Description The last edition of the BCO Guide to Specification was published in February 2005 and much has changed in the office market over the past four years. A big change has been the growing importance of sustainability in office development, it is now an integral part of any new development.

New research was commissioned to inform this latest edition of the BCO Specification, covering subjects ranging from office temperatures, occupier densities and small power consumption. There is additional coverage in the report on acoustics, vertical transportation, building refurbishment, handover and taxation. As with previous editions, it includes the incredibly useful 'Quick guide to key criteria'.

It addresses the current drivers for change in the industry, identifying value, changing occupier requirements, sustainability and integrated design as the key factors at this time.
