TBP/Triton will begin construction in January of 2015 on the Hunters Point Community Library. Located on a prominent site along the East River, the design for the 21,000 square foot Queens Library at Hunters Point takes inspiration from the views of Manhattan and Roosevelt Island. Glazed cuts in the recycled foamed aluminum facade will allow users to great views toward the city as they move up a series of perimeter stairs. Read more at the link below:

Design-Build Team of T.B. Penick & Sons and Domusstudio Architecture Completes Child Development Center at Camp Pendleton


OCEANSIDE, CA (December 10, 2013)  --  Construction has been completed on the $14.3 million design-build Child Development Center (CDC) at Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton.   The new 25,155-square foot learning center will accommodate up to 268 children of Marine Corps personnel and incorporate into its curriculum the Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Years Education.  T.B. Penick & Sons served as the general contractor and domusstudio architecture the project architect. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest was the contracting agency.
 
The learning center is located on a site near the base where a public school once stood eight years ago.  Camp Pendleton incorporated property from the former school site for the new facility requiring the expansion of the base perimeter and installation of 11 acres of boundary fence surrounding the base, according to Kevin Moen, project manager with T.B. Penick.
 
The CDC includes 18 classrooms serving infants, toddlers, preschool, and school aged children for before and after school care, as well as a main lobby/reception area, 1,100 square-foot kitchen, administrative and health and break rooms.  Also central to the design is an atelier – or art studio/multipurpose room – located in the center of the courtyard. Construction of the facility consists of mixed masonry block with metal standing seam roof and metal stud interior drywall.
 
Since the learning center follows the Reggio Emilia Approach to education that focuses on collaboration and relationships – not just among teachers, parents and the children, but also the environment – it was imperative that we factored those underlying needs into the design,” said lead architect John Pyjar.
 
Pyjar said siting the building was important both in terms of how people interact in the space as well as its connection to the environment. There were also special considerations for traffic flow and safety that come with doing a project for small children as well as security issues essential on a military base.
 
“By offsetting the entrance and one wing, we were able to give children, family members and visitors an immediate visual connection through the front doors to the atelier, which is essential to the project-based philosophy of the Reggio Emilia Approach,” Pyjar explained.
 
Although the single-story structure is large, with the use of residential scale gabled roofs, trellises and covered walkways the design team was able to create a place for the children which does not overwhelm them yet provides a variety of experiential spaces. From the sunlit piazza that becomes a gathering place and reinforces the community atmosphere to the small nodes of the entry walk, parents can stop and interact with each other or their children. Even the lobby invites interaction with its fish aquarium and comfortable furnishings.
 
Art easels and tables and display areas encourage the children to express themselves, while both interior and exterior spaces utilize an array of textures, visual elements and flow patterns – and plants blowing in the breeze – to stimulate sensory experiences.
 
“The center is all about touching, moving, listening, seeing and hearing,” Pyjar said.  Keeping the outdoors in mind, playgrounds were fashioned with age-appropriate equipment. A pathway leading from the piazza connects with the surrounding environment so children can experience and explore nature.   Floor-to-ceiling glass in the classrooms create an indoor/outdoor feel and continue that connection with nature while providing natural light.
 
The design team took special note in designing an energy efficient building envelope and mechanical/lighting systems. Providing a solar photovoltaic panel system also contribute to earning LEED gold certification for the project.
 
TB Penick team members included:  Amber Pendergrass, project administrator; Bob Clair, project design manager; Kevin Moen, project construction manager; Pat Donovan, supervisor;
Mark Minieri, quality control manager; and Julian Moen, site safety and health officer.
 
Domusstudio Architecture team members included:  John Pyjar, principal in charge; Valentina Bertolizio, project architect; Albert Lee, job captain.
 
Navy team members include:  Steve Rosenstein, project manager (NAVFAC Southwest Central IPT); Sean Walsh, design manager (NAVFAC SOUTHWEST Central IPT); Leilani Murray, contracting officer (ROICC Camp Pendleton); and Lauren Nygard construction manager (ROICC Camp Pendleton).
