Shire has been working within the telecommunications industry since 1996, beginning with supporting Orange PCS on the their 2G & 3G roll out and upgrade programme. Since then we have gone on to work with all UK mobile operators in all areas of structural and electrical design. From providing overall project management support through to specialist design advice direct to the operators own design engineers. We can provide design solutions for Macrocell, Microcell and In-build orientated projects.
Telecommunications Design Services
Our teams are highly trained in a wide variety of project management skills. Dedicated Project Managers are allocated to each project to ensure they are completed on time, in full, using the best resources & skills for that project.
The team at Shire Consulting can provide specialised design services right where they are needed – on site. At initial Multi-Skilled Visits (MSV’s), a qualified structural engineer and electrical engineer can attend site, to ensure that the client walks away with a workable design solution.
Site Audits / Feasibility Study
Our in-house Geotechnical resources give us speedy access to soils information so that appropriate foundation solutions can be designed for every application. Our trained climbing teams & expert surveyors enable us to access sites (rooftop and mast environments) that are beyond the reach of other Design Consultants. We regularly carry out site audits on behalf of various clients and provide comprehensive feasibility surveys and reports.
Visual Communication Services
We actively provide in house training for all our CAD technicians creating a strong core design team that are able to work on various types of design projects for the multiple sectors we serve. This experience is invaluable when working on telecommunications projects which require a wide range of detailing skills - whether it’s steelwork, concrete detailing, 3D modelling or very complex electrical designs as well as general arrangement and as built drawings.
The correct electrical solution for each site is critical. Operators need site running 24/7, with no unplanned interruptions. Provision of power, battery backup and cooling systems are all necessary to maintain each site without disruption.
Civil & Structural Design
Telecoms operators must have networks that are reliable. The maintenance of the network infrastructure is important both to the client and to the end users.
