One better.  My wife's office was in the Monadnock Building in Chicago
for a few years.  It was built in 1893, and her half of the building was
all brick.  Loadbearing brick.  17 stories of brick.  A big, thick,
cable- and wireless-hostile pile of brick.  Exterior walls are six feet
thick at the base, and still 3 feet thick by her floor.  Interior walls
are brick, and loadbearing.  (Thank Ghu they subdivided the offices
from the original spaces--at least *some* of the walls inside the office
were plasterboard.)

I hated working on that network.
