Project Management

  • Full schedule, cost and timeline management
  • Permitting with state, national and local jurisdictions as needed
  • Meeting coordination among the design and construction teams
  • Owner’s representative during engineering and construction

Predesign: For Development and Sales teams

During this phase, MMPV helps their client establish a system size and site parameters with informative drawings based on real-world constraints. Predesign can compromise of a single drawing and may take up several iterations to help the client finalize module locations and performance.

The scope at this stage may include:
  • Coordination with client to achieve wattage goals
  • Providing client with a preliminary Site Plan/ Solar Layout in CAD with client selected modules
  • Site visits / Site familiarization and the research as-built project archives are available upon request
The site plan will take the following into account:
  • System string sizing, AD/DC ratio, Ground Coverage ratio
  • PVSyst and or Helioscope shading considerations as provided by client
  • Pre-designed racking system constraints (for utility scale and ground mounts)
  • Easement and title report constraints

Design Development: Refining the design for development and engineering teams.

Some developers start at this phase when their design parameters have already been established, but would like further detail as to the exact column, fencing and tracker locations. We encourage clients to provide a survey of the site at this stage.

  • Building and property line offsets are also taken into account.
  • Code research and compliance (typical for institutional and commercial scale projects including DSA in California)
  • Coordinating underground and topographic discoveries per as-builts or survey when available
  • Finalizing system size
  • Finalizing module type and module configuration
  • Finalizing steel parameters for elevated structures
  • Finalizing structural and electrical constraints on site

EPC Phase Assistance: Development and Engineering teams

  • Backgrounds / Site Plan in CAD for all design team members to use in their permit sets
  • Topographic coordination per survey
  • Survey integrated into site plans (MMPVDesign can contract the surveyor, if needed)
  • Coordinating final design with electrical, structural and civil engineers
