Based in London, UK
Trained at Cambridge University School of Architecture under Sir Leslie Martin, Andrew Chadwick was one of the early global pioneers of the use of CAD in architecture which led to a deep interest in space planning and space management. In this period he worked for JP Morgan in their evaluation of property in London.
He invented the Organisational Space Time Modelling technique, for the establishment and manipulation of the space requirement of major and complex organisations in a relocation project for HSBC.
He created the SpaceTime™ approach to office planning – The SPACE you need for the TIME that you need it.- and applied it to a pilot scheme for the then Andersen Consulting in Arundel Street, arguably the world’s first working virtual office.
As a direct result he moved Accenture from La Defence in Paris into the most prestigious building on the Champs Elysees, No. 55 Avenue George V, saving the firm millions of dollars in the process and creating for his client, David Andrews, the first truly working non-territorial office in the world
When David Andrews left Accenture to found his own outsourcing business Xchanging, he asked Andrew to become Practice Director of its “Environment Competency” responsible for sourcing and designing all real estate worldwide in which role he has created a global real estate brand.
Andrew engaged Buro Happold to join his team in the design of a 1000 person office in Shimoga, India without air conditioning. Using passive design principles the building lowers ambient by 5 to 6 degrees Celsius and is an exemplar for all countries that cannot generate electricity reliably whilst being deeply significant for managing global warming. The project won the “most outstanding international project of the year 2016” awarded by the Duke of Gloucester last Christmas.
In another project of deep significance, he won the Corenet Global “Corporate Real Estate Partner of the Year Award 2005” for his Salvation Army International Headquarters on the Millennium Way between St Pauls and Bankside Tate.
Andrew has recently sponsored a Fellowship at Pembroke College Cambridge to study the use of space in time in order to encourage serious research into the value of the built environment in economic and cultural terms. A book “Activity Space Research” has come from this initiative and is available on Amazon.
Recent work includes acting for four Cambridge Colleges in the “once in 800 years” acquisition of the last major site in Cambridge in which to expand their land locked historical sites. Andrew has also acted as lead consultant to acquire a new head office and to design a space concept for Addiko Bank in Vienna and six sites in the Balkans – Belgrade, Podgorica, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Banja Luka and Sarajevo in a “connected” concept to link this dispersed bank – “six countries one bank, eight locations one office”.
The Chadwick USP is space strategy leavened with economy, technology, intelligent and creative design.
