With increasing demand on the networks, there is a continual need to upgrade equipment for the Operators. For equipment on a mast, this means that the loading on the structure is increased. As such, it requires a detailed analysis or “Global Design Check” to ensure that the additional equipment does not overload the structure.
At Shire Consulting, we have tower climbing teams that are experienced in surveying masts and towers in intricate detail. Once the site team have completed their survey work, the structure can then be modelled using our various CAD programs and then analysed by our Structural Engineers, in accordance with British Standards including BS 8100. With all of these services as part of our in-house team, we can provide a service that is seamless, efficient and comprehensive.
