RMJM has offices in Cambridge, London, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Hong Kong, Moscow, New York, Philadelphia, Princeton, St Petersburg, Shanghai, Singapore and Washington DC.

However, the majority of the 60 jobs expected to go will be from RMJM's base in Edinburgh and at its other Scottish office in Glasgow.

The firm is responsible for designing the Beijing Olympic Convention Centre, the headquarters for the China Merchants' Bank in Shanghai, a new international airport in India and a controversial tower for the new Gazprom headquarters in St Petersburg.
