Aberdeen Asset Management’s The Cursitor Building has become one of the first buildings in London’s Midtown to achieve the Wired Certified Platinum for Developments & Redevelopments rating for digital connectivity.

The newly redeveloped office on Chancery Lane comprises 65,000 sq ft of Grade A office space in the heart of Midtown.
The building is located on the Eastern side of Chancery Lane, and offers high quality office space over lower ground, ground and six upper floors, with roof terraces on the top two floors.
Estelle Hunt of Aberdeen Asset Management commented, “We are delighted to have secured a Wired Certified Platinum rating for the development. Connectivity is a key driver in today’s market, and has played a pivotal role in the development of this first class building. The attention to detail on connectivity will ensure that the building is future proofed to meet tenant connectivity needs.”
The Wired Certification provides developers and landlords with a trusted mark to help them understand what necessary investments are needed to achieve and enable them to demonstrate best-in-class connectivity infrastructure.
Given the important role of technology in business, Wired Certification also highlights forward thinking property owners willing to supply their tenants with the highest quality services.
This independent benchmark also provides greater transparency for occupiers to help them make an informed decision before signing a lease.
The building’s connectivity highlights include:

  • Two diverse points of entry on separate sides of the buildings and two diverse communications risers; this allows tenants to create multiple diverse internet cabling routes throughout the building in order to minimise the risk of disruption to their internet connection should any of the cable routes be damaged.
  • Backup power generators for comms equipment and space for tenants to place back up power equipment put in place by the landlord. If there is a power failure the generator will kick in to reduce any internet "down time" which allows businesses to continue operating.
  • The landlord has a Standard Wayleave Agreement on file and Vodafone is already present in the building. Having pre-set legal agreements in place can expedite tenants getting set up with internet when they move in; Vodafone fibre already being present in the building is a time-saving alternative to having to bring in a new provider and the installation time required, and showcases the landlord as connectivity and tenant focused.
