STRUCTURAL APPRAISAL

MCS requires that installers assess the structure that the solar PV panels will be installed on.  Solar Partner uses a design program to assess whether the structure is suitable to withstand the additional loads.  The assessment includes - 

  • Weight Loading 
  • Snow Load 
  • Wind Loading

In the event the structure is not of standard construction, Solar Partner will arrange for the structure to be assessed by a independent structural engineer.  This is very important for the structural integrity of the building/roof, but also to ensure Building Control approvals can be obtained.  The Building Control Approval will be required in the evert the building / structure is sold in the future.
