Telecommunication Infrastructure Design

Cell sites are essential elements in communication networks. We have been at the forefront of wireless site designs for all mobile phone operators in Canada since inception of the wireless industry with the release of frequency spectrum by Industry Canada in 1985.


WSP has been providing telecommunication infrastructure design services to Canadian cable companies, public utilities, airport authorities and all major telecom operators since 1974. We offer solutions for tower and rooftop site requirements for new wireless network deployments and network upgrades as well as for distributed antenna and in-building systems.

We are a leader in tower design services. Our expertise encompasses all types of communication tower structures and includes site measure-ups, structural design, structural feasibility assessments and reports, construction, reinforcing and/or as-built drawings, pre and post inspections and maintenance inspections for mobile, transport, broadcast and other radio networks. We have a particularly strong skillset in tower reinforcement design and detailing that allows us to deliver solutions to extend tower service life and reduce reconstruction costs and service delays. For year-round work especially in colder climates, we have developed methods that extend the service life of towers and reduce ice build-up. We are also proud to be a member of the CSA S37 Antenna Support Structures Technical Committee and involved with the TIA/EIA 222-G American Technical Committee.

We offer full civil infrastructure services, including structural, electrical and mechanical engineering services, for rooftop wireless site design and modifications. Our experienced buildings team has expertise with all types of building systems and compositions enabling practical rooftop designs. This expertise is also leveraged for the provision of distributed antenna and in-building system design.

We also offer project and construction management services including vendor and sub-contractor management, materials management and logistics coordination, reporting and tracking.
