Space Needle

Distributed Antenna System (DAS)

Seattle, WA

Project Date

The Space Needle is an icon across the Seattle skyline. Originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, it has since been a favorite tourist attraction for visitors and locals alike. With 360-degree views of the city from the observation deck, 520 feet above ground, it offers a scenic view of downtown Seattle, the Olympic and Cascade mountains, and Elliot Bay.

This historic landmark gets approximately 1.3 million guests per year and LDC’s top priority was to ensure they have great wireless coverage everywhere during their visit. We led the planning, engineering, and design of a new Distributed Antenna System (DAS) throughout the 5 main floors, from the basement to the rooftop observation deck. The system was designed and engineered to provide excellent coverage to employees and guests with a build-out of the head end equipment room as well as each of the remote antenna locations on all floors.

Going Above the Standard

LDC led the way with the LL Group to ensure the least amount of impact to guests during the design and construction phase. We worked closely with all stakeholders to accomplish 100% of the objectives for coverage while limiting visibility and disruption. By designing around heavy guest access times and locating equipment in out of the way places, we were able to provide a service beyond expectations for our client and the Space Needle team.
