BDP deny bias in BCO awards
April 29 2010
BDP racked up three out of five awards with wins for West Lothian Civic Centre, Tanfield and an internal fit out of 141 Bothwell St. The latter of which’s letting agents (DTZ) were also represented on the panel by Bill Colville.
Urban Realm commentator ‘Young Sceptic’ cried foul at this stating: “Surely the people on the judging panel should not be allowed to enter the competition? In an industry that is so closely knitted we need to be fair and above board.”
However a BDP spokesperson scotched any notion that this had prejudiced deliberations: “Everyone should know that if there are any conflicting interests on a jury panel then that juror will leave the room.”
This year BCO’s five man panel was headed up by John Shepherd of Whiteburn Holdings and included such industry stalwarts as John Mark Di Ciacca of Jef Developments and Ramboll director Bill Ritchie.
