Development of Client Standards

We work hand in hand with clients and their facilities specialists to develop standards and installation methods that are safe, code-compliant, and establish a level of quality that ensures we can maintain an owner’s vision.

Power Distribution System Design

Our design capabilities on power system distribution include receptacle and device placement, branch circuiting, lighting and appliance panelboards, distribution boards, switchgear, motor control centers, substations, and beyond. We can cover all aspects of the power distribution system design within your building, site, and campus.

Emergency Systems Design

Our expertise and knowledge of electrical emergency system designs stretch from the smallest inverter to a central utility plant parallel-generator system with N+1redundancy and everything in between. When critical systems are desired or required for your project, we balance the safety and intent of the code with finding the most cost effective and design appropriate solutions available.

Lighting Systems

With support from our in-house experts at StudioK1, we can design and integrate decorative and exciting concepts with code-compliant controls that are functional and aesthetic. Having the best industry relationships with vendors and manufacturers allows us to fulfill design intent while maintaining budgets.

Power Systems Analysis

By using ETAP and SKM software simulations, we can participate in:

  • Equipment Evaluation
  • Short Circuit Current Rating (SCCR)
  • Protective System Coordination
  • Arc Flash Power Systems Analysis
  • Selective Coordination
Cost Studies

With many different solutions available these days, we help compare the variables and weigh the pros and cons on any project along with the associated upfront and long-term costs. Our relationships with industry specialists and subcontractors enable us access to the most up-to-date and accurate figures to help guide your project forward.

Construction Support

Once the project is in the hands of the contractor, we are on hand to provide complete construction support services, such as timely reviewing of submittals to routine field observations and reports throughout the construction process. Our coordination with the construction team helps ensure the design intent is delivered according to the owner’s needs and goals while maintaining a budget and avoiding surprises.

PROJECTS
Chino Hills Government Center
Chino Hills, CA

Part of a mixed-use, master-planned community, the Chino Hills Government Center was designed to be the heart of the city. The center consists of a 56,000-square-foot city hall, a 28,000-square-foot library, a 30,000-square-foot sheriff's facility, and a 15,000-square-foot fire department. A central plaza serves as a civic gathering place for the community. The project grounds itself in the local topography. Each building is anchored by extra-thick accent walls clad in natural stone. The rough-hewn material relates to the rugged hills that form a backdrop to the site. Four columns support a massive "floating" roof; a breezeway connects the city hall and library entries. The breezeway shades lobbies and frames views to the freestanding fire station on the opposite side of the plaza. For the exterior, designers chose colors typical of southwest arid regions: beige and tan, ochre and sienna.‍Sustainable features include daylit interiors, as well as water conservation and stormwater management strategies. The design team also incorporated a native, drought-tolerant landscape. The new government center campus includes four buildings, a City Hall (Council Chambers, offices of the City Manager, City Clerk, Building Department, Community Services, Community Development, Data Center and Support Departments), Fire Administration Headquarters, Sheriff Facility, and County Library. The Sheriff's Facility was designed to essential facility standards.
