New Tower Erection

With the Vigo County Courthouse dome visible in the picture, you know this project is in the middle of Terre Haute, Indiana.  Norman Tower Service met the challenge of center city construction to upgrade a public service radio system.
By pre-assembling antennas to the top sections of the tower before hoisting, work, time and money are saved, and the install can be inspected on the ground before hoisting.
The legs and cross-bracing of the lower sections of this tower are shipped unassembled by the tower manufacturer to save freight.  They are bolted together at the erection site.  The upper sections are of all-welded construction and are being hoisted into place in this picture.
While the crane was on location for erecting the new tower, it was used to remove the old tower from the roof of the public safety building, thus saving crane charges and rigging expense for the owner. Norman Tower Service can do quality tower work in the middle of a cornfield or in the middle of a city. Start your next tower project with a call to Norman Tower Service.

This pre-assembled "rebar cage" assembly of concrete reinforcing rod, is being lowered into a bored hole for a tower footing, in preparation for placing the concrete for the footing. The tower leg anchor bolts have been fastened to a steel plate to hold them precisely in place for the concrete pour.  This perfect alignment is critical so that the manufactured tower leg flange will fit exactly.
The tower steel parts arrive from the factory "knocked down", in individual pieces.  The legs and cross-braces are first assembled into sections.  Now they are hoisted into place for final tower assembly.
The completed piers for the triangular (3 legs) self-supporting tower are in place.  As soon as the concrete "cures" to full strength, the tower steel can be "stacked" (erected).
