“One of our core values is genuine caring about the many people and places we touch in our work. HOK’s people have always been generous, volunteering their talents to serve unmet needs in their own communities.”

Bill Hellmuth
Chairman + CEO, HOK

HOK IMPACT is our firmwide strategic approach to corporate social responsibility.

Our triple bottom line approach—focusing on economic, ecological and social sustainability—aims for a promising future for the communities we serve around the world.

We seek to promote architecture as a social tool, using design to support and empower communities. By organizing HOK IMPACT into three distinct categories—professional services, charitable donations and volunteerism—we are raising the profile of the design profession and making a difference.
