Tower Specialty Contractors
The Construction Industry Licensing Board has developed a new specialty license for the construction of cell and energy towers. Previously contractors constructing cell and energy towers had to qualify as general contractors. Most contractors with tower construction experience lacked the substantive building construction experience required for a general contractor’s license. Tower Specialty license applicants may utilize their tower construction experience, but are required to pass the general contractor examinations.
