Strengthening guyed towers for the Coast Guard

This project consisted in strengthening the foundations of 3 tall guyed towers located on 3 different sites. We also had a mandate to make the structural analysis of towers in order to ensure that the structural members in the tower were in line to use the new telecommunications equipment to be set up. Since two of the three sites were located in remote areas, we had to use techniques of simple and easily achievable by strengthening regional entrepreneurs. Soil samples have been taken and analyzed on different sites to help you adapt our methods to building made specific to each site.
The main challenge was to identify and implement methods to allow building towers in office for the duration of the excavation of each anchor guy wires and proceed to massive strengthening of the latter.
