Vastint Poland achieved WiredScore Platinum certification for the K2 office building in Gdynia. WiredScore evaluated the property, examining factors related to infrastructure sophistication, operational efficiency and, finally, the building’s ability to provide users with optimal connectivity solutions. K2 is the first in the Tri-City area, and the 61st building in Poland certified under this system.
“K2 has joined the league of nationally and internationally recognized WiredScore certified buildings. In today’s world, digital connectivity is critical to more than just the way we work. In an increasingly technology-driven economy, connectivity has also become one of the most important criteria for tenants choosing office space. Our property provides a best-in-class connectivity infrastructure, and by leveraging advanced technologies, we are able to meet the changing needs of the building’s current and future employees.”, says David Pettersson, Senior Project Manager of Vastint Poland.
Vastint has partnered with WiredScore to measure, improve and evaluate the digital connectivity solutions used in the K2 office building. Finally, the building achieved WiredScore Platinum certification. Among the aspects that are important from the point of view of tenants and user experience, two solutions are noteworthy. First, tenants can use the services of as many as six independent providers (fibre or fixed wireless), thus having a choice of competitive rates. Another advantage is the separation of telecommunications equipment from other utilities, such as electricity, gas, or water, which reduces the risk of Internet interruptions, and limiting staff access to tenant-serving equipment improves data security and lessens the possibility of accidental damage.
K2 is a six-story office building located near the Wzgorze sw. Maksymiliana interchange on Kielecka Street in Gdynia. It offers more than 11,400 m2 of A-class office space. The office building with an intimate lobby, which was designed as a space for informal business meetings, is distinguished by its sophisticated architecture referring to Gdynia’s modernism. A two-level garage hall houses 136 parking spaces and locker rooms for cyclists. C.Hartwig, an international shipping company, has located its headquarters in the building, and PZU Zdrowie, a multi-specialist medical facility, also operates here.
WiredScore is the only globally recognized digital connectivity rating system. It enables the understanding, improvement, comparison, and promotion of buildings’ digital infrastructure and supports today’s need for cutting-edge technology in real estate by providing the definitive standard for commercial buildings’ digital connectivity. Since its launch in New York in 2013, the program has so far certified more than 60 million m2 of commercial office space in 10 countries around the world.
