McKay Securities – 329 Bracknell – twiindata landlord

McKay Securities, taken over by Workspace group in 2022, is a commercial property investment company specialising in the development and refurbishment of quality buildings within established and proven markets of London and South East England. As part of a webinar on how landlords can future-proof their buildings and improve their marketability, Richard Morgan, Asset Manager at McKay Securities discussed their working partnership with technologywithin.

Alongside fast fibre connectivity and WiFi, technologywithin also delivers twiindata landlord, their managed internet solution for multi-tenant workspace, to McKay Securities. twiindata landlord provides a resilient, reliable internet connection alongside an easy-to-use client interface and additional revenue generating opportunities.

Providing connectivity transformed the McKay proposition

Richard Morgan explained that historically at 1 Crown Square, McKay’s 50,000 sq.ft. building in Woking (currently home to 27 tenants), that a variety of connectivity solutions were used, from dial up to mobile dongles. The common factor was low satisfaction with the slow and often unreliable connections.

“As owner/managers of our buildings, bringing in technologywithin has allowed us to improve our oer and have one point of contact for connectivity. Many of our clients are SMEs, who don’t have the expertise in house, so to be able to offer them expert tech advice is important. The relationship offers us value, expertise and partnership and creates reassurance for the occupier.”

Making the space more marketable

Richard believes that the service has helped the marketing of McKay’s buildings.

“Being able to tell occupiers on a tour that there is connectivity already in the building that can be switched on promptly is music to their ears, as many have had bad experiences before dealing with wayleaves and delays installing comms.”

He continued to explain that when smaller occupiers are searching for offices, they are doing so alongside their day job and often find it time consuming and stressful, so in addition to the core offering of a well-positioned and well-managed building, ready to go connectivity helps make business space decisions easier.

When asked what advice he would offer to other landlords, Richard said that the connectivity service had been well received, stimulated new lettings and increased the speed of lettings. Many tenants had told of bad experiences trying to install telecoms in new leased offices, so why not avoid that?

Not providing connectivity generally results in multiple fibre connections to the building, creating damage and chaos in risers. Further, delays with wayleaves can make tenant comms installs take months.

twiindata landlord delivers the perfect solution for managing connectivity

Edward Crabtree – Director, Business Development at technologywithin said:

“We manage the installation of the main and backup fibre connections to the building, saving landlords time. The back-up line provides resilience and improved reliability for the connection. The twiindata solution also provides constant monitoring, security and management of connectivity performance remotely by our team, taking away the responsibility from the building team.”
