Veterans Affairs Solar Parking

Langan performed geotechnical investigations for solar modules for 14 sites at the Veterans Affairs – Los Angeles complex (North Campus). The Veteran Affairs (VA) complex is comprised of various buildings, roads, parking areas, and landscaped areas. Each site consists of two to four parking lots. The objective of our investigation was to evaluate the subsurface conditions and develop recommendations for the foundations of solar panels to be installed on top of carports. The solar panels used a parking lot canopy “T” structure supported on drilled pier foundations.
