HOK’s dedicated 15-person team worked on-site at Capital One offices in Richmond, Dallas, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York. Our responsibilities included space and occupancy planning, portfolio planning and real estate data management.
HOK’s space planning services improved the quality of Capital One’s occupancy data, generating measurable efficiency gains and cost savings. By applying a consistent approach to delivering pre-project planning services, the team balanced the workload and ensured on-time project delivery.
Monthly reporting gave Capital One more transparent occupancy data. Seat sharing for many groups rose to 1.7:1, with an average of 1.4:1. At a site level, vacancies below 12.5 percent triggered feasibility studies for expansion options.
HOK’s space management team supported Capital One through a period of rapid growth. The company’s headcount grew by nearly 70 percent over three years. This included the acquisition of two new business card units.
HOK’s structured, repeatable delivery model enabled our on-site teams to scale-up quickly to meet Capital One’s needs while maintaining excellence in delivering space planning and management services.
