We're delighted to announce that Metal Box Factory has been rated Wired Certified Platinum by WiredScore, where major web browser, Mozilla has recently taken business space.

The Wired Certification programme, launched by the Mayor of London in November 2015, and acts as a trusted mark for buildings independently certified as offering cutting-edge digital infrastructure for business tenants. It’s a mark which provides landlords and developers with a benchmark from which they can improve and market their buildings’ connectivity standards.

At the time of writing, the Wired Certified Platinum rating is held by only six other commercial buildings across the UK, giving Metal Box Factory customers the ultimate assurance that they have access to world-leading, secure and reliabile connectivity, future-proofing their business needs.

Connectivity: a top priority for New and Growing Companies

James Friedenthal, head of corporate development, Workspace, said: “Connectivity is a top priority for fast-growing, digitally dependent businesses and this fantastic recognition from WiredScore is testament to our commitment as a business to providing our customers with the highest quality workspaces.

“Through the managed fibre network owned and delivered by Excell Group, we are able to deliver reliable, dedicated fibre connectivity to each of our customers in Metal Box Factory.

“We are proud to have been awarded the Wired Certified Platinum rating and will continue to invest in the technological infrastructure of our buildings for our customers.”

At Workspace we know that connectivity is of the utmost importance to our growing network of New and Growing Companies. Our investment in state-of-the-art infrastructure, as well as a managed connected services solution – delivered in partnership with Excell Group – is testament to this. In addition, the unique Dot11 platform provides building-wide Wi-Fi, allowing you to work how and where you want, both in the building and across our wider portfolio.

Workspace welcomes Mozilla to Metal Box Factory

It’s this flexibility that has enabled us to attract some of London’s most digitally disruptive, fast-growing businesses. Most recently, Mozilla, creator of the world-renowned Firefox web browser, secured a 3,200 sq. ft. office in Metal Box Factory.

Rob Middleton, director, WorldWide Workplace Resources, Mozilla, said: “We are really pleased with our exciting new office in Metal Box Factory.

“In particular, the connectivity here is fantastic and it meets the very challenging connectivity demands that we have at Mozilla.”

Since undergoing major refurbishment in 2014, Metal Box Factory has become a landmark business destination for New and Growing Companies in Southwark and is now home to more than 150 businesses, notably Moonpig, Joseph Joseph and the renowned Hixter restaurant.
