Embassy Suites Verizon Antenna Concealment

To gain more cell coverage in downtown St. Paul, Verizon needed to install some antennas on top of the Embassy Suites building.  This also required an equipment shelter to be supported on the existing roof, which weighs several thousand pounds.  The existing building was analyzed, and new frames were constructed to transfer the loads to the existing building in a manner that eliminated the need for costly reinforcing of the existing structure.
