Buchanan General Contracting Company is a national leader in cell site installations.


We were an early player in telecommunications, working with Craig McCaw's Cellular One Corporation to develop and install their first cell site in 1986. With the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and subsequent service areas auctions, we ramped up our estimating division, management, and field crews to address the increased volumes of installations throughout the United States. A current overview of our company includes:

            • Telecommunications contracts in excess of $142 million
            • Completion of over 2000 cell sites by Buchanan and affiliates
            • Bonding to $25 million
            • Nationwide subcontractor and vendor sourcing
            • Clients include AT&T Mobility, Ericsson, General Dynamics, Bechtel,
               T-Mobile, Winstar, Sprint and Charter Communications
            • Construction of AT&T Wireless Services' Northwest Regional Center
            • Work territory encompassing the Western States, Texas, the
               Midwest, and expansion plans for the South and the East Coast


Bundle and Network Installations Experience
