    • Our 2008 GOal Implement energy, daylighting and material usage modeling on new BIM projects. TOPOGraPHiCal annual PrEvailinG Wind analySiS PROGRESS REPORT With the full implementation of Revit across HOK in 2008, the opportunities to expand the use of BIM to drive sustainable performance has also grown. Test 1: From South Projects across HOK have begun to use Ecotect along with other analysis tools to study climate and weather analysis, daylighting, solar studies, and energy use early in design. In addition to project piloting, we focused in 2008 on identifying and testing a broad range of available software to understand their project value and validity. Tested software included Ecotect, IES, Radiance, Daysim, & Green Building Studio. This will lead to a recommendation of a suite of performance analysis tools for broad rollout in 2009.

    • POLICY2 Adopt the AIA / USGBC goal of 50% carbon emissions by 2010 and measure HOK’s progress. [ TOC ] 19
    • Our 2008 GOal #1 Initiate measurement of HOK’s carbon emissions in our offices and projects. PROGRESS REPORT After the Fall 2007 rollout of HOK’s Emissions: 2010 50% carbon reduction commitment, our 2008 efforts first focused on identifying ways to measure HOK’s carbon emissions. We successfully completed the first carbon footprint benchmark of HOK’s practices – looking at our offices’ energy usage, business air travel and commuting. We also piloted in HOK’s Los Angeles and St. Louis offices installations of energy sub-meters that link to a live feed showing energy usage at day, week and month intervals. HOK has learned a great deal about the intricacies of live metering and are exploring ways to expand and improve upon this pilot for other offices. Live Energy Usage Feed for HOK LA and HOK STL http://www.hok.com/sustainabledesign/Metering/HOK_Office_Metering. asp?directory_UUID=c257bd28-1422-77e3-d2c3-fe1118e0825a [ TOC ] 21
    • Our 2008 GOal #1 Initiate measurement of HOK’s carbon emissions in our offices and projects. PROGRESS REPORT FIR s T CARBON FOOTPRINT BENCHMARK OF HOK’s PRACTICEs OF 200 7 DATA A subsequent analysis is underway for 2008. A key finding was that over half of our footprint was due to business air travel. HOK’s implementation of expanded virtual meeting technologies across the firm will help in reducing our air travel carbon footprint. [ TOC ] 23
    • POLICY3 Use LEED or BREEAM green building guidelines on all projects. [ TOC ] 25
