Maintaining Data Collection

The Blue Hill Observatory currently holds the record for the longest span of continuous weather data collected and is home of the oldest climate record in the nation.  The old observatory building was scheduled to be renovated and required all of the weather equipment to be removed from the roof of the observatory.  To help maintain the continuous collection of data, we were tasked with the management and design of a self-supporting tower behind the building to support the weather equipment during the renovation.  For the design portion, we focused on the rock anchor foundation, tower anchorage into the foundation, and creating a custom mount at the top of the tower for the weather equipment.
