Ramaker was responsible for the complete design, construction plan, and specification development for a new 12-tower WiMAX broadband network and custom designed equipment shelters for the City of Eau Claire, on behalf of CESA 10, under a grant issued by the NTIA/BTOP program. The project also required coordination with Eau Claire County and Chippewa County and included installation of narrowband equipment for their emergency services. Included in the 12-tower project were self-support towers, monopoles, and existing water towers, including a mini-monopole pod-mounted on a pedisphere water tower. Additional services included topographic field surveys, geotechnical analyses, FAA & FCC filings, and bidding and construction management services. Approximate construction costs were $2,900,000.
