SmartScore Sets A Standard Smart Buildings

Commercial buildings have shifted their focus in recent years to become more environmentally-conscious and wellness-oriented.

This has led many to self-identify as a “smart building,” which could mean a myriad of things. To combat the vagueness of this term, WiredScore recently launched its SmartScore certification.

Using this model, WiredScore hopes to bring a general consensus into what should be deemed a smart building, which has been used broadly in recent years. By having a concrete definition, landlords can better communicate what their buildings feature and the investments they have made in order to create a true smart building.

“Digital transformation in real estate has moved at an accelerated pace since the global pandemic,” said Richard Fennell, head of property and asset management at JLL Australia. “Smart building aspects such as contactless technology, communication tools and data, is allowing investors and tenants greater certainty over their decision-making, as well as providing competitive advantage.”

For years, landlords were trying to identify their assets as smart, but the industry had not defined it together. For instance, a building that features an iPad at reception may consider itself a smart building, according to Eden Dwek, director of expansion at WiredScore.

WiredScore has certified over 65 million square meters of commercial office space and now has 70 buildings across seven countries that have signed up for SmartScore.

SmartScore specifically describes a smart building as one that provides optimal outcomes for users using digital technology. There are four outcomes users care about the most: inspiring user experience, a sustainable building, a cost-efficient building and a future-proof design.
