Met Life Real Estate

DVI can leverage its extensive technical expertise to Real Estate companies. DVI can support these firm’s technology deployments or relocations including voice, LAN, desktop, WAN, wireless, cloud, or roof-top engineering for deployment of antennas to support numerous wireless applications including UHF/VHF land mobile radio, satellite Transmit/Receive and TVRO as well as cellular communications systems.

DVI provided technical leadership on many projects, providing telecommunications solutions for a number of properties owned or managed by Met Life Real Estate.  Listed below are some of the projects.

  • 200 Park Avenue

For the building located at 200 Park Avenue, New York, DVI provided rooftop engineering, inventory, and asset management.  Drawings were provided that identified microwave stations and sites for whip antennas. Standard leases were then developed for these sites enabling the building to better manage these sites. In particular DVI recommended restructuring their roof leases, to more accurately reflect going antenna market rates.

DVI also introduced CLECs (Competitive Local Exchange Carriers) into our building. By offering choices to our tenants we are able to both retain and attract clients who wish to choose from a group of local exchange carriers.

  • 660 Madison Avenue

In order to increase the marketability of this building, DVI designed a new riser system.  This included designing the layout of termination panels, power outlets, and wallspace allocation for both cellar telecom room and closets. DVI also defined the environmental requirements for telecom closets and cellar telecom room, and specified the riser cable requirements.

  • 551 Madison (The Fred French Building)

When renovating the Fred French Building, the firm asked DVI to retrofit and upgrade the telecommunications infrastructure.  After completing a detailed survey of the building, which assessed what needed to be done in order to update our telecommunications infrastructure, DVI designed a new riser and redesigned their telecommunications closets.  These improvements turned a city landmark into a state-of-the art facility allowing us to offer tenants technological amenities while preserving the building’s old world charm.

  • One Metropolitan Square (St. Louis)

This building is one of the largest properties in St. Louis and enjoyed clear, unobstructed line-of-sight for major proprietors in St. Louis. DVI analyzed the roof-top potential and developed a standard lease agreement for this property.
