Diamond’s senior executives have managed more than 100,000 properties throughout the US for utilities, individuals, commercial enterprises, real estate investment trusts, railroads and municipalities.

COLOCATION and NEW TOWER BUILDS on UTILITY PROPERTIES:

Mobile data traffic increases every year and with limited capacity on existing wireless infrastructure, there is a growing demand for building new sites and towers. Diamond can help address your residents’ demand for enhanced wireless coverage without compromising the visual aesthetics of your community.

Diamond partners with FirstEnergy, one of the largest utility companies in the US, to provide colocation opportunities on utility and communication structures and other owned properties. By using already-existing utility infrastructure, we minimize the visual impact from building new infrastructure.

Diamond Communications enjoys working with state and local planners as well as wireless firms to promote awareness of using FirstEnergy companies’ existing towers and properties to serve as wireless communications structures. By working together, Diamond colocated wireless sites become “win-win” solutions for our customers and support the communities in which we live and work.

Our site inventory covers more than 65,000 square miles of territory with approximately 120,000 structures and properties running along 20,000 miles of transmission line towers, radio towers, monopoles, distribution poles, property rights-of-way, buildings and properties.

Whether it’s building a new tower on municipality or state or local government land, Diamond is a full-service tower infrastructure company that can help you meet your community’s needs. Our expertise in all aspects of new tower builds will ensure your project will be handled efficiently and quickly.
