Projects

We undertake many projects and relish the opportunity to tackle interesting and unusual solar system design challenges.

Solar system design can vary from the small and simple to the large and complicated.  Some require Computer design modelling to take into consideration shading as the sun moves during the day.

The following provides a sample of what we have been involved in.
