Earlier this year, the BCO were thrilled to bring back the NextGen Design Competition for a second time in 2020. First launched in 2017, this year we asked the BCO NextGen membership to look beyond the Pandemic and share their vision of the Post Pandemic Office – the Office in 2025.

We received a fantastic array of entries and judges were impressed by the quality, innovation and unique ideas presented by our NextGen community, so thank you to all who got involved and took the time to enter the competition. After careful deliberation, judges narrowed down the entries to a shortlist of 5:

• A Day to Night Outfit
• Futurework
• Scattered Space
• The BCO Home Office
• The High Street Hub

Our finalists will now take part in stage 2 of the competition, live pitching their proposed vision to our senior panel of judges in a ‘PechaKucha’ style event. Each pitch will last no longer than 10 minutes, with 5 minutes for judges’ questions. Once we have heard from all five teams, judges will deliberate for a short time before announcing the winner.

Join us at this exciting NextGen event, where our teams will vie to become 2020’s final design competition winner!

Stage 2 Judges:
• Racheal Cadey, Principal – Board Director and Founder, Edge
• Katrina Kostic Samen, Head of Workplace – Strategy and Design, Workplace, KKS Savills
• Benjamin Lesser, Development Manager, Derwent London Plc
• James Pellatt, Director of Workplace and Innovation, Great Portland Estates
