The Structural Engineer I performs structural analysis of low complexity on existing communication structures (including guyed, self-supporting, monopoles, mounts, rigging plans, rooftops, platform designs, site compounds and their foundations). They will prepare formal, written reports detailing structural capacity and recommendations for modifications needs to increase capacity. The Structural Engineer I supports more experienced engineers in the analysis of more complex structures and in the design of modifications to existing telecommunications infrastructure. They will also assist in the review of field inspections on non-complex towers and will work with the experienced engineer to recommend remediation requirements for less complicated issues.
