Read more details in the Description Tab below.


Krech Ojard & Associates has provided consulting support to Terra Consulting Group on telecommunications attachments and structural analysis of supporting structures.   This collaboration provides detailed and custom designs for cellular antenna installations on water storage units, building facades, towers, and roof top equipment support platforms and frames.

For one of these installations of antenna systems, Terra Consulting selected Krech Ojard Engineers to consult on the addition of cellular antenna module additions to a water tower in Illinois. This water tower is now out of the business of storing and delivering water, however is being utilized as a tower by a number of communication systems and is owned by a tower service company. For this project, Krech Ojard performed engineering services for antenna mounts on both the outside and inside of the water tower’s stem region, new penetrations in a platform for cable throughput, structural analysis of the Tower’s existing structure for the capability to receive additional load, and foundation design for a ground-level equipment enclosure.

Calculations are performed to work out a tower’s existing loads, the new loads, and for variables such as wind loads.  This tower site was one of over seventy tower analysis and mounting design sites in Illinois, Wisconsin and other regions where Krech Ojard Engineers have supported these projects.
