The British Council for Offices (BCO) provides a valuable service to the industry, making it their mission to research, develop and communicate best practice in all aspects of the office sector. They have been doing o admirably since the organisation’s establishment back in 1990, fast becoming Britain's leading forum for the discussion and debate of issues affecting the office sector.

Of course such an organisation relies upon a knowledgeable and experienced team to maintain their respected position, with many industry leaders moving through their ranks over the years. So, when Northern Committee Chair Stephen Frood, a partner at Gardiner Theobald in the city, recently stepped down from his position, the BCO looked within their own ranks for a suitable replacement, ultimately finding the ideal candidate in Phil Doyle.

Mr Doyle is a founding director of Manchester-based 5plus Architects and has been a member of the BCO organisation for the past 10 years, and so has plenty of applicable experience to bring to the table. In his new role as Chair, Mr Doyle will lead the BCO Northern Committee as it focuses on the BCO Northern Awards, as well as hosting events at iconic new developments across the North of England, showcasing BCO’s in-depth research, and building membership. He has also stated a commitment to promoting diversity both within the organisation’s own ranks and throughout the industry as a whole.

Mr Doyle said following his appointment to the role, “BCO is at the forefront of developments in the office sector, identifying and predicting the themes that shape and drive the sector - publishing research, organising tours of the outstanding buildings in our region and providing opportunities for members to network.

“During my time as chair I would like to increase diversity, not only across the different disciplines our members come from but also encouraging more women to join, and to increase the membership of NextGen - a platform for the next generation of professionals to share ideas.

“BCO research is funded through membership fees, so it is important for BCO to grow its membership in the UK and throughout the regions to support further research that is vital to improving the industry.”
