about us


AED was founded by Tim Hetherington in 2008 and is still run by Tim, now supported by Alexis Tsekouras and Jim Bradford. AED has offices Edinburgh and Bath. Our staff all share an enthusiasm for projects regarded as out of the ordinary but also for giving more routine projects the attention that our clients expect. Unlike many other practices today we still undertake the majority of detailed design and coordination work in-house.

AED has various interesting specialisms, but these exist as part of a wide skill base and we think this broad perspective is necessary for overall success. As part of this outlook, we do not promote one structural form or technology over another. We prefer a pragmatic approach where things are employed for the particular advantages they offer. We find that sensible, attractive and economic hybrid structures are often the outcome. Information on the services we provide can be found here.

Overall, our varied experience and cooperative style puts us in position to assist our clients in a helpful way, using language they understand. Productive relationships result.
