Award Description: The intent of this award was to study and maximize the potential use of photovoltaic panels on the roof of the newly completed federal courthouse. An analysis of the building's structural system was made to determine that the structural framing could support an array of panels. In addition, the team investigated the potential for additional LEED points which could be gained by installing the solar panels. It was determined that 2 additional points could be achieved. The deliverables for this award were 1) a structural analysis to determine that adequate support exists for the solar array and 2) provide descriptive documents to solicit design/build proposals for the design and installation of the solar array.
Project Description: Preparation of the structural analysis and subsequent report.
Jobs Summary: The jobs retained through this award are professional level designers in the architecture/engineering field.
