Antenna Dome Lifting Frame

We were retained to provide professional consultation on the risks associated with hoisting a 40’ diameter fiberglass dome and ways to mitigate the risks via special lifting techniques and equipment.   The foam filled fiberglass panels of the dome had been subjected to hail and UV damage over 20 years of service and there were concerns with lack of dome structural integrity during hoisting.

We designed a multi-point lift frame, approved the method of completing  hoist connection points to the dome skin, and provided onsite lift direction during removal of the dome off its foundation.

The dome required removal to allow access to the MAC satellite antenna for critical component replacement and upgrades.
