One of CIBC SQUARE’s buildings is now SmartScore certified, making it one of the smartest and most engaging environments to work in, while delivering an exceptional user experience, driving cost efficiency, and meeting high standards of sustainability.
The 81 Bay Street office tower, which is currently under construction by the builder EllisDon, is one of the first three Canadian buildings to achieve this SmartScore Platinum rating. SmartScore is a globally recognized smart building certification developed by WiredScore to champion cutting-edge technology in real estate. The accreditation sets a global standard for the world’s smartest buildings, delivering outstanding outcomes for all users through digital technology to exceed their evolving expectations.
CIBC SQUARE, comprising two innovative office buildings, which are 241.39 m (792 ft), and 237.73 m (780 ft) tall, will offer unique office and collaborative spaces. At 49 and 50 storeys, they will offer expansive views of Lake Ontario and Toronto’s skyline.
Noteworthy features of CIBC SQUARE leading to this designation include seamless digital access and hosting capabilities, access to digital maps of the building’s amenity spaces through the in-building app, and extensive cybersecurity policies.
The project is designed by architecture firms, WilkinsonEyre and Adamson Associates, to exceed mechanical, electrical, and security expectations. The complex also attained Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum Core & Shell certification, as well as WELL Platinum Certification.
“CIBC SQUARE is proud to be one of the first Canadian properties recognized with the SmartScore designation, alongside the 25 properties globally, which further underscores our commitment to creating a forward-thinking and intentional smart building,” says David Hoffman, general manager at CIBC SQUARE. “With pillars like wellness, safety, community, connectivity, and sustainability becoming increasingly important for office tenants, our goal is to continue delivering a space that meets those criteria in the highest form. The SmartScore certification signifies CIBC SQUARE’s commitment to its people-first approach.”
