We are confident that our extensive database, software tools, technology, and services will help solve some of the industry challenges, mainly in the structural analysis and modifications field, the accumulation/retention of the generated structural models with the current loading, and the immediate availability of the data to the customer's entire enterprise for further analysis and management support.
Full commitment to the highest levels of Engineering Quality. All work is done in full compliance with the latest adopted ANSI/EIA/TIA standards. Able to adjust software rapidly to changing standards (EIA/TIA F vs G, Imperial units vs Metric, Brazilian NBR, and Mexico's 2008 C.F.E).

We are confident that our extensive database, software tools, technology, and services will help solve some of the industry challenges, mainly in the structural analysis and modifications field, the accumulation/retention of the generated structural models with the current loading, and the immediate avilability of the data to the customer's entire enterprise for further analysis and management support.
There are many features that make the Link-Plates attractive. Foremost is the cycle time for mod completion. We have completed turn-key Link-Plate modifications on numerous sites with an average cycle time from award to close-out of 30 days. In most cases product is shipping within 3 to 5 days from receipt of PO.
As carriers upgrade to 4G, LTE, and eventually 5G, larger antennas and radios will need to be installed on the existing mounts and we know that most existing mounts were not designed to support the increase in weight and wind force. Carriers are being taxed with having the mounts analyzed prior to installing the new antennas. We have integrated the mount analysis tool into our proprietary tower/pole analysis modules and the mount is analyzed at the same time the tower is.
With a turnaround time second to none, we credit our efficiency to our proprietary state of the art software. The software was developed internally during the past years, within a framework designed to expand into many management modules. It is a full-fledged Microsoft SQL Server based database designed to store and query large amounts of data inline and online (via our client portal).
The structural model and antenna loading are warehoused and are available for subsequent collocation requests for a greatly reduced fee, and an even faster turnaround time. Also, the model and the associated antenna data are available to the tower owner enterprise through our online query module.
Remote access and analysis to the accumulated data from the above structural analysis through the Internet. This consists of supplying the tower owner with a query module that allows anyone in that organization to examine, query, and review the structure usage percentages of any of the sites, by multiple criteria. All structural analysis results will also be available online and can be viewed, printed, or emailed. by anyone with sufficient access. Please note that in all cases, the data accumulated int he database is the tower owner property, but will be administered by TES to ensure its consistency, and safeguard our liability.
In order to comply with EIA/TIA-222-F/G Standards, poles and towers are required to be climbed and inspected on a periodic basis and inspection reports generated would need to be reviewed b a competent tower structural engineer in order to detect any deficiencies in the actual condition of the structure. Also, the EIA/TIA-222-F/G Standard requires the anchors of guyed towers to be physically inspected for any corrosion that would have occured over the years, depending on the age of tower, soil type, and resistivity.
We developed a state of the art process (scoring system) that addressed this industry wide dilemma once and for all, in a systematic and fail safe way. This unique scoring system was calibrated against real corroded anchors observed in the field. We scored around 8000 towers and modified hundreds of anchors. TES will procure and manage the inspections with the help of the state the art inspections tracker developed specifically for that purpose. Our engineers would then review the reports and assess the condition of the tower and document into the tracker the outcome of the review. If deficiencies are found, we would then generate remediation plans in order to bring the tower back into compliance.
Access to all inspection data and tracker would be available online, if desired.
Again, we credit our efficiency to state of the art software, which we can demonstrate. Our patented monopole modifications and pricing are automated through our software and our patented "link-plate" material is available for shipping within a day or two.
Once we modify a structure within our software, the structural model that resides in our database would reflect that modification in a consistent manner, as opposed to some of the propriety retrofits performed by others that no one else can re-analyze if needed, especially if the other party is no longer in business.
TES will provide all modification drawings as required and upon a failed structural analysis, TES will provide a summary of recommended modifications along with an estimate of the cost modifications.
Our construction management division is responsible for ensuring the tower/pole modification turnkey projects are completed on time, on budget, and most importantly, safely. Our proprietary project management tool provides a portal for all involved parties from steel manufacturers, to installers to log in and report the progress milestones making the project reporting very accurate and live.
Part of our team's responsibilty is to conduct random safety audits to ensure that our crews and contractors are safe and compliant. All audit results are available on our client portal.
Since 1990, Mr. Robert Semaan P.E., S.E., the founder of Tower Engineering Solutions (TES) and Semaan Engineering Solutions (SES), has provided state-of‐the-art structural engineering solutions to over 54,000 towers in the US.
