Historically Sensitive Site: Crown Castle's Communication Antenna Project

Crown Castle was in need of instillation of communication antennas in a historically sensitive site.


The need

Crown Castle needed to install communication antenna on a 27 m pole in a historically sensitive site. In addition, the site had a small footprint and accessible only over a wooden bridge with a maximum weight of 8 tons. ARE’s foundation and pole system also needed to meet local requirements for aesthetics and paint color.


Thanks to its Hydraulic System, ARE’s AFS 1300 system can be installed without a crane, in tight spaces, and with limited impact on the environment. Foundation and pole pieces were ferried across the bridge and assembled on site. ARE’s crew installed the system in a 3 days which included OSHA approved railings and ladder, demonstrating ARE’s ability to customize our systems to meet nearly any customer needs.
