The Jobcentre Plus Environment Guide (JPEG) is the document that defines the design of Jobcentre Plus sites, whether customer-facing, Benefit Delivery Centres or Contact Centres. It provides advice and guidance on the design concept, space planning, storage and best practice, as well as details of the full range of components and finishes and their correct usage.

Under this guide we delivered all of the above projects on budget and on time for their Go-Live dates. All of the above schemes were fast track to comply with the fast turn around requirements whilst the building remained fully operational during business hours. We started onsite on the first project in August 2009 and over a 7 month period we had all projects complete and handed over to the client.
