KingSett Capital Announces WiredScore Portfolio Certification

March 08, 2023

WiredScore, the company setting the global standard for technology in the built world, has today announced 39 global landlords and KingSett Capital is proud to be listed. 

Technology is a core part of KingSett’s strategy, and we are committed to delivering a best-in-class, technology-enabled experience across our buildings, today and in the future. The future is smart, and smart buildings help us deliver superior technology integration while achieving operational efficiency.

As the first Canadian landlord to commit to WiredScore Portfolio, KingSett has certified over 6 million square feet of office space in Canada, with an additional 5 buildings committed to certification and all future developments are committed to targeting the same certification.  

We believe this certification provides a number of tangible benefits as we look to make our portfolio future-ready with technological infrastructure that will create dynamic and resilient spaces. In addition, this certification provides us with the dedicated tools to measure, improve and promote connectivity performance in a clear, efficient and impactful manner.

Arie Barendrecht, Founder and CEO, WiredScore, commented:

“If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that we have all come to expect best-in-class levels of connectivity in our buildings, enabling a seamless transition between the home, office and back again. As a result, we have seen first-hand just how technology is fast becoming a core pillar of how our clients are delivering their portfolios. Yet the macro environment and the pace of change of technology means it’s never been more challenging to create tech-enabled spaces.

We are therefore proud to be working with some of the world’s most forward-looking landlords and developers who not only understand the benefits of a technology-first approach in their real estate, but are constantly improving it to create a first-class experience for their building users. By implementing sound digital infrastructure as a minimum requirement across their portfolios, our clients are not only creating dynamic and resilient spaces people really want to be in, but they are sustainably future-proofing their buildings for generations to come.”
