The early stages of Phil’s career were spent with some of the UK’s largest commercial architecture firms before he co-launched Jordan + Bateman a quarter of a century ago.
Since then he’s helped to build the practice’s reputation for delivering high-quality design in complex environments framed around a belief that architecture is essentially about problem-solving.
He maintains a hands-on role in design and is a specialist in master-planning – leading a number of projects in China and elsewhere.

Andy joined the practice as Director in 2015 having built up a wide range of experience around retail, residential and mixed-use development over the course of almost 20 years.
He has brought strong design skills to a number of prominent multi-million pound projects across London and the rest of the UK.
Andy has extensive experience of working with major developers, leading retailers and local authorities to deliver high-quality schemes.
John Bateman BA, Dip Arch (POSB), RIBA
John co-founded Jordan + Bateman in 1991 and has since played a key role in building the practice’s reputation for world-class architecture.

Cristina Refolo
Cristina is a Chartered Landscape Architect with experience in a variety of sectors, including brown field regeneration, education and residential development where SUDS systems, biodiversity and civic space form a model of social cohesion for sustainable living. Before working in private practice, Cristina’s work at Canal & River Trust (formerly British Waterways) gave her critical insight into London’s canal infrastructure. The Landscape Institute has awarded her the prestigious ‘Design Above 5ha Award’ for the grounds at Coworth Park, Sunningdale, in 2012. Her Landscape Architectural degree, combined with her MScs in Political Science/Environmental Law and in Local Economic/Urban Development inform a design approach from a wider sustainability and community perspective. Cristina is currently a member of the London Borough of Islington Design Review Panel.
CADsultants will provide independent CAD Management and BIM coordination services, which will allow JBA to have independent vetting of their technical and procedural systems.
