and addition on a 11.7 acre site

The PSTC was an unusual project typology with


fairly usual challenges such as project because
the for several reasons:
- tight budget
- complex program, especially concerning
security, acoustics and other technical
issues

I lead the development of the design with the


Trainers, Facility Management and the County.
The DD and CD process involved bi-weekly meet-
ings with 16 people on average in attendance.
I was also very involved with consultant coordi-
nation. Some of the most rewarding moments
where coming up with inventive HVAC delivery
in tight spaces while maintaining good acoustics
and keeping costs low.

Channing House was a challenging project for


several reasons:
- very tight sight
- flanked on two sides by home created
height limitations
- connecting to an existing building at the
basement and second floor
- multiple jurisdictions, including OSHPD

The project architect and I comprised the de-


sign development and CD team. I was heavily
involved with all aspects of design development,
creating and coordinating the CDs and permit-
ting. Working through challenges with the engi-
neers was a very satisfying aspects of the project.
I took the plans, especially the core spaces, and
elevations through considerable re-design, pri-
marily because the structural and mechanical
systems had not been taken into account during
schematic design.

Another enjoyable challenge was the design and


detailing of two nurse stations that also needed to
function as reception desks and activity stations. MODEL BY OTHERS

- fold down cafeteria

efficiency during CDs and Fast-tracked
Permitting, which were the phases I was most
involved. Challenges where familiar to the
typology: keeping the unit types low,
maintaining important features such as 3 court
yards, 1 shared and 2 dedicated and
using design dollars in ways that both in-
crease the real estate value and are enjoyed
by the tenants.
