Currently a lattice-work tower is used. A transition to pipes would reduce costs, and make it easier to erect.

The design can be done by Jorge, including the coupling between the pipes, but structural modelling of the tower would enable the use of less steel. There is software available for towers, probably as a add-on for one of the Autodesk tools.

Time estimate & Skill: 1-2 days to build model for any low-level engineer; 1 day for a competent mechanical engineer to do the analysis. (another 3-4 days if we need a professional engineer’s report, which we probably don’t until certification is done.)

Jorge will manage this project directly with the engineer.
