JSA Architects moves to new Derby office

Connect Derby has welcomed back its first ever tenant, as the newly rebranded JSA Architects sets up home at Sadler Bridge Studios.

The firm, formerly known as Justin Smith Architects, was a tenant at Friar Gate Studios for 10 years before leaving the managed workspace scheme in 2017 for a new head office on Queen Street.

Now, Justin Smith and his team have moved back into the Connect Derby fold, with office space at Sadler Bridge Studios, the £4.4m three-storey building on Bold Lane.

The move comes as a result of the firm’s need for increased flexibility and connectivity and a desire to focus on its core business.

JSA Architects founder, Justin Smith, said: “A lot can happen in a short space of time in the built environment industry and we are excited to embark on the next phase of the company’s development.

“After searching for suitable office accommodation, it became clear that Sadler Bridge Studios was the perfect home for us – it has all the facilities we need and more.

“As we have been informally known as JSA for some time, it made sense for us to make the change official. Although we have changed our name, we are still committed to providing the same levels of excellence we have become renowned for over the past 15 years.

“Special thanks go out to Ann Bhatti for her continued support. She welcomed us when we became the first business to take space at Friar Gate Studios and has been on-hand once again to help with our relocation to Sadler Bridge Studios.”

Ann Bhatti, head of Connect Derby, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Justin and his team back to Connect Derby. They were fantastic tenants for more than 10 years and it’s really gratifying to know that having looked for offices across the city, they still had the confidence that Connect Derby was best placed to support their continued development.

“I’d like to wish JS Architects continued success and look forward to building on our strong working relationship.”
