Former director of YRM and Aukett Associates Iain MacDonald to depart from architect

State of play

Iain Macdonald, design principal at architect RMJM, is leaving his position at the firm.

Macdonald was previously a director at architect YRM when the firm was bought by RMJM in January this year. Before that he was a director at architect Aukett Associates.

He has previously worked in the nuclear power and technology sectors.

In September RMJM-owned YRM lost out in a bid to design for EDF’s new nuclear plant at Sizewell in Suffolk, despite having been originally appointed for the job two years ago, after the competition was rerun.

Building understands Macdonald’s departure from RMJM is not connected to the practice’s recent restructure, in which three of the company’s UK subsidiaries were placed into receivership.
