Carriers are now deploying antennas in more locations as the customer’s demand for data increases. Rooftop collocation is becoming a very attractive alternative to traditional tower collocation due to the need for real estate in high traffic areas. Carpenter & Cross’s experience in building design along with our knowledge of telecommunications equipment and antenna mounting procedures, makes us a perfect partner for your rooftop installation. As times change and rooftop installations become larger, heavier, and more critical to the network, rely on our experience to help keep carriers and landlords at ease.
Our years of experience allow us the ability to analyze a proposed or existing rooftop installation in a number of ways in an expedient and cost-effective manner. We can analyze a localized portion of a rooftop or an entire roof. Our team has experience in the analysis and design of both penetrating (pitch-pocket) and non-penetrating (ballast) systems. Our building expertise will allow for the optimum placement of equipment for both the structure and the carrier.
“Engineering is not merely knowing and being knowledgeable, like a walking encyclopedia; engineering is not merely analysis; engineering is not merely the possession of the capacity to get elegant solutions to non-existent engineering problems; engineering is practicing the art of the organized forcing of technological change … Engineers operate at the interface between science and society.”
