HKS claimed third place overall out of 156 architecture firms on Building Design+Construction’s 2020 Giants 400 Report, which annually rank’s the nation’s top architecture firms for nonresidential and multifamily work. HKS also garnered top spots in several specific sector categories, ranking second in Health Care, Sports Facilities and Hospitality.

This has helped HKS build resilience and position us to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis stronger than ever.”
