HOK Science + Technology
science + technology facility renovation experience
Our experience with HOK was very positive. From programming of the project through design and construction, HOK involved the faculty and staff and designed a unique facility on a tight budget and schedule. We had to release the initial design, so we turned to HOK who restarted the schematic design process and developed a plan that worked. Their design and construction plan met our budget and re-invigorated faculty and staff for more detailed planning and future use of a beautiful and functional facility. L. Scott Ellis Dean and Professor Emeritus, Truman State University

using our multidisciplinary global resources to renovate + reuse science environments As one of the world’s most influential design firms, HOK uses our multidisciplinary global resources to creatively renovate, reuse and reposition existing environments. Approaching the renovation and addition of science and technology facilities creates additional complexity. With the cost of lab renovation approaching that of new, HOK considers the following key issues when undertaking renovation projects: • Mitigating risk of unknown conditions in existing buildings and systems • Identifying stakeholder and user priorities • Comparing quantitative and qualitative program requirements to existing space • Code, hazardous materials and life-safety issues • Renovation versus replacement costs for MEP systems • Utility infrastructure for new and existing • Decisions on location of highly technical space • Parity of scope, finish and image between renovation and new • Impact of phasing on construction cost and schedule • Operational phasing plan and potential use of temporary/swing space • Creating appropriate spaces and images for science
