Nokia Mobile Telephone Base Stations Roll-out Programme


A team of Bovis Lend Lease engineers was incorporated into the Nokia Spain team installing mobile telephone base stations in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. A total of 60 – 70 base stations have been installed on the island.
The network comprised the base stations of two types, either poles on roof tops or greenfield towers. The roof-top poles take between 2 to 3 weeks to mount and the towers about 10-14 days. Each antenna has an average cost of £8,000 to £12,000.
Tenerife is the first area of a continuous roll-out programme in Spain which will eventually cover the whole country.
Bovis Lend Lease is presently in negotiations with Nokia to continue providing our client with its Project Management services as construction and logistics experts countrywide.
