Installation Type Details Campus architect would not approve the installation unless the array was visible. However, he wanted the array to fit in with the existing architectural design of the building, so additional funding was allocated in order to mount the panels on purlins spanning across the exposed concrete beams that extended from the roof. This approach required the use of a crane and structural engineering, which increased the cost of the project by ~$40,000.
