Examples of Eclipse Engineering’s structural design services for BLM towers, Forest Service Lookout Towers, Access Platforms for Military, Goverment and other business sectors.
Eclipse has performed condition assessments for lookout towers throughout the northwestern United States. Assessments included detailed as-built drawings, seismic and wind analysis and material testing to determine the structural integrity of the towers. For example, initial inspection & analysis of existing conditions and retrofit design for a 100’ tall steel lookout tower may include the addition of an observation platform for public viewing. When the in-depth field inspection showed that there was a combination of member and connection deficiencies as built, the structural design and construction of the retrofit included.
