Jonathan France, Managing Director
Jonathan France Dip MCIAT is a Chartered Architectural Technologist and the Director of France and Associates.
Jonathan was previously an Associate Director at a national award-winning practice based in Leeds, and wishes to use his varied experience in the residential sector as a platform for ongoing success.
Jonathan acts as an expert witness in accommodation for cases involving medical, clinical or personal injury, providing accommodation reports on a number of cases where instructed by solicitors for defendants and claimants alike. When appointed as designers and project managers, Jonathan is proud of gaining a reputation for incorporating inclusive design within a home and moving away from clinical finishes, as is customarily found with competing “disability architects” in the market.
Jonathan prides himself on offering friendly and pragmatic advice, employing an approachable and understanding service to clients with specialist needs, or those with specific business and lifestyle requirements. This allows him to tap in to the project's full potential, managing fellow professionals to provide his clients with a complete design package, from feasibility to handing the keys over to the end user.
Professionally, Jonathan has an interest in specialist care and community projects, sustainable developments, Passive House technology, and most importantly the availability of inclusive design and installation in standard homes. Jonathan is an avid supporter of “Changing Places”.
Outside of work, Jonathan enjoys watching and playing football, but get’s to do very little of it due to his young family and work ethic!
