WiredScore, the company setting the global standard for technology in the built world through education and certification via WiredScore and SmartScore, has moved to a new UK headquarters in Shoreditch, London, to facilitate its rapid expansion.
The 7,700 sq ft office located in the Tea Building on Shoreditch High Street, will be home to WiredScore’s growing UK team which currently comprises around 80 employees.
Tom McClellan, Country Director, UK & Ireland and Growth Markets, said: “WiredScore’s headcount has doubled in the last 12 months. This latest office move will allow us not only to house our growing team, but also firmly establish ourselves in a space which enables us to work productively and collaboratively with each other.
“We are also proud to be working in a building that was one of the first office buildings in London to be WiredScore certified, so this move carries sentimental value as well as a practical one.”
A striking former warehouse in a prime location on Shoreditch High Street, Tea Building is an iconic local landmark, and is currently home to tenants including Mother, Wise and private members club Soho House. The building was acquired by Derwent London in 2001. It is currently WiredScore Gold certified, boasting excellent in-building connectivity through a robust digital infrastructure.
William Waples, Asset Manager, Derwent London, added: “We are excited that WiredScore has established its UK HQ in Tea Building. Having worked very closely with WiredScore on our wider portfolio of office assets, we recognise how important it is to have a space that boasts superior digital connectivity and are thrilled that we’ve been able to work with them to deliver that.”
The news follows WiredScore’s recent Series B fundraise which saw the company raise a total of $15m. The funding was led by Beringea with strategic investment from Cushman & Wakefield and Fifth Wall, amongst others.
