    Membership in a commercial property association or organisation means that an individual or company meets certain standards of professionalism. It also gives clients or customers confidence that they are dealing with professionals that are qualified. The following are some of the associations and organisations that help govern the commercial property industry in the United Kingdom, including professional bodies.

Members are drawn from a wide range of professions and expertise, including architects, financial institutions, lawyers, public agencies, and surveyors. The goal of the BSO is to promote a collective understanding of members to foster more effective office space. In addition to research and publications, the council organises events throughout the year and offers regional networking programmes for its members.
