What is HOK’s approach to energy modeling?

“Energy modeling is a no-brainer for HOK and our clients. It’s like reading the miles per gallon rating before you buy a car. It’s basic performance information that every building investor should know. Energy modeling on all our projects helps HOK meet our internal energy and carbon commitment to AIA 2030, helps our clients find cost-effective ways to meet their sustainability goals and supports a more creative, beautiful and resilient design outcome.”
