Firm goes into liquidation
Fraser ‘proud’ of work after architect’s practice collapses
Fifteen staff have lost their jobs and Mr Fraser, who has run the business for 22 years, will operate as an independent consultant.
The company is best known for its work in Edinburgh, including the Scottish Storytelling Centre on the Royal Mile.
It also worked on projects in Glasgow, Stromness and Stornoway. This year, it won a £3.5 million contract for the conversion of the 19th-century City Observatory in Edinburgh into an arts centre.
The practice, started in 1993, won eight RIBA Awards, was shortlisted for the Stirling prize and won the Doolan Prize for Dance Base in Edinburgh.
Mr Fraser said: “I am immensely proud of what we have done over 22 years and the influence it has had.
“I hope my colleagues here, and the clients and ongoing work we had, will continue with other architectural practices.
“I, myself, will continue as an independent consultant, but will also work with other architects, including on existing, long-gestating projects.”
