Although we are used to traveling wherever our clients need us to, sometimes we find ourselves with a major project in our own backyard. SC was contacted to take the reigns on a project surrounding an over stressed tower facing some major constraints:
Location was zoned in a manner that would not allow for a full tower replacement
Space restrictions on site would require specialty drilling rigs to properly install new foundations
Existing carriers on tower needed to have limited down time
Reinforcement design must not exceed current tower footprint
Our team was tasked with designing and overseeing the construction of a solution to resolve the extreme stress and twist this tower was seeing under relatively low wind speeds. We used every department in our company from initial inspection and design to fabrication/procurement and construction in order to complete this project under tight deadlines and minimize down time to current carriers on tower. In addition to successfully reinforcing the tower and returning all carriers to service, our staff was able to increase the reserve capacity of the tower for at least two future carriers. We pride ourselves on being a complete and singular resource for our clients regardless of project size or scope.

Typical packages may include original Modification Drawings, Structural Analysis Documentation, Before & After Photos of work performed and Drone video or photography. Structural Components strives to create complete close out packages that allow our clients to trust the quality of work performed on their many assets across the United States
