With our strong structural/mechanical background, and our collaborative partnerships in the growing solar industry, we are equipped to assist in the design and engineering of solar installations.

Our expertise in solar installations includes the following services:

 

Roof Capacity Analysis

An engineering analysis of the existing roof to determine, from a structural perspective, the feasibility of adding a solar installation. The output of this service is an Engineering Technical Memorandum outlining the assumptions and results of the analysis. 

Structural Roof Survey with Detailed Structural Drawing

If complete structural drawings are not available for the roof capacity analysis, we can do a survey to produce a technical structural roof CAD drawing. Drawing details will show structural member sizes and locations.

Hanging Dead Load Survey

We can complete a load survey if there are hanging dead loads with unidentified weights relevant to completing the structural analysis of adding a solar installation to a roof.

Solar Mounting Review

A solar mounting review provides verification of the required ballasting for solar installations to protect against uplift and sliding, based on the location-specific environmental conditions. A racking and hardware analysis can also be provided based on the unique needs of each project.  

Installation Inspection

Following final installation, a Pure Mosaic representative can inspect it to ensure that all analysis assumptions remain valid and that the installation has been done correctly.

Plan View Roof Survey with Detailed Structural Drawing

We are able to provide a technical plan view CAD drawing of the roof showing overall dimensions and detailed location of all relevant objects like mechanical equipment, vents, roof access, etc.
