Noted as 'one of the most inspiring regeneration projects in the north of England and potential the UK' by BCO is Number One Kirkstall Forge. This is the first development within Yorkshire to achieve a 'Platinum' certification by the Wired Score as well as achieving an EPC 'A' & BREEAM 'Excellent' accreditation. Winning the National Commercial Workplace Award 2018 has set Leeds in the headlights as they bid to secure the Department for Transport support for a new train station. The BCO panel was wowed by the persistence and time put into listening to stakeholders and residents thoughts regarding the area and its needs. 

"The project features a site-wide transport plan, which includes new bus and rail services along with enhanced footpath and cycleway connectivity, a car share scheme and cycle and scooter hire." - BCO

London National Winner

Refurbished / Recycled Workplace Award | Plexal Here East, QE Olympic Park 
Products Installed: Security Lanes & Revolving Doors |   Architects:  Hawkins \ Brown

Utilising existing buildings that formed part of the 2012 London Olympic stadium is Here East. The 1.2M sq ft of unused spaced has been recycled into state-of-the-art office space, adding an untraditional workspace for the Stratford area. Now one of many accomplished awards, Here East is successfully regenerating a community using tech facilities from the old broadcasting house located on site. Bridging together SMB's and larger corporations with a community feel, it's no wonder why BCO awarded the large workspace a National award title for Refurbished \ Recycled Workplace 2018.   

"The project’s approach to the mix of functions, from both co-working and business space incubators to a data centre, television studios, and university space, was described by the judges as a model for future projects." - BCO
