Student Accommodation, Park Lane, Leeds

JPG are proud to announce our involvement on a new 188-bed student accommodation scheme located in Leeds City Centre.

Appointed by Maple Grove Developments and Yorvale and working closely with GMI Construction, JPG are providing Structural and Civil Engineering Services to transform the site previously occupied by an office building and multi-storey car park into a student residential property to support the growing student population of Leeds.

Construction begins this month and completion of the project is expected by August 2021.  The property will be let to Unipol Student Homes for a fixed term of 25 years.

Dearne Valley Parkway – Gateway 36 Phase 3

JPG, under the appointment of Harworth Group are pleased to provide Structural, Civil and Strategic Land Services on their sites on either side of Dearne Valley Parkway, close to Junction 36 of the M1.

Plans have been unveiled for the development, which will bring forward new employment space for the second and third phases of the Gateway 36 scheme on the former Rockingham Colliery site.

With the assistance of JPG, an application has recently been submitted to Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council which seeks consent for 1.1 million sq ft of space for business, industrial, storage and distribution purposes, as well as consent for earthworks, landscaping, drainage and access.

It is estimated that this development will support the creation of 2,500 jobs.

These proposals mark the first employment phase of the Hoyland North Masterplan.

JPG Group Announces Senior Appointments


JPG are delighted to announce two senior appointments as part of our succession planning.

Robert Redmond joins JPG as a Director responsible for heading up the Infrastructures team.  Returning to the company after taking a sabbatical, Robert has previously worked for a number of local and international consultancies and specialises in highways, drainage and infrastructure design.  With considerable experience across residential, industrial and commercial projects, Robert is committed to achieving client objectives, both practical and commercial and leading the team to deliver optimum engineering solutions.

Owen Lokuciejewski-Taylor has been promoted to Associate Director and will lead the new Strategic Land team at JPG.  With considerable expertise in geological sciences and remediation of the UK’s coal mining legacy, Owen has been identified as a rising star within the company with great potential for leadership and strategic support to clients.

Owen is already leading the integration of the latest BIM software across the company into the Strategic Land team and provides a valued high level, early stage assessment of sites to identify commercial and sustainable development options.

Both Robert and Owen join a strong management team, supporting directors David Allwood and Matthew Potter who continue to assume more responsibility for the strategic direction of the business and overall client servicing.  Chris Harding continues to run the business operationally as Managing Director.

Chris Harding said “We are delighted to bolster the management team at JPG with Robert’s return and a much-deserved fast track promotion for Owen.  Alongside David and Matthew, we now have a very strong leadership team in place to continue our long legacy and remain a valued, long term strategic partner for our clients”.

JPG continues to enjoy strong growth and now employs 50 people within its Leeds headquarters.  Alongside our Infrastructure and Structures teams, we have recently introduced new propositions in Strategic Land Engineering, Geospatial Analysis and BIM services.

Recent instructions include the new 232,190 sq ft facility for Croda at Goole 36 and, at Skelton Gate in Leeds, a 170-acre joint venture development between Evans Property Group and Keyland Developments.
