What are the benefits of buildingSMART?

“We are dedicated to design excellence by means of science and craft. We want to lead change in how buildings are conceived, designed, fabricated and constructed.

HOK buildingSMART, our virtual design and construction initiative, brings more value to our clients in the form of higher-performing buildings, better quality, a more integrated design-procurement-fabrication-construction process and data supplied to the owner that can be used for the life of the building.”
