A specialist firm of architects which helps change people’s lives has won the latest Eaton Smith Solicitors Business of the Month Award for April.

France+Associates is an award-winning, specialist architectural practice based in Huddersfield.

The business was started by Jonathan France, who saw an opportunity to provide exclusive services to people with disabilities requiring home improvements.

France+Associates have won other awards including the LABC Building Excellence Awards and the Modern Law Awards (Supporting the Industry).

Jonathan said: “France+Associates are proud to be locally recognised for the hard work we put in for individuals stuck in housing unsuitable to their needs.

“It’s brilliant to have a job that can truly change lives, especially when it’s a ‘job’ we love so much.

“Our company has built a solid national reputation and is the go-to for solving property issues for injured parties, being one of the few firms offering such services in the UK.

“We’re proud to do this right here in the heart of Huddersfield, backed by a team that consistently shows passion, integrity and true Yorkshire grit to turn a building project into a beautiful forever home.”

Ben Jackson, a partner at Eaton Smith Solicitors, and member of the judging panel, said: “France+Associates are a worthy winner, not just for the commercial success of the business, but also the values they hold and the way they help to improve the lives of those who have been affected by life-changing events outside their control.”

Mr Jackson chaired the judging panel and was joined by Martin Hathaway (Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce), Annie Bradley (Department of Business & Trade) and Ian Parsons and Marianne Martin from Parsons Chartered Accountants.
