DWL Architects + Planners, Inc. announces their expansion to a new office in Dublin, OH. This new location strengthens the DWL regional presence and provides the opportunity to pursue, support and deliver more projects in the midwestern region. The location is ideal for its central position within Ohio – close to current clients like John Glenn Columbus International Airport, Detroit Metro Airport and Midwestern University, and just an hour’s flight from Chicago Metro.

“Our foundation is built on relationships. We are excited to continue the relationships we have established with leaders in many industries throughout the Midwest, as well as develop new relationships with different clients in Ohio and beyond its borders,” said Steve Rao, DWL President.

Dublin is within the regional technology hub and is recognized as the “best-connected community in Central Ohio.” The location positions DWL as a neighbor to major educational institutions such as Ohio State University, Ohio University and Wright State University. This new office is DWL’s second official, full-service office and will be led by Brad Swank.

Brad grew up in the suburbs of Columbus and graduated from The Ohio State University. After completing his Master of Architecture he joined the DWL team in 2007. He later returned to Ohio to graduate again with an MBA and an interest in firm leadership. This year, DWL is proud to recapture his talent, enthusiasm, leadership and passion for Ohio as he takes on management of this expansion.

“I’m very excited to see the Dublin office open. It demonstrates DWL’s commitment to growth and expansion,” commented Brad Swank, Regional Director. “At DWL, we believe that successfully providing full-service planning and design solutions for our clients requires more than just knowledge. Our commitment to excellence, combined with our mission to deliver outstanding architecture, has earned our company the excellent reputation it holds today.”

Over the past 70 years, DWL has become one of the nation’s most dynamic and respected architecture firms thanks to our dedicated individuals who share a common vision to provide clients the best service and achieve distinctive, successful projects.

“I rejoined DWL because of their commitment to their clients. DWL’s collaborative designs push the parameters to exceed every possible expectation. DWL also is a place for me to blend high-performance design with expert knowledge,” said Swank.

Through decades of experience, DWL has grown to understand all facets of architecture. Their craft provides clients with a first-class, cohesive design. Responding to function first, the firm balances technical expertise with innovative design.

“We believe what sets us apart: we’re resolutely committed to helping our clients achieve their goals. Their success is our success. Trusted Legacy. Responsive Design. Exceptional Service,” said Rao. “Our staff is our key strength. We encourage and support our team in achieving their goals to become better architects. Because of our team’s broad expertise, we have been fortunate to participate in some of the most complex and architecturally significant projects recognized locally, nationally and internationally. Our culture enables our staff to align their talents with their passions – which is what makes Brad Swank the ideal leader for our Ohio expansion.”
