When more than one wireless carrier makes use of the same cell phone tower, a co-location survey must be performed by a licensed land surveyor. With many years of experience in co-location tower site surveys, Point to Point Land Surveyors, Inc. delivers reliable, accurate survey results for your co-location project, on time and within budget.
Why Is This Type Of Survey Needed?
With the vast expansion of wireless communications over the years, more and more telecommunications companies are attempting to expand their service area for their customers. Because only so much space is available for cell phone towers, in many cases two or more carriers will make an agreement with land owners to utilize the same tower (known as “co-location”). This makes easements, accessibility and lease agreements more complex because multiple entities must have access to the land. Co-location tower site surveys are designed to account for these complex issues. In addition to standard boundary and land surveys, the surveyor will provide details as to access, elevation, structure and easements for the benefit of all interested parties while satisfying the requirements of local, state and federal agencies regarding the placement and construction of the cellular tower.
When Do You Need A Co-Location Tower Site Survey?
In addition to the standard array of surveys associated with cell tower construction, a co-location tower site survey will be needed in the following situations:
- If are leasing your land for a proposed cellular tower to be used by two or more companies
- If there is an existing tower in use on your property, and another wireless carrier approaches you about sharing the space
Due to the legalities and complexities involved with cellular towers and co-location, co-location tower site surveys should only be performed by an experienced licensed professional.
