Challenges

Our firm was contracted to design and install a solar photovoltaic system on the roof of this popular downtown restaurant.

The roof system needed significant structural improvements just to meet current building codes.


Our Approach

We assembled a team of engineers, designers and installers and we were able to put forth a plan that met or exceeded all applicable building codes and operated within the owner’s budget. The installation was completed on time.
