Here’s a brief overview to assure you of the GPD Group’s approach to excellence:
Custom solutions: We don’t believe in a “one-size fits all” model – every customer is unique and our solutions are tailored for bespoke project management from end to end. We use methods like a detailed topographical survey, aerial photography, engineer site walks, zoning requirements, geotechnical data, FEMA surveys, value engineering and comprehensive identification of unique requirements to accurately define the scope of our projects.
Expertise and experience to your advantage: The combined expertise of over 250 employees specializing in areas of architectural and engineering design, construction, wireless systems, telecommunications and environmental services will effectively guide your project and add value at every stage.
Attention to detail: In our efforts to tailor an A&E program to meet all your specific construction and project management needs, we begin with scope based preparation of construction documents. Every detail from identifying existing conditions to the exact finished details of your proposed assets are recorded and presented in a comprehensive and easy to reference manner.
Since 1961, this approach has optimally served the interests of our clients throughout the wireless telecommunications industry as well as, every other market sector we serve.

While we tailor the approach to meet your needs, our typical method of preparing construction documents is scope based. Our documents are comprehensive when identifying existing conditions and very concise in conveying the exact finished details of your proposed assets. This attention to detail results in construction documents that significantly reduce confusion and conflict for all projects throughout the construction process:
As an added value, our A&E process includes a systematic effort of gathering all available and pertinent information, then reconciling it to what is conveyed in our construction drawings. This is the case for all of our plans, details, notes and specifications.
GPD’s approach to Structural and Tower Analysis services is tailored to meet your expectations every single project, every single time – putting forth every effort to effectively guide your projects and add value. We have completed over 10,000 structural analysis projects throughout all fifty (50) states. Our understanding of the code as well as, our experience and knowledge gained ensures that your asset is in the very best technical hands.
Whether your project is governed by EIA/TIA-222-F or EIA/TIA-222-G, efficient and effective structural analysis projects begin with the proper documentation of the asset in question. If you are able to provide the original tower design drawings, the foundation design, the geotechnical report, a detailed inventory of existing loading as well as, high resolution photographs, we are typically able to complete the structural analysis within five (5) to eight (8) business days.
In cases where all of the needed information cannot be located, the engineers of GPD Group can act as an owner’s agent by securing all of the needed information. Our engineers are very experienced with obtaining geotechnical investigation, foundation mapping, tower mapping and structural mapping. Depending on your preference, we can conduct a search of your existing files for the needed information or we can secure this information from the field.
In the event that the structural analysis indicates that the tower’s loading exceeds the capacity of the structure, our engineers are fully capable of developing modification drawings and even providing a turnkey solution for strengthening towers.
Throughout the past decade we have successfully completed over 4,500 wireless environmental projects.
A comprehensive understanding of Section 106 as it applies to the wireless industry is critical to navigate your projects through the development process. Our environmental professionals have the education, training, experience as well as, local relationships with SHPO personnel to ensure that your project is completed successfully in the timeliest manner.
In an economy that is ever increasing its focus upon Green projects, the professionals of GPD Group have invested an enormous amount of effort towards sustainable design and LEED certification. While these terms are often used, we have found that few organizations truly understand their applications and the long term benefits to you as well as, to our environment. Our team of LEED professions will help you understand these benefits and apply them to your projects.
GPD Group understands that you need to focus on managing your business and do not need to be burdened with the details of a successful development project. Whether it is a single inspection task or turnkey of a 300 site build program, GPD Group has the in-house professional resources and experience to ensure that your best interest are always accomplished.
All of these services can be tailored to meet your specific needs and add value to your projects. While performing these services, it is our goal to act as an extension of your business allowing you to become more successful.
