In an effort to continue the sustainability initiatives for Hobbs Brook Real Estate, Columbia oversaw the PV solar array design and installation at their 275 Wyman Street facility in Waltham. The PV solar electric system was installed on an existing parking structure, situated in the most efficient and effective location.
Columbia’s energy plan called for the installation of a long-span galvanized structural steel canopy on the top level of the existing parking garage. A new steel framing system supports the 581kW PV solar electrical system, which will generate 630,00 kWh of electrical power per year.
The sloped PV solar system crowns the existing parking garage creating a protected parking area for tenants.
