Abstract: Wireless communication in building application and design currently act as two separate platforms of communication for inhabitants. Users utilize information sent and received through wireless technology unaffected by the space they are residing. As a means of data exchange and transfer objective information this method of communication serves its expected purpose. On the contrary in the case of personal communication, the surrounding space becomes an insignificant contributor. Also in a situation of wireless system failure the built space does not act as back-up support to all running functions. This paper questions the extensive reviews and is based on focus expert interviews (Qualitative methods) on building designs with specific objectives i.e. a) To allow building design to act as a backup for effective communication in case of wireless system failure b) To assess the building design for enhanced communication. For the purpose of data collection ten expert Architects were called for a focused group interview. The themes and sub themes from the focused group interview were assessed through thematic analysis and the results are discussed below in section VI.
Keywords: Smart Buildings, Wireless, Communication, Backup, System Failure.
