Boston Center for the Arts

Boston, MA

  • Timberline installed a full six-sector Metro site on a roof top

  • The equipment pad was set at street level in a back alley with a new concrete pad and fence enclosure.

  • The site spanned two different buildings and multiple antenna heights.

  • A 60’ Telco  run to Demarcation point in one building, while a 75’ power and grounding run with sub meter and disconnect tied to a different existing building panel.

  • The RF Cable run was a 50' vertical rise; two lines ran to six different sectors and ranged in lengths from 85’ to 270’ over the roof of the two buildings. 

  • Antennas were faced mounted and painted to match the existing exterior of the building at the direction of the BRA.

AT&T LTE Upgrade

Seaver Street, Dorchester, MA

  • Working with SAI Communications, Timberline completed a LTE upgrade for AT&T

  • The BRA of Boston would only approve the upgrade if the entire existing and new portion of the site was reconfigured and put inside a stealth enclosure.

  • The team coordinated with the stealth company, Boston Police detail for street lane closure, and Crane company to lift steel frame to roof.

  • The site had to be shut down to be moved out of the way for the new steel sub-frame installation and then shut down again once it was all installed on the new frame and old mounts removed from the roof with another crane.

  • A building specified roofer was used to close in roof penetrations for steel frame during install

Multiple Carrier Equipment Relocation

519 Albany Street, Boston, MA

  • During renovations of the building, Timberline relocated all power and ground wire for all wireless carriers from outside of the building to a new shaft  within the building.

  • Clients for this project included Sprint/Nextel, AT&T, and T-Mobile.

  • In addition to equipment relocation, Timberline built a new 10x30 shelter within the building for Sprint/Nextel and relocated their lines and equipment from an existing exterior monopole to a new room located inside the building.

  • A custom made dog house was also constructed to accommodate 32 runs of coax cable from the roof. TCC also ran new coax cable for AT&T to the newly constructed shaft within the building. All work for this project was coordinated and built using union labor.

The Davis Companies

Rustcraft Road, Dedham, MA

  • To make way for a tenant fit-out for General Dynamics, the building owner, The Davis Company, hired Timberline to dismantle an existing T-Mobile site and clock tower in the space and relocate it to another part of the building.

  • The schedule for the tenant fit-out required that the site be dismantled quickly, before the new tower could be constructed.

  • To accommodate the schedule, Timberline built a temporary tower (COW) to maintain call traffic, then demolished the old site and returned equipment to T-Mobile.

  • Timberline then began construction on the new tower, which involved installing the foundation, erecting the steel and preparing the tower for operation.

Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center

Boston, MA

  • Timberline built a new 10x20 shelter on the rooftop of the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center directly above one of Fidelity's sound studios.

  • Our team installed 12 new coax cable runs to three different sectors with over 1500 feet of cable tray.

  • Some runs were up to 780 feet from the shelter over multiple roofs to the outer limits of the building.

  • All work for this project was coordinated and built using union labor.

  • At the time it was one of the biggest build-outs of a rooftop in the Boston area.
