Broadoak Asset Management have successfully achieved Wired Certified Gold rating for digital connectivity at its Q11 building at Quorum Business Park in Newcastle.
The Gold Seal is awarded in recognition of reliable and diverse internet connectivity within commercial buildings and prepared for the connectivity needs of future tenants. Wired Score is the global benchmark of digital connectivity, set up in New York in 2013 with the endorsement of Mayor Bloomberg. It was set up to improve the city’s technology infrastructure and it now operates across the Globe.
Quorum is among the first locations in the North East to get this gold accreditation. Fergus Trim, Director at Broadoak, the Asset Managers at Quorum said ‘We are delighted to get gold accreditation from Wired Score. This shows the investment we have made into the digital infrastructure including our partnership with Aspire, who have instilled a 1 gig bearer into the building. We can give tenants rapid connection with dedicated and cost-effective service from 10mb upwards.
The Gold standard is a bench mark that all internet providers are striving to achieve for the majority of Workspace business centres in the coming years. Wired Score certified commercial properties give new and growing companies peace of mind that their telecoms capabilities are reliable, up-to-date and futureproof. The telecoms and property sectors work with Wired Score to create a rigorous set of standards in order to achieve this award.
The Internet is clearly among the top three most important factors for tenants who are searching for office space, along with cost and location. Up until now there has been limited information available to tenants about the quality of internet connectivity in office spaces. Wired Certification provides that transparency and access to information to tenants which in turns gives prospective tenants the information they need to make an informed decision.
