David Paton Building Consultancy was formed in 1981 by David Paton.

David left school in 1971 and obtained an apprenticeship with Campbell and Arnott Architects. David obtained a huge amount of experience and know how working under esteemed Architects Ian Arnott and Douglas Laird. In 1979 David left to become Contracts manager with AB Cant, he remained there until in 1981 when he decided to start out in business on his own. The business was based in Albany St Lane and remained there until 1990 when David decided to work from the "Studio" behind his house in Loanhead. As a growing practice more staff were recruitted including Kevin McLellan and with no room for more staff at the studio, a move was made to the present office at 13 High Street, Loanhead.

In 2007 David asked Kevin to join him in partnership.

Kevin joined W N Thomson & Co straight from school in 1989  where he obtained his Architectural Technology qualifications and worked on a varied portfolio of projects for a number of high profile Edinburgh companys. The attention that Nick Thomson expected for his clients and their buildings stood Kevin in great stead for his career. In 2001 Kevin decided he had served his apprenticeship and looked to progress his career, he joined David as Senior Architectural Technologist and worked closely with him to progress the company.
