Great Sutton Street

The Challenge A key challenge for the Client was to create a creative hub to attract talented professionals back into the studio post-pandemic. The office space therefore needed to reflect the culture and ethos of the client and enable their team to come together and collaborate. Jackson Coles’ acted as advisor from the outset and […]

15 Mansfield Street

The Challenge There were a number of structural discoveries on site during the early part of the scheme that contributed to cost and programme challenges, and therefore the design had to be adapted in collaboration with the whole team. Our cost consultants worked very hard to represent the client’s best interests throughout this process to […]


The Challenge Much of the initial work involved ‘unpicking’ the MEP and structural alterations which had been made over the 130 year life of the building, with extensive opening up works allowing us to understand and control risk. The enabling works were technically challenging, with a complex scaffolding system put in place whilst the upper […]

Hertfordshire House

The Challenge The property has Grade II listed status and is set within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Our understanding of the nature of listed buildings and the challenges faced in refurbishing and adapting them meant we were able to identify risks in advance and subsequently set prudent allowances in the budget and […]

The Gilbert & One Lackington

The Challenge The property is on a constrained site, in a conservation area and is locally listed. Due to planning constraints and protected views, there were strict restrictions on any proposed height increases. The new extensions and increased massing were sensitively designed to respect this, securing the necessary permissions whilst delivering the NIA uplift required […]

The ground and upper floors within the 5 buildings were connected to create a total of 6 galleries, all of which can be used flexibly in many combinations […]

White Eagle Lodge

The Challenge The project, whilst relatively small, was highly complex, particularly the temple itself. This was because of the nature and function of the building and the corresponding physical and geomantic factors we needed to consider during design development, through procurement and into constructing its complicated form. The precast concrete arch geometry was one of […]

Michael Faraday House

The Challenge The project provided a number of challenges including designing the works so that they could be undertaken in an occupied space, integrating new technology and services into the existing building structure and fabric and completing works concurrently with the construction of a new deck car park on land adjacent to the main building. […]

Dartmouth Park House

The Challenge The impacts of COVID and the availability of labour were the key challenges for this project. Our support to the Client therefore extended to re-setting and re-negotiating a second contract in order for the works to be completed. We also supported them with VAT matters. The Outcome Our proactive advice in difficult circumstances […]

New Hibernia House

The Challenge The site is landlocked on all sides and, with the hugely popular Borough Market directly opposite and residential blocks adjoining, this presented serious logistical constraints and challenges for the team. Significant negotiations were held with the local authority to allow us to close footways on the very busy Winchester Walk and to install […]
