K-12

tk1sc was brought on to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services on this renovation and expansion for St. Mary’s School, Orange County’s only independent preschool through grade 8international baccalaureate (IB) world school. The project added 50,000 square feet of classrooms, three science labs, an art wing, and a 4,000 square-foot teaching and foodservice kitchen.

 

Mechanical Solutions: The mechanical design included new ductwork from existing HVAC units to serve the remodeled classroom areas and the kitchen—the cafeteria space received a new dedicated HVAC unit. The design provided new gas-fired unit heaters for the outdoor seating area. The mechanical scope was designed to meet the new remodel requirements while also coordinating around existing conditions.

Electrical Solutions: The electrical design's primary focus was to provide an overall quality and maintainability commensurate with a long-term investment. The plan included proven power and lighting equipment for the interior and exterior of existing classroom and kitchen/cafeteria buildings. We designed the system using the most stringent and latest adopted editions of codes, standards and guidelines published. The project team developed the classrooms and adjoining spaces to have many collaboration spaces, and even the hallways were incorporated in the design to be used as supplemental educational areas. This, alongside the architect's playful design intent, created some challenges for achieving proper lighting and maintaining a clean and modern design aesthetic. Tk1sc, with the architectural team, selected some unique, high-quality lighting fixtures that fit form and function to highlight the architectural influences and maintain proper light levels for a learning environment in all spaces. In the Cafeteria, looking at the ceiling, it appears that we randomly scattered light fixtures across the open ceiling. Still, the lighting was carefully calculated and coordinated with mechanical systems and operable roll-up doors to maintain high visual quality in this dining area. All lighting met the stringent California Title 24 standards and was networked digitally to remote control all lighting systems through integrated Building Automation Systems.
