For this first-generation tenant improvement project,tk1sc provided engineering design for mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and lighting systems renovations for the multi-national cloud technology innovator AbacusNext in San Diego. Located in the Irvine Company’s Eastgate Summit building, this 3-story 63,129 square-foot facility offers unobstructed views to the Pacific Ocean, motivating murals throughout, several conference rooms, a game room, and provides a full gymnasium for the team to use. This building achieved LEED certification.

Mechanical Engineering Solution: Faced with the unique challenges of large spaces with open-to-structure design, the mechanical team required the coordination of duct routing with structural trusses, lighting, and other utilities to provide pleasing aesthetics and functional ventilation and air conditioning. Previously the mechanical systems had only served shell space and were not exposed to a true building heating or cooling load. tk1sc collaborated with the mechanical and controls contractors to test, balance, and start the central HVAC systems to serve an occupied building for the first time.

Electrical Engineering Solution: Frank and his MEP team provided an all-new electrical distribution service throughout the building. Systems include a centralized UPS, all-new mechanical low-pressure distribution, and plumbing piping distribution for the new first-floor utilities. The building required detailed coordination to develop solutions for the café, fitness center, and a 3,500square foot training center with integrated AV systems. The electrical team involvement began at space planning starting from a warm shell and concluded at occupancy.

Plumbing Engineering Solution: The large open-to-structure design of the building required the plumbing team to advance solutions for systems integration with structural trusses, lighting, and other utilities to provide attractive functionality. The design team selected ultra-low flow water sense plumbing fixtures and energy-saving hot water generators to provide hot water demand while eliminating energy waste. The sanitary waste and vent system constructed used certified cast iron pipe manufactured from 98% recycled materials. All plumbing fixture selections were based on classic fixture lines to offer a clean and pleasing appeal for the occupants.
