Five construction workers in front of radio tower

Flynn’s crew tackled the Hayfield Tower project south of Brandon, Manitoba. Hayfield is located in the bush just off highway 10. The crew removed a 1,000 sq. ft. BUR roof over the control room which houses all the control equipment for multiple cell and radio providers. The crew worked rapidly and completed most of the job on the first day.

The tower itself is over 1,300 feet tall. It was the tallest radio control tower in western Canada when it was built. The current one is not the original because that one came down in an ice storm almost a decade ago. Its remains can still be seen on site today as a long line cutting through the surrounding bush. The original concrete anchors, about the size of a pickup truck, were pulled right out of the ground.

Well done, crew!
