HKS LINK – Adaptive Reuse

HKS LINK explores the stories of three companies and the reasons they chose adaptive reuse as a creative solution for a unique workplace. A production facility is turned into a colorful and lively showcase for a major cosmetics company. A fitness center is transformed into a technology company’s corporate headquarters. A previously shuttered government office reopens its doors – and windows – as a modern workplace. The right location, coupled with the right set of real estate and economic circumstances, gave each of these clients the opportunity to see the possibilities for converting an existing building into their vision for the future.


HKS INNOVATE 2013

HKS INNOVATE 2013 explores all things construction administration. Kirk Krueger, principal and director of construction services, discusses lessons learned using BIM in “Looking Beyond Building Information Modeling (BIM): What BIM Means to the Construction Process.” A glimpse into the CA backstory on HKS’s new space in downtown Dallas is revealed in “HKS Headquarters Relocation: The Real CA Renovation Story.” We also discuss construction administration around the globe. How do architects in China approach the construction administration process? What takes place in India? How does the process differ in the Middle East? And, we take a trip into the art of glass blowing in an interview with world-renowned artist, Dale Chihuly.

HKS LINK guides readers through tips to consider in the design process to provide guests with an awesome experience – and create extraordinary places to which people long to return. Beginning with general hotel planning, we move to the porte cochere, the lobby, the guest room and beyond. Some tips are practical; others are opportunities not to be missed.
