Edward grew up in one of the Lancashire’s industrial towns and has always been stimulated by how the built environment takes the form it has and its relationship to context. An unusually diverse early career in rural practice, public sector conservation, landscape design and urban regeneration created the interests that have framed the multi-disciplinary skillset of Nash Partnership today.
Edward has led many of our projects requiring sensitive new build design in historic environments, where an understanding of history and attention to detail and planning process have been essential.
This led to many large schemes of brownfield regeneration, of redundant industrial buildings, hospitals, schools and MOD establishments for which new professional skills were needed.
These skills led to his role in developing the practice's capability in urban and large-scale housing design and in urban regeneration.
Edward often holds the role of Lead Consultant in complex projects, scoping and blending both our own skillset and that of other consultants.
Edward is AABC and RIBA conservation accredited. He sits on the West of England LEP Infrastructure and Place Group, representing the business perspective for Bath and working to frame a spatio-economic concept model for the greater Bristol region.
He has particular interests in the value of spatio-economic understanding in making the built environment sustainable.
