Jon Sawyer

Development Director

Jon is leading the development and deployment of igloo’s UK custom build housing model.

As project director for HomemadeHeartlands, Cornwall, the UK’s first government partnered custom build site, Jon has created a powerful vision supported by a plan that is proving very popular with the local market and is now ready to be tested on further sites across the country,

A true creative collaborator, Jon is working with partners, investors and igloo colleagues across the UK to bring forward a pipeline of custom build sites including Nottingham, Sunderland, Glasgow and London. In parallel, Jon is coordinating the dissemination of a range of technology products to help the custom build sector’s growth, funded in part by InnovateUK.

Jon is a board member of the National Custom and Self Build Association and currently chairs its developer group.

Outside work he is an avid amateur gardener, growing a huge range of vegetables and herbs, and loves the buzz of city breaks.
