Yesterday, the Los Angeles Business Journal hosted the 11th annual Best Places to Work in Los Angeles luncheon where tk1sc’s Los Angeles office was honored with an award. The ceremony awards top local employers that participated in a detailed survey on subjects such as leadership, corporate culture, communications, and much more.
“This award speaks to the commitment we’ve made to give our employees a place to think, create, learn, and innovate,” says principal and tk1sc’s Los Angeles office leader Louise Belair, PE. This award comes weeks after the staff moved into a larger office. “We work hard for our clients, like each other, and have a lot of fun,” says Belair.
The tk1sc Los Angeles office has 28 employees providing services in mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering; technology and audio-visual design; energy and sustainability; code, life safety and fire consulting; commissioning and retro-commissioning; and, architectural lighting design.
“After only 18 months with an office in Los Angeles, we’re thrilled with the quality of people who we’re proud to have as employees. Their addition fits perfectly with the tk1sc’s culture, values, and mission to build value through innovation,” comments tk1sc CEO Roger Carter, PE.
The Los Angeles office’s projects include work with Dignity Health’s California Hospital, City of Hope, UCLA, USC, Kaiser Permanente, Aerospace, LAX, and John Hancock Real Estate, to name a few.
tk1sc is an engineering consulting firm. Working with our industry partners, we design mechanical, electrical, plumbing, technology, low voltage, and security systems. As stewards of the environment, we work diligently to find ways that conserve and/or produce energy and water, always striving for the perfect shade of green. We find ways to blend life safety and fire codes into the architecture without compromising design. Our architectural lighting designers light buildings to create the experience and mood of a space.
Whether a building is in design, construction, or is operational, we’ll commission it to optimize its performance and make sure everything is working as planned, if not better. And, if a building needs to operate better, we can retro-commission it to find ways to enhance its performance with an eye towards reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint.
