Project Overview:

Worked closely with the client and architect to develop plans for a 2 million dollar renovation of a 1985 shopping center into the Solaire Shoppes. With a major focus on providing “green” improvements to the center, renovations included extensive remodel of the building façade, increased pedestrian access and movement in the center, and xeriscape plantings throughout the parking lot and perimeter. Newly installed solar panels on the roof run new LED lights in the retrofitted parking lot. A wind turbine was installed to test the site’s potential to utilize wind energy in the future. Provided preliminary concept planning, Westminster Technical Review through approval, and construction documents. (Work completed under Valerian, LLC)
