Electrical Systems Design

From branch circuiting to high-voltage campus loop master planning and design, and everything in between, tk1sc brings the knowledge and experience to deliver a safe, reliable, and efficient electrical system to your project, however small or large. 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.

PROJECTS
The Legacy Magnet Academy
Tustin, CA

This brand new 120,000 square-foot cutting-edge educational concept space provides students with refuge to study, collaborate, and recreate for both middle and high school students. Seamless integration of outdoor learning area with indoor study create unconfined classrooms produces a highly efficient use of programmed space. reducing the non-educational area such as corridors and foyers. Elevated pedestrian walkway interconnects all buildings and serves as an easily identifiable pathway and sense of direction. tk1sc provided electrical, low voltage, lighting, fire alarm, and audio-visual services.

VIEW PROJECT
Airborne Systems Tenant Improvements
Santa Ana, CA

Airborne Systems is a world leader in military parachute design, manufacturing, and training. They tasked tk1sc with providing full-service MEP engineering and commissioning services for their new office, warehouse, and manufacturing space. Located in Santa Ana's Alere's Orange County Industrial Center. This 159,163 Square Foot space provides Airborne System enough space to operate. The intention for this space design was to create a better connection between the front office and the manufacturing floor that blurs the lines between the two functions. This space's open ceiling concepts allowed us to show off our design work while adding to the overall rugged and industrial feel of this space.

VIEW PROJECT
The Scripps Research Institute - Stein Library
La Jolla, CA

This project was a renovation of the Stein Library that accommodated the relocation of a computational User Group. The renovation included relocating existing computational user group functions from the Molecular and Experimental Medicine (MEM) Building at 3545 Cray Court to the Stein Research Center's fourth-floor library at 10660 North Torrey Pines Road. The library is attached to both TSRI's Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center for Chemical Sciences and the Scripps Green Hospital, and the library is shared with Scripps Health. tk1sc provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services on this project.
