LocationOrlando, FL
General ContractorModern Plumbing Industries, Inc.
Year Completed2009

The University has been going green for some time. The Tower 2 dormitory houses 500+ students and consumes massive amounts of water daily. Modern Plumbing Industries (MPI), in coordination with the school, installed a solar water heating system to help satisfy demand and reduce expenses associated with water heating. MPI, acting as the prime contractor, installed a thirty solar panel array on the roof of Tower 2. The panels were attached to steel brackets on the ground: 3 steel structures, 10 panels each and craned onto the roof. The steel bracketing was then attached to the building structure. Coordination and design played a major role in the success of this project. The University continues collecting data on cost savings and feedback has been very positive.

Highlights:

  • 30 solar panel array
  • Two 420 gallon storage tanks
  • Building Information Modeling (BIM)
