Science park setting standard elsewhere.

A SCIENCE park on Teesside has been described as a flagship for the region in an independent survey of the Information Communications Technology (ICT) support it offers businesses.

The Wilton Centre, near Redcar, has been awarded Leading Edge status following a survey by the ict active assessment scheme of both the infrastructure and services it provides. Ict active is the national standard for the provision of ICT in office buildings and is based on a British Standards Institute Publicly Available Specification (PAS 700) published in spring 2009 which specifies the requirements for ICT facilities and services in the workplace. It surveys what is provided by a building and is designed to promote office spaces that have a high quality ICT offering.

There are several layers to the award and The Wilton Centre has achieved the highest accreditation possible, ict active Leading Edge.

Liz Wallis, managing director of ict active said: "This represents that they are a flagship building in their region with a very high standard of ICT as, at this time, there are fewer than 10 properties in Yorkshire and Humber who have achieved Leading Edge.

"It also represents ict active moving across the region and we delighted to have the Wilton Centre as our key property in the Tees Valley and North East region."
