Scott Brownrigg CEO, Darren Comber to speak at this year's BCO Conference


Scott Brownrigg’s CEO, Darren Comber will be speaking together with Philip King from Hilson Moran, Paul Scott from AKT and Andrew Browne from Gardiner & Theobald at the 2D Reinventing Refurbishment Seminar taking place at this year’s BCO Conference in Manchester between the 23-25 May 2012.  The seminar will be chaired by Simon Rawlinson from EC Harris.  

The 2D Reinventing Refurbishment Seminar will provide an update on the BCO endorsed Can Do Refurbishment report produced by Scott Brownrigg, Hilson Moran and Gardiner & Theobald in 2009. The report set out the benefits and opportunities of refurbishing commercial buildings of the 70s, 80s and 90s to provide opportunities and added value by dispelling the myths normally associated with such older building stock.

The recent introduction and updates of Part L 2010, EPC, BCO 2009, BCO Fit Out Guide and BREEAM 2011 will be explored whilst also considering design, space, technical, programme, cost, certification and rental income. Practical examples will be given ranging from aesthetics, space, branding, maximising ceiling height and floor area, adding floors, sustainability, reducing carbon emissions, improved certification, programme, funding and cost. A future look ahead will also be included.
