Telecommunications & Broadcast Services

Our experienced Civil, Structural, Electrical Engineers and Architects have worked very closely with utility & power companies to determine the structural capacity of transmission towers, poles and their failures. By performing load and stress analysis to meet latest codes and industry standards, our structural teams were able to upgrade or add additional new lines/loads to a number of existing transmission mast and pole structures. STRUCTEL Inspection and Maintenance crew collects as-built data on existing poles lines and structures, which transforms to In house Professional Engineers. Structural analysis and fact-findings enable us to upgrade, repair and replace existing wood, steel or concrete structures to meet client specifications.

COMMUNICATION AND BROADCAST TOWERS – Structural Engineer responsible for design of over thousands Antenna/dish supporting systems and masts structures including Self supporting, Guyed and Monopole towers up to 2000 feet high.  Designed and managed all technical activities of estimating, drafting, manufacturing, inspection and production.  Furnished structural analysis and design and foundation for thousands of various projects around the world.  Provided technical supports for Mechanical, electrical engineering staff, sales and field engineer’s personnel.
 

We have provided engineering analysis and design modifications of existing masts structures requiring additional loading such as new microwave dish or antenna installations and associated coax lines, to meet the latest Electronic Industries Association and Telecommunication Industry Associations (TIA/EIA) standards.  This also required analysis of reinforced concrete drilled pier foundations, mat, spread, and gravity footings.  Other analysis included lock anchor supports, and special anchor shafts for masts and guyed towers.

Our expertise and track record in the fields of telecommunications have created tremendous opportunities for our firm both in North America and International Arena. Numerous companies (Private & Government Entities) use our services. The recent project types in the telecommunication fields are as follow:

Monopoles, Self-Support and Guyed Towers

 

We offer structural and architectural services for existing and new towers. Our staff will do a thorough analysis of tower structure to ascertain the safety and load capacity of the structure including dead, wind and ice loads. Building a tower just for your today’s application may be beneficial in the short run; however, in the long run it creates challenges. At Structel, we design for today & future. For the existing communication sites, in the absence of required specifications, we will begin by an initial field visit followed by development of as-constructed drawings, and subsequent field verification if required. 

Depending on your requirements, we will recommend various forms of structures for your foundation & tower by evaluating key materials such as tubular steel, solid steel, and welded sections.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inspection and Maintenance
Telecommunication, Transmission and Broadcast Towers Buildings & Other Structures

 

In addition to structural engineering services for telecommunication, transmission and broadcast towers, we offer inspection, maintenance and forensic engineering. Our core experience in structural and foundation design has given us the uniqueness over other companies that only offer maintenance.   

Structel and its partners have a number of experienced crew to respond to your needs. Our mobile and flexible maintenance crews have given us the ability to service your tower sites in different regions. We fully adhere to the OSHA, EIA/TIA and EPA Standards.

 Our staff will perform a thorough inspection of overall tower condition and its surroundings. This includes an assessment of the entire site including tower structure, foundation, footings, tower alignment, antenna, grounding, electrical, painting, galvanizing, coating, lighting, building and fixing or re-tensioning guy wires.

Depending on our clients’ expectations, at the minimum, a detailed inspection report along with a journal of photographs will be issued and supplied to them at the end of each site visit. Immediately following the inspection, any problem found will be brought to the attention of our Client.

We provide special annual preventive maintenance programs to suit your requirements and expectations.

 

 

Roof Tops and Water Tank Towers

To date, we have fulfilled our customers’ specific requirements by providing custom-designed offerings for Water Tank Towers and Roof Tops. All of our design and analysis fully complies with ANSI/EIA/TIA-222-F 1996 Standards or latest revisions.

For the Roof Top Towers and Water Tank Towers, the antenna arrangement and their functional support on the tower structure are important elements of the visual impressions. Our architects and structural engineers pay special attention to these elements and analyze various possible antenna configurations for both collocate and new applications.
 

 


 

Electrical Transmission Structures

 

Our experienced Civil, Structural, Electrical Engineers and Architects have worked very closely with utility & power companies to determine the Structural Capacity of Transmission towers and poles. By performing load and stress analysis to meet latest Codes and Industry Standards, our Structural Teams were able to upgrade or add additional new lines/loads to a number of existing transmission mast and pole structures. STRUCTEL Inspection and Maintenance crew collects as-built data on existing poles lines and structures, which transforms to PLSCADD-AutoCAD by our In house Professional Engineers. Use of PLSCADD, PLS-Pole enables us to upgrade, repair and replace existing wood, steel or concrete structures to meet client specifications.
