Project Type: Canopies / Shade Structures Architect: MMPV Design
We have designed solar PV carports, canopies, and shade structures on dozens of sites throughout California. Our successful collaboration with contractors, energy consultants, school districts and municipalities has resulted in over 40 MW – and counting – of renewable energy generation.
The Division of the State Architect (DSA) offers Pre-Check Approval of certain types of structures, including PV Carport and Canopy structures, when constructed on K-12 or community college campuses. This allows these projects to bypass DSA's full plan-review and approval process, offering significantly shorter project schedules. We have extensive experience in the creation of Pre-Check Approved structures, and with implementing Pre-Check designs on school sites throughout the state.
