The accreditation acts as a trusted benchmark for technological capacity.

The bronze framed 110,000 sq ft Number One Kirkstall Forge has scored Platinum – the highest possible level – and enters a club of buildings which includes the Empire State Building in New York, The Shard in London and MediaCityUK in Salford.

Nick Lee, head of commercial development for builders CEG, said: “Kirkstall Forge was once at the forefront of the industrial revolution and it is now at the forefront of the digital revolution.”
