TFT Partner Alistair Allison has been appointed as Chairman of the British Council of Offices (BCO) Judging Panel for the BCO Awards across SW England, Thames Valley and S Wales. Alistair’s appointment follows his three-year tenure as a BCO judge.
The BCO Awards are widely respected within the commercial property sector as they display the strength of British office design and illustrate a combination of excellence from the clarity of purpose in the brief, ingenuity of product, clever design solutions and delivery on time and within budget.
The judging process is informed and rigorous, helping the BCO Awards programme to become one of the most prestigious accolades in the commercial property industry.
The drive for excellence in office space across the region will continue with Alistair at the helm.
