WASHINGTON, D.C. — John Chadwick joins DLR Group as a Principal to lead the firm’s K-12 Education practice, serving school district clients in the northeast. Working from the firm’s Washington, D.C. studio, Chadwick is responsible for growing the practice by establishing new relationships with potential clients and collaborating with school districts to design environments that elevate learning in local communities.

Chadwick brings experience from both the design and district perspective. To better understand the whole lifecycle of a school, Chadwick transitioned from private practice as an Architect to School Administrator in 2011. During his tenure as Assistant Superintendent of Facilities and Operations at Arlington Public Schools in Virginia, Chadwick oversaw three capital improvement plans and the design and construction of four new schools, four major renovations, and the consolidation of the division’s central offices.

“John brings to the team a deeper understanding of the education design process, having been both a client and an architect,” said DLR Group Senior Principal Jim French, FAIA, who leads the firm’s global K-12 Education studio. “He’s a respected designer, and is well known in the education industry as a champion of zero energy facilities.”

Chadwick was a member of the project committee that wrote the ASHRAE Advanced Energy Design Code for zero energy schools in 2017. His work on zero energy schools earned him a leadership award presented by the U.S. Green Building Council at Greenbuild in 2019.
