Advantage Engineers, a nationally ranked engineering firm, manages all aspects of the wireless infrastructure deployment processes including site acquisition, architecture, and design, plus construction management.

“We’re proud to offer turnkey professional services to our customers,” said John McGrath, Chief Executive Officer, who has over 24 years of experience in the telecommunications industry. “We take a holistic approach to problem-solving, and we believe that one firm managing all aspects of complex telecommunications projects provide maximum benefit to our customers.”

Advantage Engineers has an experienced, in-house professional staff supporting the major wireless carriers’ telecommunications initiatives, including New Site Development, Modifications, Sector Adds, DAS & Small Cell, Generator & HVAC, Fiber Optics, Microwave/AAV, and Temporary Sites for Special Projects.

McGrath noted that the company is gearing up for 5G and the next major wave of deployment for wireless and wireline infrastructure. “Over the last few years – with the advent of small cells it’s one big network of fiber and wireless,” he said. “We’re excited about the opportunities 5G will afford, and we’re positioned to deliver. We have enough staff, who are properly trained, to provide turnkey professional services on the wireless and fiber optics side.”

Advantage Engineers is cross-training drafters, engineers, real estate personnel and construction managers to work on fiber optics and small cell projects as well as the more traditional macro sites. “This training approach has given us the flexibility to shift resources around as needed,” said McGrath. “We’re developing quick response teams for opportunities with existing clients in new markets, and we are ready to move to locations where we’re needed physically. We can ‘put boots on the ground’ right away.”

“While we have 16 locations nationwide, we are regional experts and pride ourselves on the relationships we’ve created and our jurisdictional knowledge. Our team includes great, resilient people with vast expertise who work together to serve our customers and solve challenges,” said McGrath.

Advantage Engineers has been on a growth path with its dedicated team leading the charge. “I’m a big believer in grit,” said McGrath. “And everyone has a level of grit and tenancy that serves our clients and us well.”
