Buildings of the Future
Technology infrastructure is not one size fits all. 100 days ago, in the unprecedented time of COVID-19, the fundamental technology requirements for buildings of the future were altered. Future-proof technology infrastructure requires an insight-driven approach designed, mapped and aligned with state-of-the-art architectural design. The network environment is becoming more complex, as bandwidths and user needs increase, so must the capacity of the framework to support it.
We’ve built a reputation for designing intelligent IT solutions for commercial real estate, government, healthcare, education and research, transportation, hospitality and cultural markets - designed for the future, today.
“I commend Level-1’s work on the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital. The data center and related infrastructure that Thomas and his team designed in 2002 has proven itself to be of the upmost quality and continues to serve the hospital well without fail.”
Former Director of Capital Planning and Policy for Cook County
“The telecom infrastructure that Level-1 designed for the O’Hare Modernization and Expansion Project allowed us to make best use of the airport’s existing infrastructure while also enabling us to implement new technologies later. Their expert knowledge of how to incorporate technology infrastructure into the construction phase for Aviation Building #4 was particularly valuable to me and my staff. I would gladly work with Thomas and his team again.”

“Being the second largest court system in the nation, we wanted to ensure that the technical infrastructure for our office was a complete and accurate portrayal of Cook County’s existing architecture. The detailed network design that Level-1 provided was critical to our preliminary planning efforts and structured approach to creating a solid and robust foundation for successful implementation. The imaging and document management system they delivered exceeded our expectations and was of the highest quality. I was also impressed with Level-1’s professionalism and integrity and look forward to working with them again.”
