Keith Thomas has joined EDAW to lead the launch of the Cardiff office, which opened on 1 September to serve Wales and the South West.

He comes to EDAW after ten years working with property consultants DTZ.

The EDAW Cardiff office will deliver a range of services, but focus initially on economic development and regeneration.

Keith Thomas said: “I am delighted to have joined EDAW and to be setting up their office in Cardiff. The regeneration agenda is changing rapidly and EDAW’s ability to integrate economics, planning, urban design and sustainable development delivery is a powerful combination.”

Thomas recently led the preparation of the Severn Valley Economic Vision, working alongside EDAW.

He also worked with EDAW on a masterplan for the 200ha Felindre Business Park in Swansea for the Welsh Assembly.

EDAW has been commissioned to develop the South East Wales Networked Environmental Region Framework.
