Optimizing the American Red Cross’ Workplace

American Red Cross
Process and Workplace Program Development and Implementation

North America (60 regions)

HOK provided the American Red Cross with space management services to centralize its space planning function and to implement new workplace standards that drive consistency and efficiencies.

Our team developed and documented a new workplace program, generated space factors, and created tools and processes to accelerate the delivery of real estate projects.   

HOK’s space management specialists developed a cohesive space strategy with a supporting toolset to implement a flexible work program. We used a robust change management solution to help integrate the strategy in locations throughout the organization’s portfolio.

The projects optimized the American Red Cross’ work space utilization levels to align with industry standards while helping to reduce its overall real estate portfolio.
