Even in the best of times, architectural practice is a very competitive business with razor thin margins. Consider today's economy and the pressure to survive and thrive becomes even more difficult. Architectural firms, such as HOK, are looking for ways to streamline and supercharge their businesses now more than ever with the help of new software, such as Autodesk Revit, and hardware that includes 3Dconnexion's SpacePilot™ Pro.
HOK is a global provider of planning, design and delivery solutions for the built environment. Since the firm's founding in 1955, HOK has developed into one of the world's largest, most diverse and respected design practices. It employs more than 1,800 professionals across a global network of 25 offices, and creates environments that meet the world's most complex planning and design challenges. The ability to connect across markets and disciplines in every part of the world allows HOK to see the "big picture" and, because it approaches design from so many different perspectives, gives it an unparalleled ability to innovate.
