McGregor Park Arena
Carmanah will engineer and construct three rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) generating facilities in the fall of 2012. The systems are located on York Mills, McGregor and Mimico Arenas and are expected to produce more than 250,000 kWh of clean, renewable energy annually for the City of Toronto.
The variety of roof materials on these particular host facilities comprised of corrugated steel, standing seam and modified bitumen, required Carmanah to conduct a comprehensive onsite structural review and roofing upgrades for two of the three buildings. Carmanah worked closely with Pyramids Engineering to perform the structural analysis and Foran's roofing to perform the roof repair work.
