Office building becomes Canada's first to earn Wired Certification
Toronto-Dominion Centre has become Canada's first existing building to achieve certification under the comprehensive Wired Certification standard. Toronto-Dominion Centre received platinum wired certification, the highest possible ranking, in all six of its towers, according to a release.
Operated by WiredScore, Wired Certification is the internationally recognized digital connectivity ratings system for commercial real estate that helps landlords design and promote their buildings' digital connectivity to tenants.
"We earned this certification through our ongoing investments in innovative technology and connectivity, as part of our commitment to delivering significant value for our tenants and providing the ultimate environment for the productivity and competitiveness of their businesses," said David Hoffman, general manager for Toronto-Dominion Centre.
The achievement of platinum certification attests to Toronto-Dominion Centre being best-in-class across all features of connectivity that matter most to tenants: number and quality of internet service providers, redundancy and resiliency of telecom infrastructure, ease of installation and capacity to readily support new telecom services. It also certifies that all six towers can support current and future tenants with the most demanding technology requirements, the release said.
"With the growing demand for digital connectivity in the workplace, tenants expect uninterrupted internet connectivity, consistent cell service and reliable wi-fi to support a flexible workforce, open office plans, high levels of streaming data and large files," Hoffman said. "Tenants need to know that the environment is secure and can be supported, even in the event of a power outage. Platinum Wired Certification demonstrates that Toronto-Dominion Centre's digital infrastructure can offer all of this and more."
