Eddisons has appointed Nick Rymer as the firm’s new associate director head of architectural services. He will be based in the Leeds offices with a UK-wide role.
RIBA affiliate Rymer joins Eddisons with more than 20 years’ experience in the construction industry. During that time he has worked across a wide range of significant projects, including undertaking measured surveys of all the UK’s HM Passport and HM Land Registry offices.
Having held national roles as an architectural technologist and building surveyor, most recently Rymer project managed schemes for major UK retailers, both client and contractor-side. These include co-ordinating the redevelopment and fit out of the Leeds city centre Itsu Japanese restaurant. He also delivered a highly complex full survey and design package to extend the Hull Jame Masjid mosque.
Eddisons’ national head of building and project consultancy Ian Harrington said: “Demand for our services is constantly growing across the UK and we are really pleased to welcome a colleague of Nick’s calibre. His appointment will give Eddisons a strong architectural dimension, enabling us to assist schools, among other clients, to deliver projects from conception to completion and to provide a complete turnkey service.”
The firm’s building and project consultancy team recently secured more than £20m to improve buildings, safety and energy efficiency at 50 schools across the UK under the Government’s Condition Improvement Fund programme. Eddisons is currently working with schools and colleges to help them secure funding from the £25m Salix fund for projects that improve energy efficiency.
