Dave Swindells

An Associate at JTP, Dave has over 20 years’ experience in architectural practice, with projects covering public and private residential, student, commercial, leisure, office and hospitality, including many mixed-use schemes. He has extensive expertise with high-density urban regeneration projects and the associated technical and placemaking challenges they pose. These are often on difficult and constrained sites and range from feasibility and capacity studies to detailed planning applications. As such, Dave is part of the Quality Control and Risk Management group within JTP, which monitors changing regulations and guidance within the industry.

Whilst at JTP, Dave has worked across a number of projects which have successfully achieved planning approval. These include Ferrum forming a new gateway building fronting a major new public square on the approach to Wembley Stadium; Brunel Street Works which features a collection of high-density buildings, delivering a multi-tenure development on a complex and constrained site alongside the DLR in Canning Town; a new urban extension at Marleigh Phase 2 on the eastern edge of Cambridge integrating town and countryside;  the transformation of redundant industrial land into a high-density, new neighbourhood at Cheshunt Laekside on the edge of a Country Park.

Most recently, he has been responsible for the submission of Devonshire Place, a detailed planning application on an underused, brownfield site on the Old Kent Road in Southwark. The proposals deliver 200 new affordable homes, alongside 941 student bedrooms, student ancillary spaces and active ground-floor commercial uses.

Away from the office, Dave likes to travel and is a keen triathlete. He is part of JTP’s Health & Wellbeing group, champions cycle-friendly design and also set up the JTP running club – Collaborative Pacemaking.

Our people are the heart of who we are.
