Full-service site development. From the ground up, we do it all.
Our Civil Construction Team is responsible for site preparation, ensuring the location is ready for the new tower. Services include clearing and grading, access road installation, underground utilities, foundations for towers and buildings, shelter and structure installation, grounds fencing and landscaping. No two jobs are the same, but no job is done until it meets our highest standards.
Raw Land and Co-location Services Include:
- Urban and rural site development.
- Clearing, grubbing, tree, and stump removal.
- Storm water protection planning, and implementation.
- Access road construction.
- Underground utility — trenching; duct, fiber, and power installations.
- Foundation work — towers, generators, shelters, fuel tanks, and other outbuildings.
- Temporary and permanent site security fencing.
- Site restoration including permanent soil stabilizations, grading, and landscaping.
Our Focused Environmental Approach
Our team is responsible for ensuring that we maintain sound environmental practice throughout the tower construction process. Our approach minimizes the potential effects of erosion and runoff to preserve the natural watershed.
With our extensive fleet of company-owned machinery and our highly skilled personnel, we’re equipped to handle any size job-quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. From tree clearing and access roads construction to complex excavation and drainage, we can handle all aspects of site preparation.
Tower and Shelter Foundations
We can design and build the optimal foundation system based for your specific tower-loading and subsoil conditions. Whether it is a custom formed foundation for a guy-tower, caissons for a self-support tower, or a pad-and-pier pinned to bedrock, we have the resources ready. Guy tower/anchor foundations are constructed using the highest-quality materials and machinery. Rebar cages can be constructed within 48 hours of the receipt of a foundation design, and concrete pumped to the bottom of the hole if heavy water is encountered. All foundations are brought to the proper elevation with laser precision. Full concrete slump and break tests are furnished with every foundation.
Grounding System Installation
Complete soil resistivity tests done in-house, install grounding systems, and build lightning suppression systems per Motorola’s industry standard R56 grounding specs. And we conduct final system resistance tests to ensure all specifications are met or exceeded.
Underground Utilities & Electrical Services
Our 35+ years of experience means there’s few challenges our installers and full-time, licensed electricians have not encountered. We provide complete service installations, including trenching, duct, conductor terminations, and load-center assembly. Our expertise also extends to new technologies, including hydrogen cell installs. We can also handle the coordination of all inspectors and utility company representatives.
