Chad Reilly Tapped to Grow Civic Practice in New England
Chad Reilly, AIA, is now HDR's civic principal in New England. Reilly is responsible for growing a well-balanced and multidisciplinary design team, strengthening collaboration across architecture’s market sectors, and building new, strategic partnerships with clients throughout the region. Reilly is known for his highly collaborative approach, ability to understand the client’s vision and talent for navigating highly complex projects.
Most recently, Reilly, who has more than 25 years of experience, served as managing principal in the firm’s Boston, Massachusetts, office. His diverse portfolio includes museums, educational facilities, corporate and commercial projects, innovation centers and health and science buildings. Each one, he noted, relies on a group of people — owners, contractors, engineers, architects — working together to make creative but well-founded decisions to deliver their projects.
“I am passionate about bringing that broader team together to express their vision, voice their concerns and co-author design solutions,” Reilly said. "HDR has an incredibly wide range of expertise, so I am looking forward to working with experts in planning, resiliency, sustainability, economics and design to support our clients with an unrivaled breadth of solutions.”
Prior to HDR, Reilly spent 15 years working on museum projects — in particular, the Art of the Americas Wing at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. His team alone had over 100 people working on the project during its 10-year life span.
