Design Brief

The Tongan Government required 30m high cell phone towers that could withstand cyclonic winds up to 200km/hr in a corrosive salt laden environment. This height was determined by the average height of the coconut palms on the islands. The Cell phone towers were required to be transported as kitset components to the islands and able to be erected using local labour and equipment. The structure was to use UniLog poles in clay/corral ground conditions.
