In Memory of John Fjeld R.I.P.

It is with great regret that we have to announce that John Fjeld died suddenly at home on 31st October. John retired in October 2016 having joined the practice in the 1970’s.  He was involved with many of Alec French’s most significant projects over the years but as importantly was very much a father figure and mentor to many of those who worked for and indeed still work for Alec French.  He will be sorely missed.


The fully restored Gaol Gatehouse is now open at our newly completed Phase 2 mixed use scheme at Wapping Wharf.

Atmospheric lighting highlights the contrast from old to new as the restored Gaol Gate marks the entrance to Wapping Wharf Phase 2. External public spaces are now open for all to experience as the last few homes are sold to the latest residents of Wapping Wharf.

Restoration works to the gates were completed by architectural metalwork specialists Dorothea Restorations with a public art installation by Julie Thaysom (commissioned by Gingko) to be installed at a later date.
