioning, and demolition (DD&D) support, to performing needs assessments and hazard analyses. We also provide state-of-the-art computer modeling to study the consequence of fire and explosion scenarios.
We have received numerous letters of appreciation and recognition and many of the industry’s most prestigious awards, including The Walter W. Maybee Award from the DOE Fire and Safety Committee in recognition of lifetime achievement in fire safety. Many Hughes engineers hold Q-level security clearance.
Depth of experience.
We have provided services to nearly every major DOE site in the country. For example, Hughes conducted Fire Hazard Analyses (FHA) at: Hanford Site, Idaho National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratories, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, Pantex Plant, Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, and the Brookhaven National Laboratory. We have also conducted baseline needs assessments at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.
Our in-depth expertise, comprehensive services, and proven commitment to excellence have made us the premiere fire engineering firm in the industry for DoD and DOE facilities.
