Innovating Towards the Future

WELCOME TO HIGHTOWER SOLUTIONS

HighTower Solutions, Inc. is a tower mapping and inspection company that is dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of quality.  Our reports revolutionized the industry requirements and has set the standard for many of the largest tower owners in the industry.  

With tenured and certified employees that have been a part of the company since inception, our experience and education permeates throughout everything we do.  Our staff is highly committed to our clients' success and each report is our highest priority.  

 

At HighTower, we travel throughout the entire United States.  Coordination of logistics is our forté.  From the tips of mountain tops to the largest cities, we will be there and get the work completed for you.  

TRAINING

We invest 3 weeks of classroom and supervised on-tower training in our training facility and designated training towers.  Our staff then spends an additional 3 months in the field supervised by a training crew with more than 15 years of experience.  It is through this education that our company standards are further enhanced.  Safety first.  Precision.  Pride in our work.

 

Our training facility is approximately 2,500 square feet with a guyed tower, self supporter and monopole.  We also have examples of boom and mounts, torque arms and anchor heads.  Our training program uses more information than just what is sold off the shelf, we incorporate safety, client standards, fall-protection and our in-house certified Rescue Training program. We test our climbers to ensure understanding and then test again in the field to ensure continued performance.

 

HighTower's crews are continuously drug-tested, certified and professional.  Our crews are people we are proud to have and representing our work and brand and we care very much about them beyond the day's work.
