Jonathan Davey

Position: Senior Associate

Management Team

Jonathan joined Associated Architects in 2011 and was promoted to Associate in 2017 and to Senior Associate in 2024.

He has a broad range of experience across a variety of sectors and a proven ability to manage the complex design challenges associated with large, multi-phased projects. His most significant achievements during his time with the practice include multiple projects for West Midlands Police, delivering the latest phase of Jaguar Land Rover’s £1bn Engine Manufacturing Centre and securing planning consent for over 32,500sq.m of prime office and residential accommodation at the landmark Post and Mail development in central Birmingham. Upon completion, the first phase of the Post and Mail complex went on to win a number of awards, including the MSCP which was recognised with a European Gold Standard Parking Award and awards in the 2017, 2018 and 2020 British Parking Awards, including Car Park of the Year.

He has also served public sector clients such as Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Police, as well as a number of regional charities including the Birmingham Museums Trust, St Richard’s Hospice and the Birmingham Dog’s Home.

Jonathan has management responsibility for quality assurance standards and compliance and he is often consulted by colleagues seeking advice on legal and technical matters.
