BTS – Built to Suit
Site reactivation/Site Improvement
1. BTS:- This
is the abbreviation of Built to suit, whereby the Telecommunication tower is
built from new/virgin land or area. The TSS (Technical Site Survey) is
conducted to obtain all site information including soil investigation, then the
construction works follows. Best One Limited has done more than 40 BTS sites.
2. Tower Replacement:- By
definition, this means, the construction of new tower at the vicinity of the
old tower in order to replace the old tower to it structural issues. This is
normally done after PCS (Preconstruction Survey) which is done at the old tower
in order to examine its structural stability. When the tower fails
structurally, it’s then termed to be replaced. This scope also covers rooftop
sites, whereby, some of the rooftop poles are supposed to be replaced by another
Poles with larger sizes of rooftop minitowers. Best One has done more than 10
sites of similar scope.
Micropile solution means, tower foundation enhancement solution which uses pile
rods. TSS (Technical Site Survey) is done prior execution in order to know site
and soil conditions. Micropile solution is recommended for poor soil strata.
During implementation, excavation is done to the foundation level, pile holes
are then drilled and pile rods will then be inserted into the drilled holes. The
rods will then enhanced by cement/grout. Currently Best One Limited has done 3
sites of similar scope.
4. Foundation Enhancement:-
This is the method whereby, the foundation of existing tower is enhanced by
using either reinforced concrete, hilti solution or Micropile solution. As well
this is done after TSS. During implementation, foundation excavation will be
done to the tower base where there is existing pile rods. The rebars will then
be fixed through existing pile caps followed by shuttering and concrete
casting. This process increases weight to the tower’s foundation. This
calculated weight will prevent the tower to overturn due to wind effect. Best
One has done more than 20 sites with similar scope.
5. Site Relocation:-By
definition, this is the construction of new site in order to relocated/shift
the existing site due to political or Landlord issues. Site relocations are
mainly done where the existing towers have been constructed to the road
reserves and where Landlords terminates the contracts with tower owner. At
these scenarios, the existing towers (GF/RT) are forced to be relocated/shifted
from one area to another.
6. Rooftop Rectification:-This
is the maintenance/rectification program which has been set by the Client
(Tower Owners) in order to make sure Rooftop Poles/Towers are in a safe
condition throughout. This involve tower/RT Pole maintenance, replacement,
enhancement, strengthening as well as construction of new tower/RT Poles. Best
One has done 18 sites of similar scope.
7. Collocation:- By
definition, collocation means sharing. This is done whereby the tower will be
used by more than one operator. Example, Tigo, Vodacom, Airtel, Halotel and
smile will be made to use single infrastructure (Tower). Normally, all
facilities i.e equipment sleepers, Poles, cable trays, Active equipments and
cables are provided to operators for them to be able to use single
infrastructure (Tower). Best One Limited has been involved to construct such
facilities i.e. Equipment sleepers/slabs, cable trays, cables, rectifiers,
DCDB’s and Installation of MW and GSM poles as part of collation scope.
8. Site Upgrades:-
This means, upgrading of sites so that it can serve more people or upgrading
the site so that it can accommodate more tenants. Upgrading scope involves
adding MW or GSM poles, Rectifiers, DCDB’s, breakers on site so that the site
can serve more tenant and customers. Best one has more has 100 sites with
Reactivation/Improvement:- By definition, site reactivation/Improvement
involves all site renovations so as to make the site in good condition. Site
Reactivation includes removing of all unwanted materials/Equipment on site,
construction of new equipment sleepers/slabs if required, new electrical
installations as well as improvement of drainage systems and oversite
aggregates. Best One has done more than 10 site with similar scope.
10. Tower Dismantling:- This
means tower deccommision or tower demolitioning. This scope applies to all
surveyed towers and found to be not fit for use (Structurally failed). All
these towers are supposed to be dismantled and recovered to Client’s warehouse
as scraps. Best One has done more than 180 sites with similar scope.
11. Tower Strengthening:-
This means increasing strength of the tower/structure. This is done after PCS
(Preconstruction Survey). During PCS, all tower issues are highlighted in the
report. For major issues, the tower will be recommended to be dismantled but
for minor issues, the tower will be recommended to be strengthened in order to
make if strong and safer for use. During Tower Strengthening implementation,
the can strengthening by replacing bolts, bracings (Horizontal &
diagonals), Legs (Star legs) as well as foundation. Best One Limited has been
involved in more than 50 towers with similar scope.
