London Office Opens

London Office Opens

By 1987, HOK’s reputation has reached London, where Western-style development projects are being built throughout the city. HOK has already designed a major commercial center for The Church of England at St. Enoch Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, and is now invited by a UK developer to open an office in London for the purpose of designing three sizable mixed-use developments in the heart of London.

In 1989, Larry Malcic joins HOK as design principal in the London office.

In 1995, HOK solidifies its position in the UK by acquiring the prestigious London firm Cecil Denny Highton (CDH). This merger brings a strong base of well-respected public sector projects and clients.
