Inspections & Maintenance
WesTower’s inspection and maintenance program promotes the long-term sustainability and asset value of our customer’s infrastructure. WesTower has been inspecting towers since its inception in 1989 and we’ve grown the program because it’s one of the cornerstones of what we do. The program now focuses on proactive maintenance of all telecommunications sites including in-built, small cell, rooftop, shelter, and all tower types. Our conscientious inspectors are well-trained in thorough visual (as outlined in the CSA S37-13 code), structural, below or above grade, and tower mapping inspections.
If possible, WesTower completes all repairs on-site during our inspection to eliminate remobilization costs. If time or material limitations prevent a repair, WesTower’s process is to supply a quote to return and complete the work as soon as possible.
During the inspection process, quick access to reporting provides our clients the necessary assurances to meet industry standards.
