Sizing Concrete Pole Bases For 40 Foot Steel Lighting Poles


I'm trying to bid a job on 6- 40 foot lighting poles for a baseball field. I need to know how to determine to size of the pole bases. We will have 4 1500 watt lights on each pole and the poles are steel. Can anyone help out?

You'll need an engineer.

Soil conditions & wind load will be big
factors in tjhe size of the footings & bolts.
