53' TOWER EXTENSTION
On the island of Martha’s Vineyard, a critical communication link had been obstructed over time. The
trees on the island had grown up in height since the original construction of the tower and antennas and
were impeding the path to the mainland. Structural Components designed, fabricated and installed a
custom 53ft tower extension along with an extensive reinforcement to support the increase in loading.
Initial inspection, tower and foundation mapping completed to determine existing baseline capacity.
Steel samples taken from existing legs to determine material properties and complete an accurate analysis.
Reinforced majority of existing tower legs and members to support additional tower height
Completed all work while maintaining at least one dish path.
As part of the work all rust from the existing tower was removed and the entire original structure was cold-galvanized.
