Code, Life Safety & Fire

Our in-house Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) team at tk1sc are experts in building, fire, and life safety code consulting and design. Our FPE team works side-by-side with the entire design team from the start, whether it is a tenant improvement or a complex project. The tk1sc FPE team provides expertise and experience in code consulting and design solutions that support the client's vision with the necessary compliance requirements, ranging from utilizing prescriptive solutions based on building and fire code compliance to performance-based design for complicated or unique projects. The tk1sc FPE team also provides support to translate and negotiate the requirements of code officials with the project's vision in mind. We provide cost-effective solutions that meet all required codes and regulations. This all results in fewer redesigns, a more coordinated upfront design, and a design tailored to the project.

UC Riverside - Multidisciplinary Research Building
Riverside, CA

The Multidisciplinary Research Building 1 (MRB1) is a new laboratory integrated into the University’s strategy for strengthening both research and teaching capabilities. The building includes wet labs and research space, a vivarium, offices, classrooms, assembly areas, exterior terraces, and a 4-story atrium. tk1sc used Pyrosim/FDS as well as pathfinder in order to design the mechanical smoke exhaust system for the atrium. The 141,000 square foot facility was designed to achieve LEED Platinum, and meet UCR’s goals to expand their interdisciplinary academic research capabilities. Working with the design-build team of Hensel Phelps with SmithGroupJJR, we are providing code consulting services for UC Riverside’s new Multidisciplinary Research Building 1. Once complete MRB1 will provide bio-safety level 2 (BSL2) wet research labs, dry labs, core lab support facilities, vivarium, faculty and academic support. The 141,000 sq ft facility is designed to achieve LEED Platinum, and meet UCR’s goals to expand their interdisciplinary academic research capabilities
