Skyscraper Broadcast Monopole Restoration
In the summer of 2010, Aero Solutions installed carbon fiber wrap and 145’ of grout reinforcement to this monopole in Honolulu, HI, located on top of an office and residential building in downtown Honolulu. Aero not only reinforced the existing monopole but provided technical and engineering support. We installed all the transmitting equipment and new antennas for this local television station. This project logistically had a large amount of moving parts and different factors to consider throughout. Most notable were the 26 helicopter lifts consisting of 800 lbs of grout for each lift, to the roof of the building, all being completed within 48 minutes. While respecting the environment, the surrounding city and adhering by the highest safety standards, Aero successfully reinforced and installed all new antennas and transmitting equipment.
