Practising what we preach

JTP is an award-winning placemaking practice of architects and masterplanners with extensive experience of delivering successful projects for both private and public sectors throughout the UK and Europe.

We recognise that it is important to practise what you preach and to this end we have taken steps to create a diverse, inclusive, sustainable, and enjoyable working environment, whilst at the same time minimising our carbon footprint, embedding quality and design excellence throughout our projects and implementing measures that stimulate and engage our talented teams.

Our Practice

Healthy, Sustainable and Collaborative Studios

An exemplar workspace, our London studio has been designed to respond to the way we work – creative, collaborative, and project-based – enabling a major change in our working practices to provide greater flexibility, improved communication and social interaction. The design of the studio encourages health, sustainability and wellbeing, and to that end, we have achieved a VOC-free environment, and a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.

Climate Change Commitments

JTP recognises that environmental responsiveness is not limited to carbon and that a holistic approach to environmental and social sustainability is key to design and our operations.

We continually seek to reduce our practice Green House Gas emissions towards net zero and undertake third-party verification which we disclose annually. JTP emitted 90.20 tCO2e in 2022 (including Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions) which represents a 40% reduction in carbon emissions since 2019, and through an offsetting programme with Trees for Cities we have offset 273.52 tCO2e.

A Great Place to Work

JTP places great importance on being a Best Employer and our ambition is to create a stimulating, rewarding, and supportive work environment with a major focus on creativity, collaboration, health and wellbeing.

We have regularly been recognised as a Best Employer across multiple award programmes including Architects Journal, Building Design, Building Awards and Best Companies.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is embedded in JTP’s core values and principles. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Charter is a public statement, signed by partners, that sets out our commitment to create an equal, diverse and inclusive workplace and our ambitions to positively influence and encourage diversity in the wider architectural industry and in the projects and places that we create.

The Charter is supported by our Action Plan, which sets out how we will achieve our ambitions. We commit to upholding the values of the RIBA Inclusion Charter and are an active member of the Architecture Race Forum.

Giving Something Back

We are committed to improving diversity within the architectural profession, working with Blueprint for All (previously known as The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust), local organisations, and schools and to promote architecture as an accessible career – especially for those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

JTP has supported Blueprint for All and their Building Futures programme providing bursaries, work experience, professional advice including CV and portfolio workshops.

Social Value

Social Value is a cornerstone of JTP’s ethos. We give back through our projects and a range of initiatives local to our studios to make long-term investments in the people and communities we work alongside, through a combination of direct financial contributions, and commitments of time, experience and personal investment from our team.

A special place designed by us.
