We constructed a solar car park shade, with the addition of out-of-hours security lighting, within our clients existing parking area.

The Challenge

Our client, located in North East Victoria, required the design and installation of a shade structure within their existing car park area. The shade had to capture solar energy while providing security lighting for our clients 24/7 operations.

The QA Electrical Solution

We worked in conjunction with a local engineering company to create a solution within the existing car park area. Not only did this protect staff from the seasonal weather conditions in the North East of Victoria, but it also enabled the commercial buildings energy use to be offset by the solar system.

Our Results

The project highlights our expertise in designing building formats that utilise renewable technologies as part of the building structure. Designs like this are beneficial for our client, their staff and the environment through carbon offset and the creation of better spaces.

Integration of the new structure into the site’s existing solar system was a key consideration in the design phase of the project. Achieving this demonstrates our flexibility.

The QA Advantage

As we were able to be presented as the principal for this project, our client had one point of contact for the entirety of the build. This allowed us to work within the clients’ budget to deliver an outstanding product that reflects our strength and ability from the design phase through to delivery and handover.
