New Edinburgh office to be headed by former RMJM architect John Kinsley.

Aedas Architects is to open an Edinburgh office next January following significant growth of the business within the Scotland region.

The new office will be the practice's second in Scotland - Aedas has been established in Glasgow for 20 years - and will be headed up by former RMJM architect John Kinsley, whose previous work includes his role at RMJM as project architect on the Stirling Prize winning Holyrood Scottish Parliament building.

The Edinburgh office will service new and existing Aedas clients that operate in Scotland and will work on a number of new projects including the Scottish High Courts Framework.

Won by Aedas one year ago, the project will go on over approximately five years and will include the refurbishment of the former home of the Scottish Parliament - the listed Parliament House building in Edinburgh - and the construction of a new courts complex nearby.

Aedas has also recently been appointed by Scott Wilson as technical support service advisor on the new Edinburgh Tram project, an initiative set up by Edinburgh City Council. The project to construct Lines 1 and 2 of the new tram system will run over approximately five years.

The office will also work on a number of ongoing education projects including Perth & Kinross Schools PFI and the Edinburgh Schools PFI.
