FLA is getting a New Set of Shades

FLA will be getting new solar awnings on the south and east side of the building.  The awnings will reduce glare as well as produce 45-kilowatts of solar energy.  Construction is planned to start on July 7 and continue through the end of August.   The building permits are still in process so the start date may change slightly.  

The project will:

  • Reduce solar reflections to the parking lot 
  • Generate clean solar energy that will be utilized by UCAR
  • Maintain views to the outside

The project manager, David Patterson, will be available from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on June 30 and from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on July 2 in the FLA lobby area.   Feel free to stop by anytime during these sessions to ask questions and learn more about the project. 

Visitors to FLA should watch Staff Notes for parking changes, UCAR shuttle information, and obey construction barriers and signage.

Will this event be webcast to the public by NCAR|UCAR?:
