Monopine Tower New Sector and Antenna Installation

Case Study:

How to Save 2X on Equipment and Crew Time Needed for a Monopine Tower Antenna Installation

What was the challenge?

A global provider of turnkey telecom site development was contracted to install new antennas for a federally-licensed carrier on a New Jersey monopine tower. The provider required quick and efficient project completion because the acceleration of the transition to 5G gave them the opportunity to take on more projects.

With increased market demand, the telecom provider sought new efficiencies to complete more projects without hiring additional staff.

Typically, this job requires at least four people, plus crane and manlift rentals: JLG or similar manlifts cannot be used to hoist antennas, sectors, or pine towers’ artificial branches.

A crane would only be needed for a couple of hours to lift the assembled sector, yet its rental requires at least two days. Besides crane and lift operators, more personnel would be needed to assemble the naked sector on the ground and complete the installation.

A referral was made to Alpha Platforms because we’d completed several telecom site jobs in this area, quickly and for less.

What was the outcome?

The project was completed in just two days, including antenna mounts installation, 3 sectors, 9 antennas and all cables setup, installation, and connection.

The client reduced equipment and personnel costs by renting only one boom lift and employing just two technicians for this project.

On Day 1, the work lasted from 8 am to 6 pm: quickly removed pine branches, installed antenna mounts, naked sector, and some assembled antenna mounts with radios. And on Day 2, from 8 am to 4 pm, the rest of the antennas, radios, and cables were installed.

Excellent service, arriving on time every day, responsible with the load limit, very attentive to the lubrication and controls of the crane.

Ryan Hughes

I had an emergency project on a 140' high voltage tower and needed Alpha Platforms next day. They were so helpful and expedient walking me through the entire process so I was comfortable with the deal. They showed up to my site next day and cut about 2 days off of the project due to the safety, speed and efficiency of their lift and operators. I'll never rent or hire another lift company. I would recommend Alpha platforms for all your high reach needs.

Elizabeth Radlbeck

Jon told me that it was a pleasure to work with Alpha Platforms, the crew was skilled and helpful, the equipment was top notch. Our installers appreciated the security of the platform vs working off of a swing stage, it made their job easier and more efficient. From first meeting thru to the end of the work day everything ran as smoothly as it could. City Sign Service, Inc. will definitely be partnering with Alpha Platforms on future projects

Byron Nivelo

We had an exceptional experience with Alpha! They are professionals, great operator team. Overall reliable, recommended will certainly return for my future needs hands down.

Nick Muhlon

My company used alpha lifts to clean a 14 floor building and they were great. Very accommodating, always on time, and will work with you to get the job done safe and sound. The lifts they provide are state of the art and can pretty much reach any low rise building under 250 feet. I’d recommend them to anyone doing window cleaning or facade cleaning, or anything king of height access work!

We wanted to give it a try and see what this boom truck could do. We loved the idea of a wide basket that could reach up to 30 feet and get to the brick wall over the roof. The main reason we loved the truck was how it maneuvered the boom to lower the bricks inside a dumpster, which was located behind the truck. It saved us at least one extra day of work. It all went great.

The project was performed successfully, and we were really glad to have contactless means of reaching the building, as we all know that pipe scaffold might damage the structure, in this case, very very sensitive.

Alpha has the most efficient and leanest site setup time I’ve ever seen. My brother, who is the top climber of our group, first struggled to understand how this cage could go around the tower better than the crane - and when it did the whole 360°, he became a believer. Also, each laborer said how incredibly safe they felt - very different from the small crane basket. We were able to secure and push back the panels in place without the basket ever moving.

Justin N.
President

That is a fine piece of equipment! And the competent, professional group that goes along with it is just the cherry on top. I really appreciate everything. I'm sure we'll be able to use Alpha again in the future as we get these opportunities. In fact, it will only help our business knowing we have a safe, reliable solution to these over 50‘ height challenges.
