The Project

A nationally ranked Columbus Ohio Children's Hospital needed to remove two existing cell towers and construct a larger hospital owned tower allowing for the expansion of the overall campus. Once this was accomplished they needed to relocate and update their existing DAS system to service the $880M expansion of the existing campus.

The Challenge
