Projects

 

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

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.

There are too many to list here but the following provides a sample of the interesting and sometimes unusual proejcts we have been involved in.
