Tower Install – Day 4 “Final Assembly and Inspection”

We finished up the last remaining tasks on the tower assembly today, including drilling the rotator plate and top plate and mounting the rotator adapter and Rohn thrust bearing. We also installed the climbing bolts, which are used to climb the tower. Climbing without them would be difficult due to the layout of the diagonal braces.

After that, we tightened all of the tower bolts while pulling the tower sections together with a come-along to ensure everything was straight and true.

The County inspector arrived in the afternoon to inspect the foundation excavation and rebar work. He consulted the plans and measured the hole to verify compliance with the design and then signed off.

The next step is pouring the concrete, which should happen next week, followed by waiting for it to cure.
