David Bostwick Named HDR Justice Principal

David Bostwick, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, has been named Justice Principal for the Central Region. As a 29-year veteran in the criminal justice field, his particular specialty is in providing consulting services to justice clients for jails, courthouses, law enforcement facilities and prisons. In his new role, David will continue to work closely with other HDR justice leaders and project teams to successfully use the latest tools and processes to assess, plan, design and deliver justice facility systems and facilities.

“I believe in engaging with clients and partners early in the planning process to first diagnose the underlying issues that are causing problems. After the root issues have been discovered and quantified, I then lead clients through an interactive process of discovery towards real planning, programming and design solutions,” says David.

Located in the Dallas office, David has served as a Senior Justice Planner on a wide spectrum of projects for government clients across the U.S. including Denton and Dallas counties in Texas, Contra Costa County in California and La Farouche Parish in Thibodaux, Louisiana. David’s transformative work in the industry promotes facility planning design that helps to encourage rehabilitation and reduce recidivism.

HDR Justice Director Mike Brenchley says, “The majority of David’s career has been spent developing relationships and serving clients in the Central and Great Lakes regions—this new position is a natural fit with his background. David’s relationships, especially his extensive network of consultants in the region, were instrumental in helping us win two new projects in Ohio for Franklin and Ross Counties. I think it’s a sign that great things are ahead for us in the Central Region, with David leading the way forward.”

One of the country’s premier justice consultants, David is a contributing author to several National Institute of Corrections (NIC) publications on facility planning and design. He is currently serving on sub-committees for the American Correctional Association (ACA) and the American Institute of Architects Academy of Architecture for Justice (AIA-AAJ).
