Baja’s In-House Design Engineers meet Customers Project Specifications and City’s Criteria.
Baja Carports are Engineered Project Specific for Local Live Loads.
Designed to Cover. Engineered for Strength.
Baja Carports, Covered RV & Boat Canopies, and Standard Canopies are designed to ensure compliance with the latest prevailing building code. Necessary plans are furnished with each structure. Engineers registered in your state will certify all plans and calculations.
Baja’s years of design and engineering experience with light gauge, high-tensile, pre-galvanized steel and extensive knowledge of photovoltaic modules are why Baja Construction is called to design, engineer, and install these highly specialized carports nationwide.
Site-Specific Carport Design Criteria
All designs are in strict compliance with the standards requirements set forth by the local Municipality and the American Iron and Steel Institute’s AISI S100 “North American Specifications for the Design of Cold-Formed Steel Structural Members.”
Pre-Engineered Steel Carport & Canopy Structures
Baja Steel Carports & Canopies are project specific, engineered by Baja’s in-house design engineers for local loading requirements. Live loads from 20 psf up to 60 psf, and wind speeds from 90 mph to 160 mph. Special loading requirements can be custom engineered in-house to customer specific conditions.
Bolted connections make for faster on-site installation by Baja Construction teams with no intended field welding. Direct attachment from modules to purlins, with no additional racking or decking required to reduce base of support.
Our objective for all Baja Carport Solar Support Systems™ & Solar Shade Canopies
Baja’s objective for each of its Solar Support Systems™ [support solar panels with a proprietary attachment mainframe] installs is to leverage performance with optimal electric production while maximizing shade coverage for the entire parking lot or the customer’s specific area, i.e. pool, golf course driving range, equipment coverage.
Photovoltaic panels [solar modules] power generated: Based on solar module choice, orientation, layout and location. Baja Construction can accommodate proposed PV layout, improving integration and implementation of solar to canopy structures.

Because Baja Carports are highly customized
We do not sell our engineering drawings to an end user to then install and erect a carport or canopy themselves.
