Technical Services

Our national technical services team covers all aspects of network construction from configuration upgrades to full turnkey site installations. Having completed thousands of installations across Canada since the company’s inception, WesTower has the capacity and track record to make your project a flawless experience.

Maintaining Essential Telecommunications Infrastructure

We’re ready for any maintenance or repair issue, at any site, in any weather. Our technicians are fully equipped with installation, rigging, and testing equipment and can access your site in any condition. WesTower HSE policies also meet or exceed the Canadian Labour Code.

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.

Site Upgrades & Modifications

WesTower’s national presence, customer service-focused delivery, and robust safety program ensures that upgrades will be handled smoothly and professionally, completed on time, and meet CSA (Canadian Standards Association) specifications.  Whether you are upgrading a single wireless site, entire market, or national program, our suite of upgrade and modifications can include:

 

  • Foundation modifications
  • A&E services

  • Rooftop and in-build modifications
  • Equipment and adjunct supporting site additions and modifications (power, backhaul, lines, cabinets, HVAC, etc.)
