Kennedy Wilson's Capital Dock Residence development has achieved the WiredScore Platinum certification - the first Build to Rent scheme in Ireland to do so.

Real estate investment company Kennedy Wilson has recently announced that its Capital Dock Residence Build to Rent development has been awarded the WiredScore Platinum certification.

The residential portion of Capital Dock has won the prestigious award and lies within one of the largest mixed-use developments ever created in Ireland.

Currently the only occupied residential building in Ireland to hold the Platinum certification, 190-unit Capital Dock Residence was recognised for offering digital connectivity and infrastructure that ensures a seamless experience for residents.

“This achievement acknowledges Kennedy Wilson’s position as a leader in innovation and recognises the vast technological and digital connectivity advancements that Capital Dock Residences offers its residents. The road to WiredScore Platinum certification for homes was grounded in a rigorous evaluation process that focused on five essential aspects of modern living: master planning, infrastructure, services, monitoring and innovation. Every step of the way we were impressed with the excellence of the building’s design, and Kennedy Wilson’s commitment to investing in future-proof technology for their residents.”
