LEED-Certified Buildings Offer Terrible Cell Service—But There’s A Fix (Or Several)

Today’ green building initiatives are transforming the way we design, build, maintain, and operate buildings, homes, and communities. But environmentally friendly, hyper-sealed buildings—certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)—also happen to be terrible places for cell reception. Is it possible to design buildings that are good for the earth and human’s connectivity needs at the same time? Join this session to find out!

Telecommunications experts Michael Bickford and Roberto M. Filho will explain why LEED-certified buildings are such a barrier for mobile communications. They will also detail the negative impact LEED-certified buildings have on vacancy ratios and tenants’ lifestyle—and how to solve this big problem. The session will also discuss the various available solutions on the market, as well as the average true cost to own each.

After attending this event, you will understand the specific connectivity challenges your building(s) suffers from, which tools offer the best solution for your property—at what price, and how to discuss with property owners/managers the necessary steps and budget to fix recurrent connectivity problems.
