How it Works:

While facility upgrades share some common elements, each project must be custom-designed to meet the unique circumstances of clients. ISAT offers an array of services that focus on generating accurate field surveys of existing suspended piping, medical gas, suspended and floor mounted equipment, suspended ceiling bracing, fire sprinkler lines, electrical utilities and HVAC duct conditions. ISAT creates as-built drawings of existing utilities, engineers and coordinates a seismic bracing solution to meet the requirements for non-structural utilities.

For projects pertaining to OSHPD, ISAT utilizes OPA-0485 as well as OSHPD approved hardware that that is shipped to the project areas in location-specific kits. These kits contain all the components to properly brace utilities with the intent of streamlining the review process and minimize OSHPD back-check comments. ISAT keeps the construction effort on-task and on schedule by interfacing with the project IOR and OSHPD field staff. ISAT plays a vital role in augmenting the success of any upgrade project.
