Tilson provides a range of site development and maintenance services for mobile carriers including construction, construction management, small cell and DAS deployment, and site acquisition. Tilson also specializes in microwave pathing and trouble shooting.  Because we have teams that specialize in all aspects of cellular builds from site acquisition, through construction and ongoing operations and maintenance, we can expedite large projects and offer seamless transitions between milestones.  We live to protect the schedule and find ways to provide early deliverables and wins for our carrier customers. 


At Tilson, safety and quality are prerequisites, not differentiators.  Every member of our construction team goes through ComTraining before working on a tower.  Tilson is also a member of NATE and adheres to the NATE Star Initiative guidelines for safety and training. 

Tilson has cellular construction teams based in Portland, ME, Syracuse NY, Pittsburg, PA and Foley, AL and has built hundreds of LTE and 4G sites for several different carriers.


Tilson recently completed LTE DAS deployments for AT&T in the Tip O’Neill and Ted Williams road tunnels under Boston, sections of the now complete big dig. Tilson helped test and evaluate what existing fiber and coaxial cable could be reused, upgraded and replaced inside and outside plant cabling, installed and racked head end equipment, added and repaired electrical drops and powered antennas, and commissioned and tested the system. Tilson went above and beyond the required specification by double protective coating exposed metal parts to guard against the acid wash used to clean the tunnels and salty spray thrown up by traffic in the winter.
