WiredScore, the company behind the world’s leading rating system for technological capacity in commercial buildings, and First Potomac Realty Trust announced today that TenThreeTwenty, a Class A office building located in Columbia, MD has achieved the designation of Wired Certified Gold. TenThreeTwenty is the first property in Columbia to achieve Wired Certification, the first and only international standard for rating internet connectivity in commercial office buildings. Three Flint Hill, a Class A office building in Fairfax, VA has also received the Wired Certified Gold distinction, confirming the property’s best-in-class connectivity infrastructure. Wired Certification is based upon a review of an office building’s connectivity, technological infrastructure and readiness to adopt emerging technologies.
WiredScore is the pioneer behind the Wired Certification standard that evaluates and distinguishes best-in-class Internet connectivity in commercial buildings. The Wired Certification is a standard trusted by tenants internationally to verify that buildings have been independently evaluated and certified to provide the Internet infrastructure that businesses require to thrive.
In pursuing Wired Certification, First Potomac’s properties were subjected to a comprehensive certification process conducted by a team of leading technicians. Upon completion of an on-site audit that evaluates a building’s number of available internet service providers, infrastructure redundancy, connection access points, and readiness to improve connectivity, a Wired Certification level is assigned based on the official standards developed by WiredScore and its advisory board.
TenThreeTwenty and Three Flint Hill have been independently evaluated to confirm the presence of highly advanced technological infrastructure that is essential for reliable, redundant Internet connections, earning Wired Certified Gold designations. These certifications confirm the building’s ability to provide tenants with features of connectivity that matter most to tenants: access to multiple high-speed fiber providers, multiple points of entry for redundancy, and additional riser capacity to accommodate future internet service providers.
