Faithful+Gould appoints North West head of property

Peter Jackson has joined the project management consultancy after five years as a director at Turner & Townsend.

Jackson has more than 24 years of experience in the industry. Past projects include Muse Developments’ New Bailey and Peel’s Liverpool Waters.

In his new role as director at Faithful+Gould, Jackson will lead its property sector in the North West. He is charged with growing the company’s client base within the commercial, mixed-use and leisure markets.

Jackson said his focus would be on regeneration projects.

“Being actively involved in the regeneration of our cities and neighbourhoods through placemaking is a key part of building stronger communities for the future,” Jackson said.

“That has its own challenges with current market conditions but there is an opportunity to introduce innovative delivery techniques such as alternative methods of procurement that will protect our clients’ assets and limit their risk.”

Sustainability and net zero carbon ambitions will also be a priority, Jackson said.

“North West local and combined authorities have set ambitious targets, with Manchester pledging to be net zero by 2038 – 12 years earlier than the global target set by the Paris Agreement so the pressure is on,” he said.

“That means we need to fundamentally change the way we structure feasibility assessments on projects – from how we source materials, limiting embedded carbon and focussing on how the building is going to be used to reduce carbon in operational use,” he continued.

“Faithful+Gould is already leading the way in how to deliver digitised projects that can stand up to strict NZC targets and measurements, so I’m looking forward to working with experts in these fields in Faithful+Gould to expand our existing talent base further.”

Faithful+Gould managing director James Butler called Jackson “a great addition to the team”.

“As somebody from the North West himself, [Jackson is] well aware of the market landscape and the importance of delivering some truly transformational projects for those cities and communities,” Butler said.

Jackson will be based out of Faithful+Gould’s Manchester office. In addition to its Manchester office, the global consultancy has North West locations in Liverpool and Warrington.

Worldwide, Faithful+Gould has more than 2,500 employees spread out in offices across 55 countries. Recent North West projects for the company include Paddington Village in Liverpool, the masterplan of the £2.5bn Salford Crescent, and Liverpool John Moores University’s £64m Copperas Hill.
