About Me: Hi, I’m Canice, 44 year old father of 3 (9, 4 and 1) from Kilkenny. I am interested in exploring foreign countries & cultures, I enjoy learning about space, nature in general and a whole lot of other topics. Being from Kilkenny of course I also like to play a bit of hurling in a social hurling group on the weekend
My Work: Wireless and land based Telecoms design
Wireless mobile broadband (4G&5G) is our main business. This entails civil/structural/H&S, electrical surveys of existing telecoms support steelwork structure and if on a building rooftop, the building structure support elements.
Main task on site is checking condition (signs of corrosion, damage, etc), specifications and general suitability of all on site elements for use or reuse. All requirements need to facilitate the installation of the bespoke RF design for each and every individual base station site.
My Typical Day: My typical day involves an inspection of a Communications Tower &/ or Rooftop inspection somewhere around the country.
What I'd do with the money: I'd organise site visits to a telecoms base station site for engineering students.
