JCP also deliver master Planning for station and interchange buildings, together with adjacent associated mixed-use developments. The master plan must make the most of existing assets, for instance historical building and townscape, as well as introducing new dynamics. It is the channel for attracting funding and inward investment. High quality and sustainable development, long term economic viability and the protection of the environment are central. Urban development by its nature requires comprehensive, integrated, multidisciplinary approach which JCP is particularly well suited to provide.
