HOK Tapestry will expand HOK’s list of qualified partners, enabling the firm to curate better project teams and foster greater equity within the AEC industry.
HOK is furthering its leadership role in the architecture, engineering and construction industry with the creation of HOK Tapestry. The online portal (hoktapestry.com) allows XBE firms seeking to collaborate with HOK to upload their profile and qualifications into the database HOK uses to assemble project teams.
Information entered in HOK Tapestry will enable HOK project managers to curate the best partnering firms based on the client’s specific project goals. With HOK Tapestry, HOK seeks to expand its list of potential partners and bring greater equity to its project teams.
“The HOK Tapestry platform allows us to accomplish many goals,” said HOK’s Kimberly Dowdell. “It will improve our productivity, strengthen our project teams, fulfill clients’ needs and advance diversity within the profession.”
HOK Tapestry is for XBE firms owned and controlled by members of minority groups, women, veterans or socially and economically disadvantaged persons. Businesses registered with HOK Tapestry will also be invited to participate in programming designed to help HOK’s partner firms build capacity and expand future business opportunities.
“HOK Tapestry continues our firm’s history of being a smart and supportive partner for our clients and project collaborators,” said HOK Chairman and CEO Bill Hellmuth. “We look forward to seeing how the tool will continue our legacy of pushing the industry forward.”
HOK Tapestry is now open for registration at hoktapestry.com. Tapestry partnership discussions and educational programming will begin later this spring.
