Southworks office development has been named the world’s smartest building.

The office scheme competed at the 2021 Futureproof Awards (People’s Choice category) with schemes such as EDGE Olympic in Amsterdam and Windmill Green in Manchester, thanks to its use of data to create the best possible user environment.

The landmark office development, MiddleCap’s first in the UK, will be an exemplar smart building when it completes in June 2021. It will provide an ideal working environment that enhances users’ health and wellbeing whilst optimising its sustainable credentials.

Southworks achieved WiredScore Gold certification by meeting criteria in four key categories: infrastructure, wireless, power and connectivity. The assessment praises Southwork’s sufficient capacity and flexibility for tenant needs and highlights the vast measurements taken against potential service disruption.

Tomáš Jurdák, Head of Real Estate at MiddleCap, said: “The safety and wellbeing of employees is now the top priority for businesses across the world, so pushing ahead with technological innovations is crucial to the future of offices. Southworks was designed and built around the natural elements and natural environment supported by top-notch technology.”

“We are thrilled to see Southworks achieving these awards and ratings, proving that our first UK project is setting a benchmark for commercial space in the city and we hope that others in the UK and across Europe will follow suit.”
