Equilibrium 2 – the first building awarded WiredScore Platinum in Romania

Equilibrium 2, part of the Equilibrium complex developed by Skanska in the north of Bucharest, has become the first building in Romania to achieve WiredScore certification at the highest ‘Platinum’ level.

The complex has also been LEED ‘Platinum’ and Access4You ‘Silver’ certified and has Net Zero Carbon Building pre-certification.

At a time when technology is more important than ever, connectivity isn’t nice to have, it’s a prerequisite. The speed of change of technology always outpaces the speed of change of the digital infrastructure in a building, which is confirmed by the fact that over 70 pct of internet outages are caused by problems with the physical infrastructure inside buildings. We are very proud of yet another premiere we bring to Romania in our projects: the first WiredScore certification and in top of that, with the highest certification level.

The certification of Equilibrium 2 positions Skanska in Romania as early adopters in a rapidly evolving market. They are also not only leading the way in Romania but also within Skanska across CEE. This forward-thinking approach means that every new development Skanska brings to the market is equipped to meet the needs of even the most advanced international tenant.

WiredScore certification recognizes and promotes best-in-class digitally connected buildings globally and helps increase the value of the building for both potential tenants and future owners.

The widely recognized WiredScore certification seal is a trusted symbol that identifies buildings that have been independently certified to provide the best-in-class connectivity infrastructure that businesses require to thrive.
