Upcoming Hong Kong Office Bldg Bags 2 Platinum Certifications
HONG KONG – Thanks to its superb digital connectivity and advanced smart technology, Henderson Land’s highly-anticipated office building at Murray Road in Central has clinched the highest rating under WiredScore and SmartScore, according to a press release published on Media OutReach on Wednesday (23 Wednesday, SGT).
The Henderson office tower is touted as the city’s first commercial property to obtain platinum certification under both WiredScore and SmartScore. This makes the Hong Kong office property on par with famed global landmarks like New York’s Empire State Building and the Shard in London, both of which have already obtained the double platinum certifications from both accrediting bodies.
In particular, Henderson Land’s office building clinched the highest rating under WiredScore for its high resiliency level on telecommunication services and being future-proof with a unique triple lead-in design, high-speed ring connection backbone, and TownGas Telecom’s Glass-along-Gas technology.
Under SmartScore, the commercial property was recognised for its technological capabilities and its ability to provide its occupants with an exceptional experience.
Moreover, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are installed throughout The Henderson to maintain optimal performance in indoor climate and air quality. The office building is also powered by an Integrated Tenant Experience Analytic Platform (ITEAP), which provides real-time data to property managers via a dashboard to help them run the commercial property, including monitoring the office tower’s ESG performance.
“We are thrilled to achieve both WiredScore and SmartScore Platinum for The Henderson, which are further recognition of our leadership in designing smart buildings and setting the standards of modern-day property development,” said Henderson Land’s Senior Deputy General Manager of portfolio leasing department, Kristine Li.
“The Henderson is the embodiment of our ambitions to build a future workplace that allows great ideas and smart business to flourish from within. Apart from international business leaders such as Christie’s and Carlyle who have already cast a vote of confidence by becoming The Henderson’s tenants, we welcome like-minded business pioneers and leaders in their respective industries to embark on a shared journey towards a sustainable future with us at The Henderson.”
Before the latest certifications, The Henderson had already secured many accolades. These include Grand Award for projects under construction/or design at the 2021 Green Building Awards, in addition to Platinum pre-certifications under WELL Building Standard (WELL) and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).
