Why get certified?

Internet connectivity is essential to the tenant experience in office buildings. The trend towards smart building technology means that commercial real estate developers must plan for the future and that's why Wired Certification is so valuable. Building to Wired Certification standards ensures your development is tech-forward and ready for the next generation of business tenants.

What does Wired Certification measure?

Our engineers use a point system to determine the level of Wired Certification a building can achieve. Our point system is vetted by industry experts and designed to give credit for building connectivity features that enhance the tenant experience such as...

Protection from outages

To ensure future tenants have access to reliable connections, a building's physical infrastructure must be designed to be resilient and redundant. We look at the number of points of entry, the number of risers, electrical resiliency, and other measures to ensure the physical space allotted to telecommunications equipment is diverse and protected.

Future-proofing

Buildings may be designed to accommodate the needs of today, but should also be thinking about the needs of tomorrow. Our engineers will examine the planned building infrastructure to ensure it can meet the needs of future tenants. This could include anything from allocating the space for multiple internet service providers' equipment, to testing for mobile coverage.

Preparation for tenant connectivity

We look at the number of confirmed letters of intent from internet service providers to bring service to future tenants in addition to checking that a boilerplate agreement is prepared. Both of which can assist tenant's ability to get internet service set up when they move in.
