Sustainable & Solar Experience Projects

Ski Barn – Paramus & Lawrenceville, NJSki Barn – Paramus & Lawrenceville, NJ

A premier pro ski and snowboard shop, Ski Barn contacted Amber Jack Solar to install solar panels for 2 stores. KSI performed a site visit to document the existing roof framing to determine if there was adequate load carrying capacity to support new solar panels. Through careful analysis identifying areas of placement, KSI worked hand in hand with Amber Jack Solar to coordinate the installation.

Solar feasibility review of two conjoined one-story structural steel framed roofs.  The warehouse was 18,000sf and the mechanics shop was 11,300sf.  The roof framing consisted of open web steel joists at 4’-0” ft o.c. supported on steel wide flange beams which spanned 50 ft and were supported by steel columns.

Corrados Children's Wear Centre - Clifton, NJ

Solar feasibility review of a one-story structural steel framed roof.  The roofing system was flat and consisted of EPDM over insulation and 1 1/2” metal deck.  Limiting factors for the solar array placement were existing roof top units and areas adjacent to large signage overlooking the Garden State Parkway.

Lukoil Garage & Canopy - Oakland, NJ

Site survey to document the existing gas pump canopy framing and automotive garage roof framing.  The 1200sf canopy will have mechanically anchored solar panels and the 1200sf garage will utilize a ballasted solar system.

Glen Rock Stair Corp - Franklin Lakes, NJ

An exhaustive structural survey of the complex was performed to document the roof framing, which was later analyzed by our engineers using field data, structural modeling software (Ram Advanse), and industry data. Several different roof framing systems ranging from pre-engineered wood roof trusses to steel framed flat roofs and more were reviewed.  Of the total roof area of 13,500sf, 9,300sf was solar ready.

275 Industrial Way - Eatontown, NJ
