JIA has a deeply rooted interest in promoting sustainable construction, both by employing traditional techniques and also incorporating more contemporary systems where these reduce energy consumption and environmental impact. JIA joined the Green Register of Construction Professionals in January 2004 to extend its knowledge base and network with like-minded practitioners. We believe that this is a complex, potentially massive field, where developments will bring many benefits to our clients.
We have built mutually beneficial relationships with a wide cross section of organisations in recent years on small and large projects, including:
- Brunel Training
- CLIC Sargent
- Cowlin Construction
- Grove International
- Kennett Housing Association
- Knightstone Housing Association
- Midas Construction
- Ronald McDonald Children's Charity, Bristol
- Sanctuary Housing Association
- Somerset Primary Care Trust
- Taunton and Somerset NHS Trust
- University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Bristol)
- Weston General Hospital
- Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
JIA is on the ‘approved list’ of University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital Trust, Taunton & Somerset NHS Trust, Weston Area Health Authority, Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the practice has been appointed to the NHS Blood and Transplant Service Framework for 2010-13.
In addition, we have qualified for the Constructionline database (registration number: 18756) of approved businesses for government contracts where we welcome scrutiny of our post contract evaluation record.
Our project to humanise ancillary accommodation at the Childrens' MRI scanner at Bristol Royal Infirmary was opened by Princess Anne. The practice was awarded a commendation in the RICS/The Times Conservation Awards for designs for retirement homes converted from redundant agricultural buildings at Great Bedwyn, Wiltshire.
