JAC Group appointed by English Heritage
Following an exhaustive period of due diligence, JAC are proud to announce their appointment to project manage English Heritage’s proposed Headquarters relocation from Waterhouse Square in Holborn.
In 1913 an Act of Parliament was passed that gave the Office of English Heritage new powers, essentially to make a collection of all the greatest sites and buildings that told the story of Britain.
By 1933 there were 273 sites in the collection including Stonehenge, Rievaulx Abbey, Carisbrooke Castle and Richborough Roman Fort. Preservation was the primary objective, but telling their stories was almost as important.
By 1970 the English part of the collection alone stood at 300 sites visited by more than 5.5m people, it was by far the largest visitor attraction business in the country.
The collection of historic places now managed by English Heritage has grown to over 400
The search is underway for a new London head office, and the JAC Project Management team are working with English Heritage to identify and deliver a suitable environment for the next phase of their continued expansion.
