The Bay Pines VA project included 123,194 SF of elevated structure, 1.6MW on one hospital campus, 167 T structures and 6,744 panels. It is located in an area with high wind and poor soil conditions. Build Group designed the solar canopy structures to withhold winds up to 135 MPH. To accommodate for the poor soil conditions, the team explored screw piles as a foundation.
This project utilized Build Group’s new patent-pending product, Solumbria. The system is safe to install and can be upgraded in the future. The installation will utilize REC 225 watt panels. Solumbria high wind design will be utilized on this project.
