RESEARCH

The BCO's research programme provides real benefit to our members and wider industry.

Our remit is to develop and communicate best practice, analyse developments and stimulate new thinking on the design, development and occupation of offices across the UK. Each year the BCO releases a regular series of research reports, best practice guides, briefing notes and discussion papers.

The BCO's research programme equally supports our public affairs work enabling an evidence based approach in respect of policy development and consultation. This activity is however significantly enhanced by membership consultation and representation.
