RMJM’s Goodwin Dukes it out over international commissions
June 1 2010
Goodwin was visiting Prince Andrew in his capacity as international trade ambassador alongside RMJM chief executive Peter Morrison.
The one hour meeting explored opportunities for RMJM in overseas markets and how the Prince could help the architects win lucrative foreign commissions.
As part of his business role Andrew lobbies overseas contacts to procure British goods and services. No stranger to controversy himself his wife was recently embroiled in scandal after offering to sell access to the Prince for £500k.
There is no suggestion of any impropriety in this meeting.
RMJM have built up an impressive overseas presence in recent years proving to be a genuine Scottish success story and are currently involved in separate negotiations with Unesco over plans for a 396m headquarters for Gazprom in St Petersburg.
The organisations world heritage committee are to deliberate this week over its position on the tower, leaked papers suggest that despite acknowledging the “professionalism” of RMJM the organisation may call for authorities to suspend work on the project owing to concerns over skyline impact.
