Tyler Mavichien, Assoc. AIA is an Associate at Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., an architecture and engineering firm in Emeryville. He joined the firm in July of 2015 after graduating from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Architecture. He has been involved in a wide range of projects with topics including building envelope and leakage investigation, curtain wall design, water testing, investigations for litigation support and construction document preparation.
Recent projects include a commercial shopping complex in Roseville, CA, where he performed water tests of reported leaks, observed inspection openings, and repair design and recommendation. Much of his time was dedicated to plant observation of window wall fabrication and review of insulating glass units for 2155 Webster, a 77-unit residential complex consisting of the adaptive reuse of an existing office building in San Francisco. His most recent project involves being on the window, envelope and roof waterproofing consulting team for Uptown Station in Oakland, a renovation of the former Sears department store building located at 20th and Broadway into a mixed-use retail, dining and commercial center.
Prior to joining WJE, Mr. Mavichien was heavily involved in American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers activities at the University of Oregon’s student branch. He was able to travel to conferences in New York City and Chicago and present a research project graphically showing the movement of air in the University of Oregon Lillis Business Complex. With his technical background he looks forward to opportunities in building science and envelope consulting.
As an associate member of AIA, he is appreciative for the resources and professional development the East Bay chapter provides in addition to starting the architecture licensure process.
