SmartScore certification: The Elbtower becomes a smart building pioneer
In mid-April 2023, the Elbtower project in Hamburg was awarded the SmartScore pre-certification. This means that the building project on the Elbbrücken hits a milestone in terms of digital infrastructure and best connectivity even before completion. With this coveted certificate, the Elbtower represents a new generation of smart buildings.
“User comfort, data transparency, efficiency in daily business – the Elbtower sets new standards for the workplace of the future. This has now also been confirmed by the SmartScore rating. Studies show that four out of five office workers want an advanced office with the latest technological possibilities. So the pre-certificate is one more reason for companies to choose the Elbtower,” says Torben Vogelgesang, branch manager of Signa Real Estate Management Germany GmbH in Hamburg.
What does SmartScore mean?
SmartScore is the globally recognized certification for smart buildings from WiredScore, a company which rates office buildings in terms of their user functionalities and technological foundations. Broadband speed, network security and availability of technical support teams are all key aspects for the rating. In short, the rating is important for companies looking for offices that offer an exceptional user experience, are cost-efficient and future-proof, and which meet high sustainability requirements too.

Highest rating for the Elbtower
The SmartScore pre-certified rating is the basis for the subsequent WiredScore certification. This high-rise project in Hamburg’s Hafencity is aiming for the Platinum top rating – a seal of approval that requires exceptional performance in all aspects of the digital infrastructure. And that completely changes the idea of New Work, too.
