British Council for Offices
The British Council for Offices (BCO) was established in 1990 and is Britain's leading forum for discussion and debate about the issues affecting the office sector.
Its mission is to research, develop and communicate best practice in all aspects of the office sector.
Its members are organisations involved in creating, acquiring or occupying office space, including; architects, lawyers, surveyors, financial institutions and public agencies. It advances the collective understanding of its members, enabling them to work together to create more effective office space.
BCO is governed by a board of elected members, and day to day operations are managed by staff based at 78-79 Leadenhall Street in London. A management executive meets quarterly, and in conjunction with the Chief Executive and other officers, is responsible for the management of BCO's affairs.
BCO holds an annual conference and a regional and national awards programme, and hosts a library of research reports.
