Nathalie Bergvall oversees design across all JRA’s projects, as well as bids and competitions. Kerri Cooke has expertise in workplace refurbishment and reuse.

JRA is looking to build its portfolio of retrofitting Grade A office and mixed-used developments
The practice is currently looking to build on its existing portfolio of retrofitting Grade A office and mixed-used developments – particularly in London – while growing new workstreams in the workplace, sustainable retrofit, educational, residential, civic and other sectors.
Sustainability, diversity and wider ESG issues at the focus of JRA
John Robertson, founding director, said: “The practice has built a strong reputation in the marketplace over the past three decades.
“The promotion of these five exceptional individuals recognises JRA’s evolution in recent years towards creating a portfolio of projects which places sustainability, diversity and wider ESG issues at its focus.
“It also reflects, I believe, our flexibility as an employer and our ability to nurture and encourage a committed team of top-quality designers.”
