Fruitland- Raw Land
Fruitland- Raw Land Fruitland, Maryland

Client: VTS with the Maryland Department of Information Technology
Status: Completed 2013

As a raw land project for the Maryland Department of Information Technology on the Eastern Shore, Fruitland consisted of clearing a 78 by 144 foot piece of land for a 330 foot tower in an area known for a high water table and sand which required a unique approach to the tower foundation. By partnering with one of our trusted engineering firms, MAC designed a foundation solution with auger cast piles with pile caps. MAC fenced the area, poured concrete pads and installed a propane tank. Mid Atlantic Contracting’s unique and unparalleled background in both wireless and foundation work made this project a success.

Reston Town Center- Rooftop
Reston Town Center- Rooftop Reston, Virginia

Client: Verizon Wireless
Status: Completed 2013

Reston Town Center had all the makings of what could be a difficult project but proved to be a place where MAC could showcase their extensive skills. MAC operated out of the penthouse suite in this 16 story building with restricted access due to its high end tenants. MAC stick-built a rooftop wireless communications shelter for the antennas that stood 202 feet from ground level. The building structure had many obstacles that required multiple X-rays before establishing a final path. Core drilling was used for utilities, allowing gas, electric and telephone access to the rooftop. Stealth panels were installed for aesthetic reasons to conceal the antennas.

Millwood- Raw Land
Millwood- Raw Land Paris, Virginia

Client: Verizon Wireless
Status: Completed 2008

MAC took the Millwood job as a typical small mountain excavation site. MAC’s first step was to install a road in the heavily wooded site. MAC’s scope of work included three other major facets. The first portion included clearing the land of trees and debris. Secondly, the leveling of the ground to allow the Verizon box to reach subscribers from the location at the bottom of the hill. After approval from Virginia’s Department of Public Transportation, MAC’s third duty was installing an 8 foot wide by 28 foot deep caisson. The shelter was then installed in preparation for a 99 foot monopine tower.
