Union Plaza has become the first office building in Aberdeen to be awarded the Wired Certification Gold Rating in recognition of its digital connectivity and infrastructure.
WiredScore is an international scheme that rates a building’s infrastructure, connectivity and technological capacity.
The gold rating is achieved by office buildings which have been designed to incorporate reliable, flexible connectivity features that meet and exceed tenants’ digital requirements.
“Union Plaza’s gold rating demonstrates that WiredScore has recognised the building’s owner LGIM Real Assets (Legal & General) as one of the UK’s most forward-thinking landlords,” said Nina Friedrich, Partnership Manager at WiredScore. “They have realised the immense value of investing in flexible and reliable digital infrastructure to provide a superior experience for tenants.”
The building recently underwent an extensive £1.75million refurbishment in response to demand for more flexible, high quality workspaces in Aberdeen city centre.
The refurbishment included a new business lounge at reception, flexible meeting rooms and break-out areas to create ultra-modern and multi-purpose working spaces. It also included investment in Union Plaza’s digital infrastructure so that it not only meets current hi-tech requirements but will continue to do so well into the future.
“Achieving a Wired Certified Gold Rating confirms our commitment to providing the very best facilities and the highest level of service to our tenants,” said Dan Smith, director and head of office at Savills, which is marketing the suites with Knight Frank. “This certification is a trusted benchmark for commercial property, which assures existing and potential occupiers that they will benefit from excellent digital connectivity.
“The refurbishment of Union Plaza provides existing and future tenants with the very highest quality of office accommodation in what is one of the most desirable business addresses in the city. Being named as the only office building in Aberdeen to achieve gold rating reinforces the outstanding level of service we provide for the businesses that are located here.”
There are a variety of letting options at Union Plaza, ranging from the fully fitted, furnished 2,335 sq. ft. capsule suites to larger suites measuring up to 8,453 sq. ft which are fully refurbished and ready for occupier’s fit out.
