Suffolk County Water Authority, Elevated Water Tank Structural Review for Telecommunication Antenna Installations

Posted on July 25, 2015

Client: Suffolk County Water Authority
Location: Oakdale, NY
Project Type: Elevated Water Tank Structural Review for Telecommunication Antenna Installations
D&B Project Manager: Christopher W. Francis

Project Description

D&B provided engineering services for structural review of telecommunication equipment on various Elevated Water Storage Tanks in Suffolk County, New York. D&B reviewed installation drawings prepared by architects and engineers working on behalf of the major cell carriers in the NY market. D&B used their intimate knowledge of cell design to provide innovative solutions to SCWA. In some cases, new details were provided for support systems of the existing cellular carriers as well as coordination of the recommended retrofit work.

A full structural evaluation was prepared prior to each carrier’s proposed design being accepted. D&B had created for SCWA a library of approved mounting methods that has become the standard for telecom installations on water tanks on Long Island.

D&B also provided inspection services during installation. This was done to maintain open maintenance access on ladders and balconies, alleviate possible tripping hazards and ultimately provide a clean looking installation that does not compromise the primary purpose of the water tank.
