West 4 Business Hub A, located in Wrocław is now certified WiredScore Platinum. Solida Capital, an investment and development company that entered the Polish Office market recently by acquiring West 4 Business Hub A from Echo Investment decided to upgrade this asset to the best digital and technological connectivity standard. This opens a new chapter for a global certification for technology advancement and innovation in real estate in Poland and proves the value that investors see in future-proofing buildings.
When West 4 Business Hub A was acquired, the project held the BREEAM environmental certificate with an Excellent rating which remains in place. Now, it is not only a green sustainable building, but it’s also future-proofed to provide the best digital connectivity for its tenants together with complying with the best practices in terms of technological solutions and backup plans to ensure that businesses can operate in case of unexpected events.
“Our focus is to provide our tenants with top-tier solutions in the tech space that enable our office buildings to be more efficient, safe and advanced in terms of innovative solutions. We are very pleased that West 4 Business Hub A achieved the highest grade (Platinum) of certification and we see it as a recognition of all the investments done in this area. Practically, our tenants are assured that the building connectivity is of the best quality on the market, complying with the most modern backup and contingency plans in case of unexpected events. Solida Capital is committed to continually investing and implementing green and smart tech in its office buildings in line with the ESG company policy,“ said Fabio Melis, Manager at Solida Capital Europe.
Colliers, a smart building consultant, who supported Solida in assessing, improving the digital connectivity and certifying West 4 Business Hub A describes the process that allowed them to achieve a Platinum level within only a couple of months: “Solida has the ambition to keep their assets on the highest possible level to deliver the best experience to its tenants. Together with Solida, we strategically chose the improvements to make, based on their impact on the building and its flexibility for tenants. We did not just look for points to add, but for significant improvements. Through the process of improvements, we worked closely with the Facility and Property Managers to make sure we keep expense, quality and time of delivery under control. Finally, we audited the building in the final stage to complete documentation for the certification,” said Renata Hartle, Director of Technological Solutions in Colliers.
