by WiredScore
BOSTON, July 17, 2015 — Beacon Capital Partners, LLC, a leading commercial
office investor and manager, announced today that the majority of its Class A
office properties located throughout the US have earned Wired Certifications of
Silver or above through WiredScore,
the
first and only provider of a standardized rating system designed to identify and
certify commercial buildings with the fastest and most reliable internet
connections.

Wired Certification assists prospective
office tenants in making more informed leasing decisions. The Wired
Certification standards, used to measure and rate the internet connectivity of
commercial office buildings, were established by experts in the technology,
telecommunications and real estate industries, and have been adopted by many of
the nation’s leading owners.
 
“Our goal is to provide our tenants with the
highest-quality services and infrastructure,” said Sara Shank, Beacon Capital
Partners Managing Director. “Companies require enhanced connectivity to conduct
business effectively. That is why we are pleased to be the first company to
partner nationally with WiredScore to evaluate — and improve if necessary —
connectivity levels and to provide the best service possible for tenants.”  
The criteria for Wired Certification include
building connectivity, infrastructure and readiness of a building to upgrade in
the future. Buildings undergo a thorough review by a technical team to validate
the accuracy and completeness of connectivity data.
Currently nearly 90% of Beacon’s US portfolio has
earned a rating of Wired Certified Silver or higher. Beacon intends to attain a
silver certification level or higher for all current and future properties it
owns.
