Top 5 U.S. Big Box Retailer
This client installed solar arrays on 500 stores, many of which had roofs that would not last the length of these new contracts.
Align roof service life with solar lease length to avoid the costs of removing the arrays to perform roof replacements.
- Assess which roofs do not need attention, which may be aligned with repairs, and which will require removal and put-back of the array.
- Focus on developing a repair plan to address the roofs that could have their life extended to align with the length of the lease, thereby avoiding excess cost.
- Plan, manage, and ensure quality on all repairs.
While not all roofs could be saved, significant opportunities to avoid cost were uncovered through project discovery, decision-making support, and proper planning.
With over $10M in estimated cost avoidance for the initial 30 stores repaired, vital budget dollars have been freed up to execute life-extending repairs on additional buildings.
