Telecommunications

When you need telecom support, you need fast turnarounds and realistic budgets. Whether the setting is urban or rural, you need partners that understand your needs and how to make things happen.

Kimley-Horn provides comprehensive solutions that exceed the requirements for wireless communications sites on public and private properties, for new tower locations and co-locations, or inventory/assessments.

The Experience You Need

With decades of experience in telecommunications projects, Kimley-Horn is known for workable solutions and outstanding responsiveness. Our site development services include zoning and permitting; surveying; site plans; structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering; environmental; landscape architecture; visualization technology; construction observation; and expert testimony. And our exceptional inspection, audit, and data services can help ensure your database has the latest information about who’s on your tower, with what equipment, and at what locations.

From sensitive historical settings to high density campus environments, Kimley-Horn specializes in the application of distributed antenna systems. On urban roadway settings or sprawling campuses, Kimley-Horn specializes in the application of DAS.  Our campus applications have ranged from the hyper sensitive historical setting of Colonial Williamsburg to the high density of the campus at the University of North Carolina. And we understand fiber-optic infill design like the back of our hand. With our national footprint and local market knowledge, we have the resources to meet your needs in any location.
Some of the nation’s largest tower owners have relied on Kimley-Horn to provide maintenance review of their holdings and to orchestrate crucial information-gathering campaigns prior to major acquisitions. We understand the process and your critical needs. We’ll keep projects on schedule, coordinate with site owners, establish consistent criteria for inspections, and oversee the on-time completion of accurate reports, including site plans, tower drawings, and shelter maps. And when you need local data collection from multiple states, we’ll pull together a team from our 60+ offices to get the job done–on time and on budget.
