Building Code Compliance & Solar Services
Building Code Compliance and Resiliency
Safety is top priority for everyone, and a code compliance review is a an important early step for many permitted projects. It can become complex and expensive to retrofit a building for projects that involve changes to MEP parts (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) and also ADA/Accessibility requirements; especially if you have to make changes late in the process.
Building "Above Code" involves making the structure, and materials used, stronger than they need to be. Additionally landscaping and water management can be factors you may not be aware of. Investing a little more now can reap dividends - and sometime improve your insurance rate. We're here to sort through all that for you.
The Code Group at Burnham has extensive experience being a licensed third-party reviewer for cities and for stand-alone projects; let us take a look before you submit to avoid costly surprises down the line.
Solar Services - 15,000 roofs permitted... and counting!
For nearly 15 years, Burnham has permitted all types of solar arrays, and recently integrated battery storage and we're getting charged up to help EV (Electrical Vehicles) adoption accelerate. Using our proprietary remote verification and inspection App, The Burnham Eye, for over 10 years, we're on the cutting edge of solar verification and technology.
Orlando has set ambitious renewable goals, with all municipal operations to be powered by 100% renewable energy by 2030, and a 2050 goal of 100% renewable energy city-wide. Duke Energy and the City of Orlando have great programs to ease the transition, cost, and permitting. These are the common types of systems:
- Solar Thermal
- Photovoltaic (Solar Panels)
- Hybrid Systems (Solar + Photovoltaic)
- Solar Attic Fan
Battery storage is often a component of these systems and we make sure the system can accommodate the loads, and also the peripherals it can be used for in the building. We permitted the largest battery storage for New York City - so you're in good hands.
