Colin Chadderton

EIT | Urban Designer

Colin received a Bachelor of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and a Master in Landscape Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Passionate about the confluence of ecology, technology, and society, his graduate thesis investigated the potential of sensors to innovate the practice and discipline of landscape architecture, and explored their use in monitoring, intervening in, and communicating peatland restoration. Prior to joining Sherwood, Colin worked with the US Army Corps of Engineers, on the Hillside Sustainable Living community in Newburyport, and at an aquaponics farm.

Fun Facts: Colin is a DIY enthusiast who’s proudest accomplishment to date is hand building a 6-ton dry stack stone retaining wall to hold back his terraced garden. A longtime kayaker and peatbog enthusiast – Colin aspires to embark on a multi-day canoe trip through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (Minnesota). Although he’s still overcoming his denial about having a sweet tooth (…it’s all about the chocolate…), Colin once gave an impassioned presentation in grad school about chocolate chip cookies which he views as the perfect dessert.
