Tower & Foundation Mapping

Qualifying sites for either expansion or enhancement is critical in the deployment of wireless services. Waterford is proud to introduce its comprehensive Structural & Appurtenance Mapping ("SAM") service to firms addressing a tower site's modification or colocation potential.

Each year, thousands of existing towers either require co-location by a host of carriers and/or tower owners. The need for accurate and reliable data as it relates to a tower’s proposed equipment loading and interference potential is paramount and of critical importance to the evaluation process. Unfortunately, in many cases, this data may not be accurate or is neither readily nor easily attainable. Many of these towers may be “older” and predate the existence of any reliable or accurate data on file, the towers may have been subjected to various acquisitions or structural mod activities and related data is not available or trustworthy, or past co-location data may not be have been updated. Waterford's SAM service accelerates this process in a professional, efficient, and cost effective manner.

Waterford will complete the SAM reports using either our own in-house template, or the information can be formatted to fit within a client’s template as needed. The end result is a detailed and comprehensive report conveying all of the necessary information needed to complete structural, inventory or intermodulation analysis on the tower or update the site records as requested.
