Harvey Richmond Managing Director, Gemma Day, attended the British Council for Offices’ (BCO) Regional Awards for the South of England and South Wales Dinner held at We The Curious.
As the Awards reach their 10 year milestone, the quality and variety of entries was extremely impressive. Spanning the region from Swindon to Cornwall the nominees proved to be innovative and forward thinking creating buildings which occupiers want to be in.
Guests enjoyed a three course Dinner followed by an inspiring talk from Mark Foster, arguably the most recognised male Swimmer of his generation. Mark discussed the challenges he faced as an Olympian as well as the high-profile TV career he has enjoyed since retiring from competitive swimming on programmes such as A Question of Sport and MasterChef.

The British Council for Offices’ (BCO) mission is to research, develop and communicate best practice in all aspects of the office sector. It delivers this by providing a forum for the discussion and debate of relevant issues. Its members are all organisations involved in creating, acquiring or occupying office space, whether architects, lawyers, surveyors, financial institutions or public agencies. The BCO works to advance the collective understanding of its members, enabling them to work together to create more effective office space.
With pre- drinks on the balcony over looking the Bristol Harbourside this event provided a wonderful opportunity to network. Gemma Day thanks her hosts, The Midas Group.
