RESIDENTIAL SOLAR CARPORT
Our residential solar carport, (built and inspected in 2020 to support a 30 panel solar PV array system), required an independent professional structural engineer evaluation due to modifications of the County of Hawaii building structural code last year.
Other structural engineering firms on the BIG ISLAND and in Honolulu all replied that they were backlogged with clients, it would be at least 6 months before they could even consider my project.
When I contacted Dana at BE Structural, she replied “YES WE CAN! take on your project right now”.
Within days, Dana’s PE team began and promptly completed their comprehensive structural evaluation with stamped documentation.
My Solar PV system provider was then able to submit this required structural evaluation for my solar permit application, which the County of Hawaii building permit department has now approved.
Had it not been for BE STRUCTURAL’S “CAN DO” attitude and professional evaluation to satisfy the revised County of Hawaii building code requirement, I’m sure that I would still be in search of / waiting for a professional engineering firm to accept my project.
BE STRUCTURAL is a superb solution provider.
