Life-cycle cost of any facility or proposed system alternative is a key component to effective decision making. At the heart of this process is Energy evaluation. With actual proven net-zero energy projects and the tools to evaluate them, energy use is a primary focus of our firm.
Our professionals are experienced with current technology and the requirements for Title 24, ASHRAE, and LEED. We provide a wide range of energy modeling and simulation services and expertise and have considerable experience using commercial and proprietary energy software and analysis tools. Where software does not exist, we have developed our own tools. Where data is unavailable for modeling, we collect it ourselves.
tk1sc can assist with CALGreen support, LEED Administration, or Living Building Challenge certification. We cater our services to your project needs ranging from complete green and sustainable project management to energy consulting and recommendations. Whether you are interested in pursuing a green building certification or just looking to optimize efficiency, We are here to help.

This includes design, construction and testing support for all project types. We offer Strategy, Commissioning (fundamental, enhanced, and monitoring-based), Green Building Support, Auditing, Energy Modeling Simulation, HERS Testing, Incentive & Funding Applications services for homes, multifamily buildings, and midrise residences.
Measurement and Verification (M&V) is one of our most unique and strongest service offerings. Our cross discipline experience in energy assessment, commissioning, controls design, MEP engineering, incentive support, and in depth understanding of the various M&V protocols allows us to develop cost effective M&V Plans and strategies for all project sizes and complexities.
tk1sc can provide carbon audit and reporting services to our clients as well as developing Climate Action Plans to address our client’s goals to reduce their greenhouse gas footprint.
We offer lighting, daylighting, thermal comfort, solar radiation and computational fluid dynamic simulations. Our professionals are experienced with current technology and the requirements for Title 24, ASHRAE, and LEED. Our team is experienced and credentialed in major modeling software programs as well as emerging technologies. The majority of simulations are for energy optimization/models and are widely used for code compliance and green building certification.
Our team has experience with local, state, and national incentive programs related to energy and water savings. We also have unique expertise and experience assisting our clients with their Low-Income Housing Tax Credit Program applications and completing California Utility Allowance Calculations (CUAC). Other programs/providers we have provided support for include LADWP, EETAP, SCE, SDG&E, PG&E, RCx, and more.
Sustainable Design is a consideration in all of our projects. Understanding that any building is a long-term investment and workplace for those who occupy it, sustainable practices must be considered for all building systems. This philosophy continues through the life of a project from early system evaluation and life-cycle costing through construction administration and commissioning services.
Our engineers’ broad experience and highly developed analysis capabilities allow us to work on a wide scope of projects. We present the right solution for the project regardless of scale or detail. Our projects range from small remodel projects to large development projects and building portfolios. Our larger master planning projects focus on campus or development wide energy efficiency, central energy plants, and onsite energy generation
We are leaders in technical knowledge and application of building energy systems. Our team is closely linked with educational institutions providing teaching and research support. We also offer industry peer training on all topics related to our core services.
There are essentially three levels of energy audits as defined by ASHRAE’s “Procedures for Commercial Energy Audits.” Our engineers are equipped to provide LEED and CALGreen documentation at each level. tk1sc performs audits and commissioning for mechanical, electrical, lighting, plumbing, landscape irrigation and renewable energy systems in both new and existing buildings.
The Watson Land Company's new corporate headquarters is targeting LEED-NC Platinum certification to support and represent the company's philosophy of constructing sustainable buildings for their clients. Every effort was made to find the most energy efficient lighting fixtures available and to take advantage of daylight harvesting and occupancy sensors.
The Student Recreation Center is a 138,000 square-foot facility for exercise and leisure activity that promotes lifelong health and wellness. This project aimed to create a student recreational center where students can workout, hang out, and relax in a sustainable environment. The 2-story project includes a gymnasium, sports courts, weight training & fitness areas, multipurpose rooms & a 5,000 square-foot pool area with showers &locker rooms. tk1sc provided mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering, low voltage systems design, and lighting design for this eco-friendly LEED Gold certified building.
This new 4-story, 100,000 square-foot medical office building is located on the City of Hope Medical Center Campus in Duarte, CA, and provides office and administrative support to the Medical Center.
