The term "smart building" has been tossed around a lot lately, but what exactly makes a building smart? The most basic function of a smart building is that the features (water meters, pumps, fire alarms, power, lighting) within it are linked and "talk" to one another. This technology both optimizes building performance by automating multiple processes, such as heating, cooling, and security, and significantly reduces building overheads through intelligent application. Owners and developers are motivated by the improvement to the environment and their bottom-line.
A common question that property owners might ask is, “How much does a cell tower cost?” or “How much is my rooftop space really worth?” There is no definitive answer to this question. The cost of a cell tower depends on various factors that could affect the price. This typically includes location, population, and the cost of construction, not to mention network quality. But in order to have a high-quality signal, the cost is higher.
