Winners of BCO workplace awards announced

04 October 2017

Awards presented to seven of the country's best workplaces have been announced by the British Council for Offices (BCO).

Its National Awards are designed to recognise the best examples of office design and functionality, with the finalists consisting of those who had won their category in the 2017 Regional Awards.

The entry judged to be Best of the Best was Sky Central, in Isleworth, Middlesex, which also won the Corporate Workplace category.

Located within the Sky landscaped campus in West London, it provides workspace for 3,500 of the Sky workforce and consists of 18 200-person workspace 'neighbourhoods'.

It was also commended for its "vast array of services and amenities", according to the BCO statement, which includes six restaurants and cafes, a 200-seat state-of-the-art cinema, a 200-person event space and a technology lounge.

There were just two winners located outside the Greater London area, namely Concordia Works, Leeds (pictured), which won the Projects up to 1,500 sq m category, and the Birmingham City Council office, winner of Test of Time.

The full list of winners included the following:
Best of the Best and Corporate Workplace: Sky Central, Isleworth, Middlesex
Commercial Workplace: 8 Finsbury Circus, London
Refurbished/Recycled Workplace: 20 Eastbourne Terrace, London
Innovation: Sea Containers, London
Fit Out of Workplace: The Estée Lauder Companies, London
Projects up to 1,500 sq.m: Concordia Works, Leeds

BCO national judging panel chair Nigel Clark described this year's winners as "a study in how Britain has maintained its position at the forefront of the global office sector".

Deadline for entry to the 2018 BCO Regional and National Awards is 24 November.
