WiredScore, the company behind the international standard for rating Internet connectivity in commercial buildings, has released the Wired Certification Guidelines for Commercial Developments and Redevelopments.
The guidelines for designing buildings to meet the best-in-class standards for connectivity and telecommunications infrastructure, is the first of its kind.
The document can be utilized by architects, engineers and developers during the design and construction phases of any development.
They outline best practices that should be incorporated to meet the technology needs of future tenants.
WiredScore developed the criteria based on evaluation of over 900 office buildings in the United States and United Kingdom, while also referencing best practices developed by industry experts.
“We recognized that no technical standards existed that truly addressed the needs of commercial real estate tenants,” said Arie Barendrecht, founder and CEO of WiredScore. “These standards can significantly simplify this design process, while potentially eliminating the need to retrofit buildings down the road to meet new technological demands such as smart building technology.”
