about us


AED was founded by Tim Hetherington in 2008. 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 find that sensible, attractive and economic hybrid structures, built from locally available materials, are often the right outcome. Information on the services we provide can be found here.

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