Posted: 3rd March 2016

The regional judging panel of the British Council of Offices (BCO) visited our Glasgow office as part of the adjudication process for finalists of this year’s BCO Awards.

The five strong panel wanted to speak to various members of the design team to understand the key issues of the building design and personally inspect the implemented solutions.The award submission was entered on the back of our highly successful launch of the Space Solutions office in Glasgow. The reason for the final agreed design and the subsequent interest of the BCO judging panel was to understand how we had incorporated great collaborative working space, a feature that Director Derek Binnie is always keen to discuss.

“Businesses face an increasing challenge to deal with changing work styles, whether flexible working, collaborative meeting space, etc. A significant number of our teams work across our five offices, so it is important to be able to physically accommodate them when and where required. It is also vital that we support the inter-team collaboration requirements. Our Glasgow office design not only practically supports the business needs, but also showcases how a well-designed office can positively impact working practices. The staff have found the new environment significantly more enjoyable to work in. The benefits of this enhanced working experience is something we are keen to share with all potential clients.”

The winners of the Scottish BCO event, hosted by Dougie Donnelly on the 15th April, will be automatically submitted for the BCO UK awards later in the year.
