WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for increased access, speed and bandwidth by both users and telecommunications providers is at an all-time high, as technology surges ahead in the wireless telecommunications industry. 3G has given way to 4G, with 5G on the horizon. As the suburbs grow and telecommuting expands, demand for increased access and speed is often thwarted by community resistance to cell tower placement, while in urban settings, more compact and powerful small cell installations are presenting new opportunities for building owners to capitalize on underutilized space.
In response to the increase in current demand and the inevitable growth in this sector from emerging technology, IVI International, Inc., a leading construction and environmental consultancy, reports that IVI Telecom Services, Inc., an affiliate dedicated to environmental and regulatory consulting, assessment and evaluation of existing and potential telecommunications projects, has more than doubled in the past year in both volume of assignments and number of employees.
IVI Telecom has consulted on thousands of projects for the installation of cell towers, pole sites and other telecommunication transmission, receiving, and relaying equipment since launching the company five years ago. IVI Telecom's services are tailored to the specific goals and concerns of wireless carriers, tower owners, federal, state and local municipalities, and property owners. IVI Telecom handles everything from one-off assignments to 1,000+ property portfolios.
This tremendous growth has been under the guidance of President Adrian Berezowsky, who is responsible for the oversight and management of the company. His technical expertise in regulatory environmental and compliance issues specifically related to the industry can be attributed to his hands-on experience conducting the various services required, combined with his dedication to consulting with the various federal, state and tribal entities involved and creating best practices for interacting with same.
Mr. Berezowsky, recently named one of the Business Council of Westchester's "40 Under 40 Rising Stars," is an active participant in various industry organizations. He holds leadership positions in two state wireless associations, including his role as Vice President of the Executive Committee of the Board and Chair of the Events Committee for The New York State Wireless Association (NYSWA), and Board Member and Co-Chair of the Regulatory Committee for The Pennsylvania Wireless Association (PWA).
"Advancements in small cell technology to meet the rising demand for digital data bandwidth in urban and suburban locations, coupled with a continued proliferation to meet the cell phone and wireless demands of rural residents are driving growth in this sector," said Mr. Berezowsky. "As this technology evolves and requires smaller and smaller footprints, building and property owners are being presented with more and more opportunities to capitalize on unused or underutilized space as telecom companies seek to keep up with demand."
The success of IVI Telecom is part of their continuing additions to their in-house specialty services, which also include Asbestos and Seismic Risk Surveys, Forensic and Zoning Studies, Indoor Air Quality & Mold Assessments, Construction Cost Estimating/Consulting and Cap-Ex Replacement Reserve Studies. IVI's specialty services are included in many of their risk management and due diligence packages, but they can also work as stand-alone services to meet the specific needs of their clients.
