Antenna Site Surveys
Do you really know what is on your roof? Is it safe, does it present hidden liabilities, risks and exposures that may threaten your investment? Is it what you agreed to when you signed your lease, license agreement or statutory right of way with the cell carrier? Retailers conduct annual inventories and companies both public and private undergo annual audits. It only makes good business sense to retain a consulting firm that knows what it's doing to do the same in respect to your cell site on your roof. An Industry Standard Antenna Site Survey involves our engineers/consultants armed with spectrum analyzers and other test equipment visiting your roof and or site.
We work closely with our Technology Advisory Committee which is the University of British Columbia Radio Sciences Lab http://rsl.ece.ubc.ca We inspect the site and categorize, identify and, if requested, label all antennas, identifying the carrier, measuring the frequency and power levels of each antenna, photographing them and mapping their location. We inspect the installation and report to you on any deficiencies, sloppiness and potential roof membrane damage, wear and tear.
We compare the antennas identified by our inspection and test equipment for each licensee with Industry Canada's Cell Site License Database and report on the license status. If we identify any possible Safety Code 6 issues we will bring this to your attention and suggest what further steps can be taken to deal with this exposure. Where required we also review the local land use authorities' files to determine compliance with municipality permitting requirements.
With this information from our visit to your roof, we take this review one step further and review your agreements, correspondence with each carrier and any other related documentation to determine if what our Site Survey shows, matches what is supposed to be on your roof as set out in your agreements with the cell carriers.
You will receive a detailed written report that provides a site plan identifying all antennas (including pictures) and which carrier is responsible for them, whether they are licensed, the condition of the site and the quality of the installation and any deficiencies or concerns including potential Safety Code 6 issues requiring further investigation and measurement. If we believe further work is necessary, the report will set out these recommendations for your consideration.
