Carport

Brief

Design, build and erect a carport for 8 cars. The roof to support 64 solar panels.

Commissioning the carports  allowed the client to increase their P.V. generation capacity without taking up precious land used for parking.

 

Description

The foundations are made from strips of concrete with galvanized steel plates bolted to them. The larch beams are supported above the ground, so no timber is in contact with the ground. This reduces the chance of the timber perishing giving a life of many decades. Stainless steel plates and pins form the easily assembled joints. Larch is used for its durable properties.
