It’s four major wins for JLL Cost and Project Management at the BCO Regional Awards in April 2017


LONDON, 26 April 2017 - At the widely respected British Council of Offices Regional Awards, four key projects delivered by JLL won prodigious industry awards. These projects demonstrate the strength of JLL’s Cost and Project Management teams and how JLL supports their clients in achieving their ambitions across the UK.

Starting in Scotland, KPMG Glasgow, 319 Vincent Plaza was awarded ‘fit out of workplace’. JLL Cost Management worked closely with an external team of professionals to deliver a high standard fit out which the judges commended as it “reflected perfectly the values of the occupier and the needs of its staff and clients.”

KPMG Leeds, 1 Sovereign Square, took home the ‘fit out of workplace’ award for North of England, North Wales and Northern Ireland. The project was praised by the judges for its “invigorating and inspiring” atmosphere. JLL were also chosen as trusted Cost Managers for this project.

This years ‘innovation’ award, which recognises some of the exceptional innovative concepts that are developed across the UK, was presented to Sky Digital Centre of Excellence, in Leeds Dock. The project was acknowledged for the skill and creativity displayed by the winner’s whole scale transformation of a previously empty retail unit, into a vibrant and successful workplace. JLL acted as Cost and Project Managers providing consultancy services and strategic advice from inception of the brief through to the completion on site.

Following these great results, Joe Benson attended the BCO London Awards on 25 April where Sky Central, took home the award for best Corporate Workplace for a “truly unique & dynamic working environment”.
