John Foley

General Manager

Safer Buildings Coalition

Compliance with Building and Fire Codes are a key milestone in obtaining Certificate of Occupancy. While some codes have been around for decades and the ins and outs are well established, In-Building Public Safety Wireless coverage is a relatively new requirement. Fire and Building codes requiring these systems are now established in the five boroughs of New York City and made part of the NYC Fire and Building Codes, and they are distinct from many of the national I-Codes and NFPA codes common in the surrounding states and across the country.

Failure to comply with these codes can result in a denial of your Certificate of Occupancy. Worse, addressing the requirements too late in the planning and building process will increase costs (and stress) dramatically.

This expert panel will describe the local requirements, best practices and lessons learned, and will reveal where to go to find the answers relevant for your jurisdiction and your project. 

John has held key business development, operations, engineering, and executive roles at telecom service companies such as Level 3 Communications, MFS, and MCI. John was a co-founder of XO Communications where he was VP of Operations and Engineering, and later VP of International Network Development. John led dark fiber provider City Signal Communications in the position of President and CEO. John most recently served as Capture Director for specialty construction firm Henkels and McCoy, a leading DAS Integrator. 

John also spent several years in television and video production services with PMTV, developing and managing complex video production projects including NCAA sports and corporate simulcasts and broadcasts. 

John came aboard the Safer Buildings Coalition in April of 2017, with a focus on serving the SBC mission, solidifying member services and value, and establishing a strong operational and financial base as tools to meet the business demands of SBC’s mission.
