Joe’s work at MJP has included projects that have involved creative re-use, including the remodelling and repair of existing structures: from 1960s and 70s university campus buildings to historic listed fabric at St James and Marylebone in Central London.

He was the Project Architect on the £13m refurbishment of the 1970’s University of Warwick Student Union, involving new-build extensions and insertions into the existing structure, and a complete internal reorganisation of performance, hospitality and catering spaces. The constrained budget was carefully prioritised so that the ‘front of house’ could benefit from sculptural elements in high quality materials whilst the nightclub, performance and ancillary spaces had a more straightforwardly functional approach.

He has worked as package architect on a number of jobs including the production information for the cladding on West Cambridge Residences.

He worked on the team that drafted the current Development Plan for Warwick University, which included carefully considered development on Green Belt land, and has since overseen the implementation of several projects which were part of this Masterplan.

Joe has also been involved in similar masterplanning work for the University of Birmingham, from which several landscaping projects have been developed, improving the environment along the major pedestrian routes identified in the masterplan.

He also worked on an update of MJP’s West Cambridge Masterplan, which was reviewed to meet the University’s current development needs including the provision of an Enterprise Centre. In 2008 he was also part of the team which won a project for an LDA masterplan for the Victoria Embankment in London.
