DESCRIPTION

Goss was the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineer-of-record, as well as the prime consultant, for the design of MEP infrastructure to accommodate the addition of a new kiln and enclosure structure at the University of California, Irvine, School of Arts Sculpture Studio. As the project lead for the new kiln and enclosure, we managed architectural and structural engineering sub-consultants. Mechanical scope included extending a new flue from the new kiln up to the roof of the Sculpture Studio. The electrical scope included providing power for the new kiln controller and providing new exterior light fixtures with an occupancy sensor to serve the new kiln enclosure. The plumbing scope included extending new natural gas piping from below grade and routed up to the new kiln enclosure with shut-off valves to serve the new kiln. Goss also coordinated the design and construction of the new kiln enclosure with the architect and structural engineer to meet the client’s requests, providing a CMU structure with a metal deck.
