He is a contributor to the book ‘White Papers Black Marks’ the Athlone Press, London, 2000 edited by Lesley Naa Norle Lokko.

He established dcuk in 2009 to work closely with clients on bespoke assignments, after over twenty-five years in architectural, project management and facility strategy roles at several corporate entities, including GlaxoSmithKline and CB Richard Ellis’ global real estate business.

As well as running the practice, Ed is a professional studies adviser and teaches on the Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Practice in Architecture at the University of Westminster.
