Scott is a key component of Transwave’s success.  He brings a blend of differing disciplines including a comprehensive knowledge of RF design principles as well as a thorough understanding of the construction industry.

Scott is active in our sales process having established close relationships with key partners and clients.  Throughout the years, he has and continues to work with the Sales Department on new opportunities as well as with the existing client base on system upgrades.  Scott works with clients and prospects on a consultative sales basis to evaluate their needs and to develop specifications tailored to meet specified requirements and growth.

Areas of particular strength include his ability to design complex network systems incorporating components such as towers, antennas, radio electronics, bandwidth management, and network CPE equipment.  Also of extreme importance are his unique understanding of tower design and construction, and the impact of geo-technical data in the design of foundations.

Scott’s formal education began at Erie Community College where he concentrated in Communications with special focus on wireless.  There he learned the theoretical aspect of the technology that he would soon be applying hands on in his professional career.  Scott graduated from Erie Community College in 1984 with an Associate’s Degree in Communication Equipment Technology. 

Soon after graduating from College, Scott was employed with LJ Raymart, a prominent Western New York provider of mobile radios, CCTV and data control systems.  Because of the divestiture of the telecommunications industry, Scott’s focus was concentrated in the area of microwave design for both public and private sector clients.  Scott was intimate in the design of many cutting edge networks at that time including those for some of the new regional independent cellular carriers, school districts, public safety entities, industrial clients, and municipalities.  

In 1988, Scott left with the entrepreneurial spirit to form his own business, Construct Enterprises, a business that still flourishes today.  Construct is a General Contracting Firm specializing in site development.
