Some things in life come around quickly, the changing of the clocks, birthdays, Christmas music in supermarkets – and the British Council for Offices (BCO) Awards deadline. Just four weeks remain for wannabe winners to submit their applications, with the call for entry closing at 5pm on Friday 29th November 2019. The BCO claims that its National Awards sets the standard for excellence across the office sector in the UK, attracting over 1,300 property professionals on the evening, as they hope to take home the National Award for their category. Entrants will be judged by a regional panel of judges in the Spring, with each local winner going on to compete for the National title in October.
Projects can be entered into the following categories:
- ‘Commercial Workplace’
- ‘Corporate Workplace’
- ‘Refurbished/ Recycled Workplace’
- ‘Fit Out of Workplace’
- ‘Projects up to 1,500’
The BCO regional judging panels will also have the power to award an Innovation prize, to projects that have gone above and beyond to provide truly unique solutions for their clients’ sustainability, wellbeing or technology challenges. Winners for this category are nominated by the judging panel from any of the above categories.
