Lorna Edwards – Associate Partner

Lorna was exceptional throughout the process and the fact that she is held with such great regard from across all members of the delivery team is testament to this. We all valued her input immensely and agree that the outstanding building that has been created is in huge part down to her dedication, skill and influence.

Lorna is an experienced and accomplished project architect and team leader who takes pride in her collaborative and pragmatic approach to working with clients, consultants, and contractors. Her extensive experience in stakeholder engagement is invaluable and she has a proven track record of success in delivering award-winning buildings with complex briefs for clients such as the British Museum and London School of Economics.

She leads RSHP’s sustainability group and is committed to driving awareness and sharing sustainability knowledge with colleagues and beyond, acting as a member of the LETI Pioneers Steering Committee. She also takes part in New London Architecture’s Expert Panel on Education.

Currently, Lorna is one of the Project Leads for the British Library Extension project, a multi-faceted scheme at the heart of London’s Knowledge Quarter which will provide new facilities to broaden the Library’s outreach, education and exhibitions programmes integrated with a large Life Science hub, Cross Rail 2 infrastructure and extensive public realm. The project has a strong social value framework with broad community benefits and ambitious sustainability goals.

She has made a significant contribution to a number of high-profile projects that involved detailed stakeholder engagement and construction delivery. Lorna was the Project Architect for the RIBA National Award-winning London School of Economics Centre Building, from RIBA stage 2 until completion. This was preceded by several years as a core team member for the Stirling Prize shortlisted British Museum World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre. Before joining RSHP, she was a project architect for several education and health care schemes located on difficult urban sites.

In addition to her project work and sustainability role, Lorna is also part of RSHP’s EDI, recruitment and new business teams.
