Transcript of Unicorn Wireless Engineering Presentation

  • 1. Wireless Site Acquisition

2. Unicorns Site Acquisition Services

  • Unicorn is actively involved in site acquisition and permitting. We have a track record of success in many project areas worldwide.

3. Site Acquisition

  • Identifying optimal site locations (candidates)
  • Negotiating lease terms that are most favourable to our clients and lease management
  • Site acquisition for: chimneys, guyed towers, self supported towers, water towers, monopoles, rooftops, collocation.
  • Site Acquisition Report for each candidate which contains local zoning, maps photos, narrative explanations of acquisition terms and site findings, preliminary latitude, longitude and ground elevation of the site, locations of power, access and a field sketch of the proposed site arrangement.

4. Unicorns Site Permitting Service

  • Building permits
  • Examination for compatibility
  • with local construction codes
  • Maintaining contact with local officials throughout approval process
  • Prepare construction book
  • Complete specific documentation
  • Liaison with building inspectors to secure building permits for approved site

5. Unicorns Permitting Focus

  • Meeting client's assignment criteria
  • Providing ease of construction
  • The impact of the lease to the construction cost
  • Providing convenient access and utility service
  • Efficient and systematic approach
  • Imposing the least amount of liability to our clients
  • Considering any environmental concerns

6. Wireless Site Design 7. Unicorns Site Design Services
