As a multi-discipline, full-service engineering and construction firm, our comprehensive service offering enables us to not only fulfill each project’s needs, but rise above the expectations of our clients.
Civil Engineering
Our experienced team has extensive knowledge on every facet of cell tower sites. Our civil engineers communicate internally with each department during the life cycle of a project to manage each phase. We believe this sets us apart from our competition and allows our clients to have a single point of contact. This process provides a unique insight and understanding of what it takes to produce accurate and buildable construction documents to bring a project to completion smoothly. We’re able to prepare documents for projects of any level of complexity.
Geotechnical Engineering
Our Geotechnical Division has experience working on projects in multiple industries including wireless, residential, commercial, government, and industrial. Our geotechnical lab is located at our headquarters in Raleigh, NC but our drillers are nationwide. Our geotechnical division works closely with our civil, inspections, and structural departments to ensure cost effective design recommendations for both new sites and modifications to existing sites.
Structural Engineering
Our Structural Division is comprised of some of the brightest structural minds in the telecommunications industry. Our services range from design and analysis to modification design and rigging plans. Our engineers contribute to the development of industry standards through participation in the TIA sub-committees on Loads, Seismic, Wind Turbines, Mount Analysis, Monopole Reinforcement, and others. We believe that being on the forefront of design standards and innovation is important to the development of our engineers and service to our clients.
Engineering Inspections
Our Inspections Division's attention to detail and commitment to quality ensures our team's performance on a wide variety of field services are accurate and on time. We have over 150 certified tower climbers located throughout the U.S. and over 25 AWS QC1 certified weld inspectors on staff. One of our distinguishing qualities is that our engineers climb and inspect towers enabling us to perform any type of inspection or mapping and have the advantage of placing an engineer on site whenever needed.
Plumbing, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering
We have a dedicated group of engineers that provide the highest quality plumbing, mechanical, and electrical engineering services for our clients. This team has serviced commercial buildings, industrial facilities, and telecommunication sites. Additionally, we work extensively in the foodservice industry, assisting both counter service and sit-down restaurants.
