The long-awaited British Council for Offices (BCO) Fit-out Guide was launched this week.
Edited by Tim Battle and Hilary Graves of BRE Environment, the study complements the BCO specification guide published in 2000. The new manual covers questions that clients should ask themselves and their professional and construction teams.
Divided into sections on management checklists, pre-project, the project and occupancy, the guide deals with a wide spectrum of relevant issues, from building services and interior design considerations to contract forms.
Copies are available priced £50 (plus postage and packing) for non-BCO members, £30 for members. Order by credit card from the BCO, tel 020 7283 4588.
