The British Council of Offices has appointed deputy chairman of the Wates Group, James Wates as its new president. Wates is the first contractor to head the organization and takes over from Gary Wingrove. Wates chaired the BCO annual conference in May this year and urged the 500 delegates to examine their sector in a wider economic context.
“Office developments are more significant today than they’ve ever been. They are expected to acknowledge and even set standards in carbon reduction and neutrality as well as in the quality of environments in which millions of people spend large parts of their lives,” Wates said.
