Quick Installation on Wenatchee Mountains

Crown Castle was in need of a 24 m self-raising pole to support communication AT&T antennas on a remote mountain top.


The need

ARE Telecom was contracted by Crown Castle to design, manufacture, and install our AFS ballasted foundation system and tilt-up/self-raising monopole to support communication AT&T antennas on a remote mountain top in the Wenatchee Mountains.


ARE designed the pole and matched it with our AFS 1300 foundation system. The site location was difficult to access and relied on a rarely used US forestry road. All components were transported by small truck or telehandler. Although bad weather made the mountain pass and path icy and overall installation difficult, foundation and pole were off-loaded and installed within 3 days. The self-raising pole made it possible for the antennas to be installed on the ground and did not require additional equipment or dangerous climbing. This versatile quick install system sits above ground and has a small footprint of 4.5m. It is certified to TIA 222 rev G and used for both permanent or temporary installations.

Project Benchmarks

  • Crew flexibility and equipment availability allowing for installation under challenging conditions
    Tight time constraints

  • Tight footprint without use of crane

Project Resources


  • 3-person crew

  • 3 days

  • Skid-steer

  • Telehandler

  • Limited space and access

  • Significant logistics planning due to remote site in an isolated mountain range

  • Quickly and efficiently deployed over 3 days
