"Jonathan was absolutely brilliant; he is very easy to talk to. I’d heard good things about France + Associates from other people and liked the fact that they are a family-run business. They listened carefully to my ideas and liaised with my Occupational Therapist and Case Manager to understand everything I needed from the property. My house is perfect!”

"The property adaptations undertaken have ensured that the client can be as independent as possible. It's well thought out layout allows her to be as independent as she can be with her mobility and daily living skills. Her continued rehabilitation can be enjoyed in her own home, with her family."

“This was my first occasion of instructing France and Associates to undertake an architectural project on a clients’ home, but it certainly won’t be my last! From my very first meeting with them I was really impressed by how they approached the project with such obvious knowledge and expertise. They guided both my client and I through the entire process. With F+A’s guidance, decisions were made on informed choices rather than simply on price alone. Throughout the project I received regular updates from them without any prompting. At the end of the project they handled the inevitable snagging quickly and with no fuss. They are a pleasure to work with.”

“France+Associates adapted an existing property for our daughter Bex, who has dreamed of having her own home since she was 14. Due to the enormity of the project, we have felt so lucky to have the entire process managed by Jonathan - from talking through ideas and plans to the final build, he has been a huge support every step of the way. Jonathan and the team at France+Associates held our hand throughout, and we were even allocated Amy as a dedicated point of contact who got to know our family really well. During this time, we have built an incredible working relationship with her which has been invaluable, particularly her knowledge and understanding of the specialist equipment that was needed in the home. As a 26-year old woman, Bex has her own style and it was important to her that her home was accessible, but in a non-clinical way, and that is exactly what France+Associates have achieved. The house is a tasteful home that anyone would be proud to live in. Bex was a major part of the whole process. Everyone appreciated Bex’s input and were sensitive to her needs. Because of the lockdown, Bex was not attending college so was around more than expected, which meant she was able to be fully involved. Bex’s 24/7 care team were also a big part of the process, and we all felt that their contribution was invaluable. They are an incredible team, and the house will be their home and workplace, so its nice to know that they are provided for too!”

“The France and Associates team are so approachable and incredibly easy to get along with. We can readily contact them with any queries, and they are always happy to talk these through with us, and act as a point of contact between us and the Deputy on matters relating to the house. Amy is our main point of contact. Her expertise and knowledge has been invaluable to us and we have great faith in her as the building project progresses through to completion. As a family, we are fully involved with all the plans and we feel able to make design suggestions and requests that will ensure the home is perfect for us all, but most importantly, for Isaac. We love visiting the site to see how the house is progressing and cannot wait to move in!”

“The project was completed during COVID, and the building team were absolutely wonderful. We thought it was going to be a nightmare, but they were COVID safe, wearing masks, sealing off areas and making us feel totally safe too. They became our outdoor family, and we miss them now they’ve gone! France + Associates and the builders guided us throughout the entire project, and from the very beginning asked us what we wanted to see and what we needed for Steven. They were all so thoughtful and listened to everything we had to say. We as his parent’s and Rachael as his sister were fully involved. They had a vision to turn a house that no longer suited Steven’s needs, into a fully accessible family home, with Steven at the heart of it. We were all a team and agreed on the design ideas - we fully trusted them all. Since the adaptations, the home feels big, (despite being the same size!) and there is a better use of space, I feel so calm here now.”
