Telecommunications Engineering

We’ve been providing comprehensive and high-quality engineering services to the telecommunications industry since our inception. Since 2002, we have worked with and become an approved vendor for the majority of major U.S. based cellular carriers, tower holding companies as well as their subsidiaries.

We specialize in raw-land developments, co-locations, water tower and rooftop installations, visually concealed sites, DAS installations, and Small Cell designs. We have the expertise and experience to assist in the early stages of candidate selection and site auditing; can follow through with regulatory compliance and plan preparation; and can close out the site with a final inspection and hand off to operations. Our one-stop-shop ensures high quality cost effective solutions and personalized outstanding service.

Unlike our competition, we offer a complete line of in-house services. We assist you through every step of the project development process. This unique arrangement gives you a single point of contact – someone who has the necessary supportive expertise readily available to handle all aspects of your project.
