Efficient Urban Installation: AFS 400 Foundation for Crown Castle

Crown Castle hired on ARE Telecom to install our AFS 400 to support communication antennas.


The need

ARE Telecom was contracted by Crown Castle to design, manufacture and install our AFS 400 ballasted foundation system and tilt-up/self-raising monopole to support communication antennas for a temporary installation in Santa Rosa, California.


ARE Telecom designed a pole for Crown Castle requirements and matched it with our AFS 400 foundation system. The small footprint of the AFS 400 helped in the permitting process for an installation in a small urban parking lot. The foundation and pole were off-loaded and installed in 20 man-hours. The self raising pole made it possible for the antennas to be installed on the ground and be erected without the use of a crane.

Project Benchmarks

  • Crew flexibility and equipment availability allowing for fast installation on short notice

  • Antennas installed on ground level eliminating the need to climb

Project Resources

  • 2-man crew

  • 1-day assembly

  • Skid-steer

  • Local aggregate base used for ballast


  • Limited space and access

  • Significant logistics coordination due to offloading, storage, and work space limitations

  • Quick install
