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.
Working with landscape architects RJM Design Group and architect James Mickartz, tk1sc has helped energize downtown Ontario, California, with its new Town Center Square. The development of Ontario Town Square is part of the City of Ontario's plan to invigorate downtown Ontario and transform the area into a model of sustainable living, for which tk1sc provided Electrical and Audio-Visual Engineering services. The project team designed this Town Center's exterior to use 34% less energy than stipulated by California's stringent Title 24 energy code. Meeting civic concerns for safe light levels, energy savings, and low maintenance, StudioK1 devised a simple but elegant lighting scheme, supporting the rhythms of the central spine and the nautilus-shaped pathways and highlighting the new civic icon, the clock tower.
tk1sc provided engineering services for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and low voltage services on this 20,000 square foot addition to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Scientific Investigations Division. The project includes laboratory spaces and separate office spaces for controlled substance investigators. Crime scene investigations are provided with two-vehicle examination bays and evidence processing laboratory stations with a separate open office area. The project provided Firearms staff with workstations for evidence processing and documentation, in addition to the indoor firing range and projectile recovery tank rooms.
