Jack Pringle receives BCFA Lifetime Achievement Award

Jack co-founded Pringle Brandon in 1986, one of the UK’s leading architects, designing and specifying workplaces for some of the UK’s biggest companies in banking, TMT and hospitality. With a keen interest in specifying, designing and redesigning furniture, Jack sees furniture as business tools as a well as icons of design and is responsible for the design and fit-out of over 100 million sq ft of project work.

After the 1990 recession, Pringle Brandon focused on designing commercial interiors – one of the quickest markets to recover. The firm successfully won key ‘recovery’ projects, including London Underground’s offices at Canary Wharf and Deutsche Bank’s HQ on London Wall, to become one of the UK’s leading practices, with a prestigious client list within the commercial sector. In 2012, Jack took Pringle Brandon into Perkins&Will, one of the world’s largest architects, and is now Regional Director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Jack attributes their success to the fact that they are architects who think in terms of systems that can mirror the management systems that businesses employ or aspire to. This is then converted into a design, which communicates the company’s value to staff and clients alike.

Jack has also worked in architectural education for 20 years and co-wrote the curriculum for schools of architecture in 2006. He was president of RIBA from 2005-07, when he campaigned to replace PFI with a better system and Chair of CIC from 2012-4, when he sat on the Government’s Construction Leadership Council, advising the Secretary of State. In 2007, the French Government made Jack a ‘Commandeur des Arts et Lettres’ – the highest rank of this cultural award, for his contribution to architectural education.
