This canopy project presented unique challenges from both an aesthetic and engineering perspective. The design of the canopy incorporated aesthetics to match existing structures. In addition, the design included perimeter canopy coverage with a cantilever column mounted to existing parking garage columns. Providing such a design required close coordination with Structural Engineers responsible for the concrete garage structure to confirm load carrying capacity as well as details for anchorage attachments.

RBI Solar's unparalleled turnkey approach to providing solar mounting solutions allowed us to achieve the desired look and functionality of this canopy project through attention to the detail of the Customer's needs and close coordination with other trades to ensure structural integrity of both the solar canopy and the existing garage structure.
