Solar engineering, procurement and construction firm Martifer Solar, has been awarded its third contract from Westfield Group for a 765kW array at Westfield’s flagship Century City mall in Los Angeles.
Construction on the project is slated to begin in early 2013 with the project consisting of three rooftop arrays and a series of shade canopies. The rooftop projects will be built on top of spaces that currently house a movie theatre, restaurant and common areas. The shade canopies will be implemented as part of a new construction process, including a four-storey parking structure.
Alta Energy, a solar analytics and procurement company, served as project coordinator for the project.
This contract follows Martifer Solar’s combined 1.7MW installation at Westfield’s Topanga and Fashion Square shopping malls in 2011.
