FDH Velocitel has designed, constructed, and deployed over 50,000 wireless sites and over half of the broadcast towers standing in the United States today.
FDH Velocitel’s technical expertise and innovative approach are at the core of its structural design philosophy – one that focuses on fabrication and constructability, economics of construction, and an understanding of project timelines for a broad range of civil and architectural projects.
Drawing on decades of real-world experience working on structures in every conceivable terrain, FDH Velocitel’s structural engineering team specializes in providing quality and timely services for telecommunication towers and related facilities, including concealment structures, water tanks, and rooftops.
All tower analysis and design services adhere to TIA standards as well as federal, state, and local codes and standards. FDH Velocitel is a member of the TIA TR14 Committee, which authors the ANSI/TIA-222 design standard and ANSI/TIA-1019 construction standard for the tower industry. Two of the current subcommittees are chaired by FDH Velocitel employees.
