Industry professionals from CBRE and Arup are among the latest to sign up to WiredScore’s training programme.

Launching across North America and the UK this week, the WiredScore Accredited Professional programme will teach participants to advise clients on how to assess, improve, benchmark and promote buildings with strong connectivity and smart building features.

The company, which is behind the WiredScore and SmartScore rating schemes, already has 650 APs across 27 countries. The programme started in France in 2017.

WiredScore has signed up 100 people from across the industry in the UK alone. These include professionals from Aecom, Cushman & Wakefield and Openreach.

Created with engineers, consultants and property managers in mind, the programme has four specialties:

  • WiredScore AP: Office (development)
  • WiredScore AP: Office (occupied)
  • WiredScore AP: Home
  • SmartScore AP: Office.

Potential participants can take a quiz on WiredScore’s website to find out which course is best suited to their needs.

George Roberts, head of UK & Ireland at Cushman & Wakefield, said: “Our partnership with WiredScore enables us to provide world-leading services to our clients, drawing on global best practices for in-building technology.

“I’m excited to see how our relationship with WiredScore through the AP programme and other initiatives will continue to add value to our client offering in the years to come.”

William Newton, president and MD at WiredScore, said: “The launch of our Accredited Professional programme in the UK is a significant step for WiredScore in realising our mission to make the world’s buildings smarter and better connected.

“Partnering with some of the most progressive and dynamic organistations in the real estate sector, we are excited to be working alongside like-minded professionals who share our ambitions and are equally committed to realising our aims to set the standard for technology in the built world.”
