JCJ strives to create facilities that enhance the campus environment, promote academic attainment and support the advancement of pedagogy. We believe that working collaboratively with our clients and the consultant team is the key to addressing a project’s unique issues, needs and consequences. Rather than bringing preconceived ideas to a project, we advocate for an exploratory and research-based design process that supports co-creation of the architectural response. We aim to listen carefully and communicate strategic ideas and conceptual alternatives while building consensus at every stage of the design process, culminating in a vision that is highly functional, expresses the art and technology of building design and creates a place that will last and be loved.

JCJ has completed a wide variety of projects on campus across the United States related to science, student and residential life, academics, athletics, recreation and the arts. Projects have ranged from master planning, programming and conceptual design; new construction and renovation to tenant fit out and adaptive reuse.

JCJ participates in the local and national dialogue about design and the built environment. The firm's work has been presented at the Society of College and University Planners national and regional conferences. We are members of the American Institute of Architecture, the Society of College and University Planners, the Association for Learning Environments, the National Intramural and Recreational Sports Association, the Urban Land Institute and the Design Build Institute of America.
