What does Wired Certification measure?
We measure the aspects of developments and redevelopments that will most significantly impact a tenant’s ability to run their business. Wired Certification rates a range of planned digital connectivity features that will ultimately ensure the building will fit the needs of tenants today and in the future.
Is the development future-proofed for tomorrow’s technology?
Buildings may be designed to accommodate the needs of today, but should also be thinking about the needs of tomorrow. When your pre-leased tenants are up for renewal, will the building still be cutting edge? Our engineers examine the planned building design to ensure it takes into account key principles of space planning and flexible infrastructure to ensure the building core can support the applications and requirements of future tenants.
Will tenants have access to reliable connectivity?
To ensure future tenants have access to dependable connections, a building's physical infrastructure must be designed to be resilient and redundant. We assess outside plant planning, horizontal & vertical pathway planning, electrical resiliency, and other measures to ensure the physical space allotted to telecommunications equipment is diverse and secure.
Will tenants have access to the internet services they need when they move in?
We validate the details of planned ISP availability in addition to checking that management has all of the right documentation in place to streamline installation. Both of which can assist tenant's ability to get internet service set up when they move in.
