Jack Adams

Architect

BA (hons), GradDipArch, ARB

Jack is an architect at HTA, having qualified in 2016, he has been employed by HTA for over 5 years, and has been in the architecture industry for over 16 years.

Prior to joining HTA, Jack worked at several Architecture and Design offices including Arup, United Visual Artists and USE Architects.

While at Arup, he worked as an Architectural Assistant on several high profile masterplanning projects such as Stratford City and Dongtan Eco City.

When at United Visual Artists, he ran several small-scale interactive light art installations, while working as a team member on larger exhibitions, and worldwide touring exhibitions.

While at USE Architects, he cut his teeth working on small scale developments and residential extensions.

While at university, he was a key member of a community group called Let The Music Speak.  The mission of LTMS was to organise and raise funding for community street parties and mini festivals, aiding social and community cohesion through music – this involved approaching and negotiating with the local council, local businesses and stakeholder, and performers – some of the sites on which we held street parties and festivals in have since continued to organise festivals using the contact list and branding we developed.

He has recently completed the redevelopment of the former Queen Elizabeth Children’s Hospital in Tower Hamlets.  He had been working on this project for almost 5 years, being part of a small team taking the design from (the old) Stage E, through to completion.  During the construction, he has progressed from Architectural Assistant to Project Architect.  This project has since been nominated for multiple industry awards and has been Highly Commended on some of these.

He was working directly under Senior Associate Martin Jennings as a package architect producing Tender and Construction stage working drawings on 2 phases of the redevelopment of the Stonebridge Estate in LB Brent, North West London.

He has worked on the redevelopment of the former Walthamstow Stadium, working directly under Mary Davies, checking drawings, and producing working drawing packages as required.

Additionally, he has also spent a significant amount of time working on Phase 4B and Phase 5 on the Millbrook Park development in Mill Hill.  Both involved understanding challenging topography, proposing strategies to work with and mitigate the topography, and for the base of Phase 4B, producing a highly detailed and thoroughly worked through design, which ultimately assisted the bid being successful.

He has assumed the role of Project Architect, reporting directly to the Project Associate, on the planning submission of the former London Electricity Boards building in Bethnal Green, with will involve demolishing the existing 1960’s office building, and replacing it with 4 residential buildings providing over 185 homes in a highly sought-after area.  This is due to be submitted for planning imminently. The design concept and masterplan are based on a contemporary vision of local warehouse vernacular, repurposing features and aspects of the original LEB building.

He is the Project Architect on a residential masterplan and regeneration project in Bromley which involves tackling with complex site topography, an extensive consultation process, and a detailed understanding phasing.  He is also the Project Architect on a PRS project in Barking, which is also in early planning stages.

Jack is also a part of CAD support within HTA, assisting with the CAD setup on significant projects to ensure as smooth a design process as possible.
