Eight years after implementing building information modeling (BIM), HOK holds an internal “BIM Day” and changes all references of CAD (Computer-Aided Drafting) to BIM.

Soon after, HOK introduces concepts including “BIM Certified” and adopts a more holistic approach to BIM known in the profession as “buildingSMART.” 

HOK uses buildingSMART principles to leverage 3D modeling, concurrent analysis and integrated project delivery practices to enable design teams to work faster and smarter. This approach adds value across all phases of design, construction and occupancy.

The firm engages in industry efforts such as IFC (OpenBIM standards), COBie and the LOD Specification.
