Paul has been with the business in its various forms for over 30 years. When he graduated from the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture in Aberdeen in 1979, he joined the Edinburgh practice which was at that time known as the Waters Jamieson Partnership and then became the Dodd Jamieson Partnership. After becoming a Partner in 1989 he then merged the business with Lewis & Hickey in 1995 in order to move away from a regional architectural business to provide a national approach, thereby reflecting many clients needs.
When the practice commenced trading as a Limited Company in 2001, Paul was appointed CEO and he continues to actively drive all aspects of the business whilst still keeping very much at the front line of architecture which he thoroughly enjoys. In particular he relishes the varied opportunities that architecture can bring and has worked on a wealth of project types such as naval defence buildings to aircraft hangers, water treatment plants to central distribution facilities, mortuaries to maternity suites and so on along with the more ‘regular’ work streams such as the banks, retailers, universities and residential clients.
To every project he brings a commercial approach to the business of architecture, which helps deliver client satisfaction and accordingly, repeat business and long term relationships.
Paul is very much a family man with 4 (not so young) children and a long suffering wife! Any time not spent on work or with the family, he loves to play music and enjoys sport (mostly observing nowadays) and classic cars.
