Founded in 1990, HKI recognizes the ever-changing nature of technology, and it's influence on design.  The firm adheres to a participatory design process, which typically entails simple and effective ways of owner involvement for crucial decision-making.  This collaborative approach has led to innovative, cost-centered solutions.


The professional attention of the "registered" professionals means that there is no "pass-off" to junior level staff.  The expert attention devoted to carrying out day-to-day design tasks usually mean better proficiency in our work, and a more effective collaboration with the client's staff.


HKI's computerized construction cost estimating system utilizes a similar data base as that used by many contractors, thereby yielding realistic projections of building costs.  The firm's "on-line" capabilities allow for the exchange of documents electronically, thereby contributing to a more expeditious project and saving the client valuable time.  During construction, a seasoned team directs all activity and looks out for the client’s interest while work is underway.   Additionally, we act as the Owner’s liaison after construction relative to warranty concerns.
