Division of State Architecht (DSA) Approved Structures:

MBarC Construction offers a growing catalog  of DSA- approved structures. Our SMART Canopy line up was designed to meet the increasing needs from the school districts and their shade requirements. From solar canopies, steel shade structures and fabric shade structures, our DSA approved structures can  be used for providing shade or a combination of shade and solar electricity.

With several DSA approved structures options available (click each to see specifications):

  1. Solar Carports Canopies: T structures and semi cantilever structures for parking lots and fields
  2. Versa Canopy: Versatile usage ranging from lunch shelters, walkway covers, bus/drop off shelters, dugout covers
  3. Multi-Purpose Canopy: For outside gymnasiums, arenas
  4. Fabric Shade Canopies: Steel columns with fabric to shield students from harmful effects of the sun

Our DSA-approved all-steel shade structures are designed specifically to meet the needs of California schools.

Available in sizes from 400 to 10,000 square feet and will meet the seismic, soils, and wind load requirements of almost any California School. In cases of extreme seismic, wind, or snow loads, a custom structure can be engineered to meet the DSA’s requirements.

Shade structures are at their most efficient when used in 9’ X 9’ Modules.  The 9’ X 9’ module will accommodate a standard school table including access. For example, 44’ X 18’ Smart Canopy is made up of 10 9’ X 9’ modules and so will comfortably cover 10 standard lunch tables. Each table will seat 6-10 students depending on grade level. Thus, a 44’ X 18’ shade structure will cover 60-100 students.

All-steel construction means big savings on maintenance. Steel shelters are vandal proof and are built using decking and trim with a baked enamel finish, galvanized framing and hardware, and tube steel columns.

M Bar C’s years of experience with the DSA mean jobs go smoothly and are completed on time with the documentation required to close them out. M Bar C’s focus on customer service and value means the best value in permanent shade.
