Continental Wireless can provide architectural and engineering (A&E) design services for communications sites. We have experience with raw land sites, existing towers, utility poles, water tanks and rooftop design. We understand the importance implementing a design that is compliant with regulatory codes, industry standards and FAA/FCC regulations.
Identifying the “RIGHT SITE” requires a thorough understanding of the process beginning with zoning, subdivision and site plan as well as permitting. We help our clients by employing a systematic process of site evaluation. The purpose of this evaluation process is to define the critical path and potential obstacles to quickly determine if the site is practical to pursue.
We can complete a detailed study of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), county and local maps for a specified search ring and identify potential sites based on ground elevations and accessibility. We determine all controlling jurisdictions/entities and gather information to establish zoning contact, allowed uses and zoning time-frames. Our team will drive or walk each potential site to confirm map observations and visit local tax assessor offices to identify ownership along with zoning ordinances. We develop and recommend a zoning approval strategy to be submitted as a zoning analysis report.
Negotiating the “RIGHT SITE” requires the experience to simplify the process. We can provide lease exhibits that document site specific attributes (i.e. antenna locations, telco and power service entrance, coax routes, equipment specifications, site layout, the point of connection for the dry utilities, etc.) to communicate with site owners and structure a deal memo.
