Rogers Wireless asked TerraCana to help expand their 4G wireless services. To do this, we needed to install a 35 meter tall monopole at the intersection of Westminster Highway and Highway 99.
This foundation needed to ensure long-lasting stability and resilience against weathering. There were many different soil types in this area that needed to be incorporated into the design for a long-term solution. The project site was also at a busy highway intersection that limited site access.
We designed a solution using helical piles and a concrete pile cap that provided a strong, lasting, weather-proof foundation. In the end, our precise placement of helical piles provided high quality work at a better price.
No. of Piles: 10
Pile Type: Small Diameter Helical Pipe Piles – 4.5″ diameter and 0.250″ wall thickness installed to a depth of 45″ to withstand loads of 90 kips in tension and compression.
Application: Communications Tower
