Streamlining Delivery at Shell

Shell Strategic Account
Locations Worldwide

HOK is a preferred provider to Shell, working under a global master services agreement across a real estate portfolio that spans 93,000 employees and millions of square feet in 90 countries. 

Our teams have collaborated as strategic partners on more than 100 projects in locations from Houston to Nigeria. This has included an array of planning, design and workplace projects at Shell campuses, research and engineering facilities, offices and trading floors.

HOK developed the ShellWORKs global workplace guidelines, a flexible workplace framework that enables Shell to accommodate regional workplace identities while linking the space to its overall company brand and values.

When HOK began working with Shell in 1997, the company was contracting with hundreds of vendors through a decentralized process managed by dozens of business units, each with different priorities and approaches. Our partnering relationship has helped bring consistency to Shell’s real estate strategy, enabling the creation of innovative design solutions that support the company’s changing business needs.
