As the critical first step to getting a site built, site acquisition services drives the ability to get the carrier on-air whether it’s a new build or a collocation. B+T Group has established a reputation for being a go-to for these services. Our team is built around several industry veterans who have experience with every major carrier in the United States.

Whether we’re auditing a total install as a post-construction inspection or a simple collocation, our team of trained climbers and technicians provides detailed reporting and information for each completed audit.

Our mappings and inspections are performed by experienced technicians. We accurately capture data as it’s recorded, minimizing errors that may prove costly when evaluating structural integrity in the future.

The demand for national coverage is propelling the need for microwave installs to provide the necessary backhaul. Our certified technicians and microwave climb team work together to provide end-to-end installation services.

We recognize the ever-expanding marketplace for radio channels. We hire certified technicians to support radio, adds and base station installs. Our certifications include OEMs like Motorola, Ericsson, Alcatel Lucent and Nortel.

Battery maintenance is necessary for complete function of any project. We recognize the importance of safety and regulations. That’s why we follow strict protocol for installing, removing and disposing of batteries from cell sites.

Carriers have shifted the way they are designing their macro networks by significantly increasing in-building DAS installations. At B+T Group, we recognized the trend and built a team of engineers and technicians to support this demand. We’re capable of partnering on the design component because of our vast engineering team experience, but we’ve also trained our technicians to install these systems since they greatly differ from tower installations. Combined, the services create a wealth of value to the carriers since we’re typically involved on the front end design.

B+T Group equipped to handle virtually any kind of construction service. With access to the necessary training and tools, our team of technicians and climbers is capable of supporting the most complex projects.

With more than 1,000 PIM tests under our belt, we honed our skills to be able to identify all types of infrastructure problems. Our team tests, troubleshoots and fixes hundreds of cell sites, saving our customers time and money.

Quality doesn't just describe what we do; it defines the relationship we establish with each of our clients. B+T Group is trusted by the world's largest brands to provide the most reliable telecom and structural engineering services.

B+T Group was founded in 2000 by Dinesh Bhat and Chad Tuttle. As former consulting engineers in the telecommunications industry, Dinesh and Chad saw an opportunity to create their own company. In 10 years, a two-man operation grew into a full-service structural engineering firm.

B+T Group is a leading engineering, procurement and construction services firm. Based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, B+T Group holds professional engineering licenses in 50 states, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and provides structural engineering and telecommunications services to commercial, industrial and residential industries.
