solar car park shade structures
PV Structures are a true Design and Construct company. Unlike others we don’t work with an “off the shelf” product that is limited in both design and size. Our Solar Car Park Shade Structures can cover from a simple single space at 5m wide to and entire roof top car park of 30-40m wide. Our structures are only limited by site parameters and budget.
Working with the best in the industry, we understand the needs and requirements of a Solar Shade Structure returning a reasonable ROI, we use our considerable experience and product knowledge to design the best and most efficient solutions, many times going outside of the square to be able to achieve that better “bang for buck” with our clients Solar Shade Structure requirements.
Our extensive project experience at building 50+ car park shade structures in all States around Australia, on both greenfield and existing retrofit sites, means that firstly we understand fully the clients requirements on the site and secondly, the client knows upfront from us, about the potential issues and pitfalls with their site and what to expect during the project. That way there are no surprises and the projects run more smoothly.
Whilst we are extremely flexible with our designs, we have simplified the process for standard clients, where we have some basic concepts for them to start to off with, which are the most efficient profiles. All of which can be made to varying widths and lengths and can old older style panels, right through the more modern larger output modules.
This profile is a basic and cost efficient Car Park Solar Shade Structure profile, that is designed to withstand the harsh Australian conditions and can be site engineered for all wind regions Australia has to offer.
This profile has a more pleasing and cleaner aesthetic Car Park Solar Shade Structure profile, than the economy model, surprisingly it won’t add that much more to the project bottom line, however it adds a certain level of elegance with is clean lines and is clear of obstructions under the rafter that is designed to withstand the harsh Australian conditions and can be site engineered for all wind regions Australia has to offer.
Combining our un-matched experience in both traditional Car Park Shade Structures via our sister company Shade and Membrane Structures Australia and our extensive knowledge of installing more Solar Car Park Shade Structures across Australia than anyone else, has allowed us to come up with an industry first – the PVS-Hybrid model. Once again, the design is flexible, however its huge advantage is that it combines both the traditional car park shade structure and the more modern solar car park shade structure.
Why? Whilst Solar Car Park Shade Structures are the only shade structure that comes with a tangible and quantifiable ROI, they can be up to 3 times more expensive than traditional shade at the front end. Whilst a 6-7year ROI makes up for that at the back end, for some clients the initial CAPEX spend is to difficult to account for within a single financial year. Our Hybrid Profile, allows a bit of the best of both worlds. Meaning that we can future proof a clients site by completing the structural requirements of a large site, however only cover a protion of it with Solar initially and the rest with traditional shade methodology. Then, in a future financial year, we can return and add in the required parts of our frames that allow Solar to be connected for the rest of the site to become solar.
This approach decreases initial financial capacity concerns, by spreading the entire solar project across 2, 3 or maybe more financial years to get to the desired solar out come.
