Jersey firms: no to UK rivals

  • Comment
Architects on the Channel Island have admitted fears for their livelihood as UK practices continue to win island projects

Architects in Jersey have warned the island’s government that it is in danger of killing off local practices if it doesn’t stop UK firms winning work there.

The Association of Jersey Architects (AJA) has called on the island’s politicians to do more to protect local architecture firms in the tough economic climate.

The AJA cited the ‘unprecedented’ number of big UK architecture firms working in Jersey, which includes Hopkins Architects, MJP Architects, Ian Simpson Architects and Robert Adam Architects.

‘There have been a lot of UK architects working in Jersey and some of our members have reacted to it,’ said AJA president Mike Waddington. ‘We have been successful in generating a lot of support locally.’
