The project included installing 60 hot water solar panels on rooves of Daley and Dedmond Residence Halls, the associated drainback tanks, a 2,500 gallon storage tank, and controls.
The hot water generated by solar panels is used to pre-heat the existing hot water heaters incoming water to serve domestic usage of both buildings. The project is part of a Maryland Clean Energy Center (MCEC) program and provides a total of six (6) energy efficiency upgrades at the Coppin State University campus in Baltimore.
Structural Engineering Design: Structural scope consisted of inspecting and evaluating the existing structure for the additional loads, and the preparation of plans for ballast mounted panel supports. The scope of work consisted of structural engineering design of the new structure as well as construction administration services.
