Hambro Portable Parking Structure
St. Lambert, QC United States | 2010
The Bergen County Parking Garage Solar Canopy is constructed of steel joists and girders engineered specifically to house solar panels on the rooftop of the garage with no impact to the structures parking slots. Bergen Countys prior success with galvanizing on their bridge projects made hot-dip galvanizing a stand alone choice for this project as it could withstand the coastal New Jersey weather and offer them longevity with minimal future maintenance.
The Bergen County Parking Garage Solar Canopy was a win-win for all.
The need for a quality product was crucial because of the high visibility of the garage. The maintenance-free qualities of galvanizing supported with direct attention between the engineer, fabricator and galvanizer placed upon the design of the project ensured a high-quality design that would be visually pleasing as well as structurally sound for decades to come. The catch phrase erect it and forget it was uttered during the preliminary specification discussions and reiterated at the completion of the project. Not only are the joists supporting renewable energy, but the steel used in the project was produced from recycled scraps. Couple that with the savings the community will receive due to the power generated from the solar panels, the Bergen County Parking Garage Solar Canopy was a win-win for all.
