More About Us

 

 

Services

We offer only quality services

Monopole During Monopole installation we first focus on exact drilling location for bolt pattern placement. Then foundation work begins and we ensure the concretes proper depth and integrity. After completion of the foundation we install grounding, power and telco. The crane company then stacks the tower while we prepare our coax, wave guide lines, and antennas. Once the crane company finishes we then install all the carriers equipment.
Self Support Self Support Towers can be built up to 400' and in a way that allows for easy multiple carrier placement. As with other towers we focus on foundation integrity before we allow the crane company to stack the tower. Built in multiple sections with a crane, Self Support Towers are fascinating to watch being assembled. It takes precision from the crane company to align all tower parts. Once the Tower is completely stacked, a Capstan Winch is used to hoist up the coax and antennas for us to complete the installation.
Stealth Stealth applications require a lot of pre-planning. Whether it be a Flag Pole, Pine Tree, or Brick Roof Top we have to consider what structure the equipment is on. Then we make sure that the stealth applications matches the surrounding environment and conceals the carriers equipment. After we have assembled all the parts we then test and make sure all equipment is working and not being compromised by the stealth application.
Upgrades During an upgrade there are several things we can do including swapping out radio heads, antennas, install new coax or hybrid lines, A/C meter upgrades, and change out live PDF's. These upgrades offer better service for customers. As technology changes this keeps our customers at the forefront.
Modifications We provide modifications such as installing a larger foundation around the existing foundation. We can re-tension guyed wires or replace them, install new cross members on a lattice tower or weld new stiffeners to strengthen the structure.
Site Demolition We offer a range of demolition services. Anything from removing antennas, coax, cabinets and removing the entire site including the tower and pier foundation.
Concrete Repairs We provide services for all types of concrete work including items such as; grout repairs on monopoles, tracking cracks in foundations and sealing them to prevent further damage.
Co-Locations We take great pride during installation of each Co-Location. We are able to install lines, antennas, equipment and shelters so that a new carrier can provide service on an existing tower without interruption or interference to existing carriers.
Roof Top Liberty Electric Inc. has completed several roof top Installations throughout Utah and Idaho. Careful Consideration is made to accommodate specific requirements of the carrier while maintaining building and roofing integrity.
Shelter Placement Our in-house crews have a wide range of experience erecting both pre-fabricated shelters and constructing stick-frame shelters.
Microwave Liberty Electric inc. has installed microwave dishes and radio equipment along with wave guide, line dehydrator with manifold systems and all needed connectors. While on or near towers with microwave dishes, employees strictly adhere to RF Awareness guidelines.
Generator Due to the unique ability of Liberty Electric we have delivered and installed many generators to new and existing sites throughout our region to provide back-up power for the carriers equipment.

 

Team

Meet our management team

Jim Coles
CEO/ Owner

After Serving in the United State Navy I went to work for Wasatch Electric where I was a Project Manager and became a Master Electrician. After working at Wasatch for several years SBA Communications asked me to run their Utah office. While successfully leading SBA Communications I felt I could do more for the Telecommunications Industry by assembling my own team. In 2003 my wife Michele Coles and I started Liberty Electric, Inc.

Michele Coles
COO/ Owner

When the opportunity arose for my husband to start Liberty Electric I decided to bring my knowledge and experience to the table and embark on this adventure with him. Previously I had worked in financial logistics. My experience in finance, budgeting, forecasting and production rates has helped steer the company in a positive direction. We take great pride in being cash flow positive, self funding the business as we grow.

Matt Coles
Estimating Director

I started in Tower Communications right out of high school. I began as a Tower Tech and after climbing for a while I wanted more. I went to school to become a Journeyman Electrician and received my E100 contractor License. I currently am working on the B100 and becoming a Master Electrician.

I am responsible for ensuring that robust pre contract estimating and cost plans are produced for each project. During each phase I lead the estimating team in purchasing material, change orders and installation.

Judi Gatti
Administration Director

I retired from Mervyns Distribution Center as an Inventory Specialist after working there for 20 years. My many years of employment brought me a variety of experience. I have worked with people from all walks of life and many different levels of employee experience. I am comfortable communicating to both my management team or the new employee that just started.

Guy Johansen
Operations Director

At 19 I had passion for climbing towers that grew into a passion for the industry. In the year 2000 I decided that this is what I wanted to do for my career. After 12 years of experience in the field Jim and Michele gave me an opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with others and now I am the Operations Directors and in house Certified ComTrain instructor.

I’m also responsible for our crew’s day-to-day activities and ensuring the productivity of each job.
