This project is a new greenhouse & headhouse space building with wet and dry research laboratories, growth chamber housing, and space for faculty and academic support. The project is envisioned to host multiple scientific disciplines engaged in collaborative research.

Vans Headquarters
Costa Mesa

Responsible design was a key factor for Vans during the process of building out their current home base. This project included shell and core upgrades and tenant improvements in an existing 179,000 SF commercial office building. The building is far more efficient than a typical Title 24 building- achieving 95% energy savings over the 2005 California Energy Code used as the LEED standard at that time. The project earned a LEED Platinum certification scoring 118 points, while the range for a Platinum Score is 80-110. In addition to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services, tk1sc also provided low voltage systems design, commissioning, and LEED administration services for this project.

Hoag Hospital - Heart Vascular Institute
Newport Beach, CA

This project was the first of its kind for Hoag and included the nation's first ambient experience cath lab. Our scope of work on this 533,680 square foot hybrid surgery suite included all new HVAC and plumbing systems and EMS consulting services. In addition to the cath lab, this project consists of a14-bay swing Pre-Op/PACU, Physicians Lounges, Staff Lounge, Public spaces, and Exterior Entry. The hybrid operating room HVAC systems include state-of-the-art temperature and humidity control systems utilizing series desiccant wheel technology. Using the series desiccant wheel technology, low room temperatures and humidities can be achieved while also reducing cooling energy use. We also monitored hybrid OR indoor air for temperature, humidity, CO2, particle count, and VOCs. We utilized indoor air quality to monitor unoccupied air handling system setback modes to reduce energy costs further.
