Finalists in British Council for Offices Awards 2019


Industry News

We are excited to share that we have been chosen as finalists for two of our projects in this year’s British Council for Offices (BCO) Awards.

Withers, a leading international law firm, is a finalist in the Fit-out of Workplace category while chapmanbdsp, who specialise in building services engineering and environmental design, is a finalist in the Projects Up to 1500m2 category.

Wellbeing was an important part of the design for both projects. Withers used the move as an opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing for employees by introducing agile working – the first law firm in the City to go fully agile. chapmanbdsp introduced a garden path which circulates the floorplate, maximising the benefit of natural light for all.

The BCO defines excellence in office space and their Awards Programme provides public recognition for top quality design and functionality and a benchmark for excellence in workplaces. Read more about the Awards here.
