“The Wired Certification Guidelines for Commercial Developments and Redevelopments,” reportedly the only manual of its kind, was released this month.
Published by WiredScore, the guide covers how to optimally design for mobile capacity planning, conduit points of entry, electrical resiliency, and flexibility to adopt new building technologies. Designed to be used by architects, engineers, and developers during design and construction phases, the document outlines Wired Certification criteria and best practices to meet the technology needs and expectations of future tenants.
WiredScore developed criteria based on evaluation of over 900 commercial office buildings across the United States and United Kingdom, while also referencing best practices developed by experts in real estate, technology, and telecommunications.
The standards can significantly simplify design and could eliminate the need to retrofit buildings to meet new technological demands such as smart building technology, Arie Barendrecht, founder and CEO of WiredScore, told GlobeSt. The manual is available for free download at: http://blog.wiredscore.com/con
