Our insight into project-specific solution-based designs allows for flexible, innovative, and dependable infrastructures, ensuring a level of quality unlike any other.

Master Plans

From multi-buildings to central plants, city blocks, and neighborhoods, we participate with the client to plan and future-proof a campus or project to accommodate electrical service needs and infrastructure.

Facility Assessment

Whether it be for an existing parcel looking for an upgrade or a prospective opportunity that requires additional analysis, our services for facility assessment and reporting, equipment analysis, building and site capabilities, and future needs are available to help you determine your next steps.

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.

Pitzer College Housing
Claremont, CA

The Second Phase of the Pitzer Student Housing project consists of two 4-story buildings with approximately 90,000 square feet of multi-story Student Dormitory while housing 304 Beds in 79 units. The project includes an open common area in between buildings. Amenities include computer labs, classrooms, study rooms, and offices. Systems include graywater collection, photovoltaic panels, green roofs, living walls, and permeable concrete. The exterior of the buildings consists mainly of plaster, fiber cement siding, and operable windows with the mechanical system tied to it. tk1sc provided full-service engineering services for mechanical, electrical, plumbing and low voltage designs. The project is the first to receive LEED Platinum certification on the Pitzer campus.

VIEW PROJECT
JLL Irvine Headquarters
Irvine, CA

Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated is a global commercial real estate services company that provides investment management services worldwide, including services to institutional and retail investors and high-net-worth individuals.‍Needing a bigger workspace after acquiring HFF, JLL relocated their Irvine headquarters to a new 35,000 square-foot office at Intersect located at 17877 Von Karman in Irvine, CA. The new office space can accommodate approximately 150 employees with collaboration, teamwork, and transparency in mind. ‍tk1sc provided mechanical, plumbing, and lighting design services on this project. The design required collaboration with the architect on larger open ceiling conditions and full-height wall construction, and proper HVAC zoning from base building VAVs with electric reheat. In addition, we collaborated during design and construction with the architect, general contractor, mechanical sub-contractor, and building landlord regarding proper openings in wall construction to ensure return air paths back to main floor return air fans.
