BUILDING COMMUNICATION FROM THE GROUND UP
BIGSKY Tower Systems manufactures a patent pending, modular tower system. Cost-effectively and safely built at ground level, the system eliminates tower climbing during the construction process. The above ground system rapidly deploys without the need for heavy equipment during construction on varying terrain, in any climate, and during any season.
As of November 3rd of 2017 the CSA S37-17 Standard Compliancy Report is available:
When deploying a BIGSKY Tower System in Canada, especially for Telecommunications purposes, the project manager may need to consider one or more of the following rules and standards with various authorities:
- Canadian Municipalities and the Regulation of Radio Antennae and their Support Structures
- CPC-2-0-03 – Radio communication and Broadcasting Antenna Systems
- Aeronautics Act (R.S., 1985, c. A-2)
- Transport Canada
- Part VI – General Operating and Flight Rules
- Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) 2017-2
- Standard 621 – Obstruction Marking and Lighting
- Ontario’s clause 2.1.2. For communication towers of 16.6 meters in height or greater
- CSA S37-13 Antennas, Towers and Antenna-Supporting Structures
- CSA S136-12 North American Specification for the design of cold formed steel members
This is not an exhaustive list and is intended to be helpful to ensuring projects involving BIGSKY Tower Systems are fully compliant with land use and other important authorities.
