How We Build

 
 

Pre-Construction

Prior to every construction, we provide an estimate of the cost of your project based on comparable jobs, as well as our teams’ development experience. Afterwards, the preconstruction team approves and refines utilizing subcontractor input, constructability studies, phasing and site staging plans, while schedules are furnished by the logistics & scheduling team. From preconstruction and operations, project contracts, insurance requirements, to legal, the planning team provides a smooth transition between these processes.


Scheduling Limitations

We understand that every project is unique, and therefore, we always anticipate possible constraints that may interfere with scheduled projects. To ensure the smoothest transition possible, our team carefully reviews job sites to identify any limitations that may delay the project.


Scheduling of Project & Execution

Following careful constructability reviews, we determine the most efficient schedule that accommodates project goals. From design details, budget of projects, to schedule constraints, we carefully weigh any concerns that were drawn from site visits to determine the most efficient sequence schedule. After the schedule has been established, our team makes sure to understand and lay out every facet of the project before the start of work. We ensure that every team member are in communication with one another, so that everyone thoroughly understands the overall schedule and project goals.


Design & Build

Whether your project is in a residential or commercial space, Orion’s carport systems are adaptable to support any PV module. Our carport systems are designed to reduce field installation labor, and can be fixed at tilt angles ranging from 0 to 30 degrees in either Tee or Semi-Cantilever structures. With a 15 year limited warranty, our carport systems are made of high strength galvanized steel structures that can withstand any weather conditions found across the U.S., including Hawaii. Saving you time and money, our carports also include prefabricated components, as well as integrated purlin design that make the installation process quick and easy. In addition, Orion Carport Systems and Construction also offer custom design solutions to meet the needs of your project.
