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 Modellingâ technique, for the establishment and manipulation of the space requirement of major and complex organisations in a relocation project for Midland Bank.
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 that continues to innovate. Xchanging is now a FTSE 250 company with 9000 staff for which he is currently designing a naturally ventilated 1000 person processing centre in India working with environmental experts Buro Happold.
In a 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 Millenium 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.
Projects currently being worked on include a four College residential teaching development in the heart of Cambridge.
The Chadwick USP is space economy leavened with intelligent and creative design.
