Northern Launch – BCO Guide to Fit Out

The BCO Guide to Fit Out was first published in 2003 and has proved to be one of the most popular of the BCO guides, reflecting its continued usefulness to the occupier as demands, designs and needs develop and change.

This seminar will demonstrate how the guide has evolved – reflecting significant changes in design practice and the intensification of the use of office space – and will present the issues of productivity, value for money and sustainability.

Meet some of the team behind this new Guide, learn how it complements the BCO Guide to Specification 2009 and find out what the "X factor" is that defines the ultimate success of a fit out.

Venue – PZ Cussons
Regional winner of the 2011 BCO Fit Out of Workplace Award

PZ Cussons

This office is different from the majority, from the layout of the floors – with a central zone meeting space for staff, with inbuilt flexibility to adapt the spaces when required – to the amazing feeling of light and space.

"PZ Cussons is a forward looking company which aspired to use its relocation as a catalyst for change. The fit out truly demonstrates this."
