Structure Analysis

As part of the ongoing network modernization and consolidation between network operators, more and more antenna mounting structures are being asked to carry greater loads than they were originally designed and fabricated to support.

Whilst in many cases structures such as towers and monopoles may have sufficient redundant capacity to allow for additional loads to be applied to them, many structures erected over the past 10 years were designed with a specific antenna load and slimline appearance in mind. This can lead to overloading  and structures not being able to maintain their deflection performance within network operators design criteria.

Performant’s Engineers are able to carry out detailed analysis of both structures and their supporting foundations to ensure that structures are able to adequately support the loads proposed. Where required, Performant can also provide structure and or foundation strengthening schemes that could extend the capacity of an existing structure rather requiring replacement.
