“I have worked with JCA on a number of different projects and have always been very impressed by them. They always took the time to understand what I was trying to achieve and on each occasion provided me with the best solution and delivered it on time and within budget.”

“James MacNamara has an interesting theory about architects. 'They fall into three distinct categories', he explains. 'Some just listen to you and do what you say. Others don't listen to you at all. And some you just click with'. James consulted more than 20 architects before settling on Jonathan Clark.”
