Opening of new office in Shanghai marks 23rd permanent location for HKS 

HKS, Inc. is expanding its global presence with the opening of a new office in Shanghai. The office is located in the JingAn District, in the Shanghai Kerry Center at 1515 Nanjing West Road. The HKS Shanghai office will provide clients in Asia with full-service architecture, interior design and planning.

The firm has more than 15 projects under design including resorts, hotels, hospitals and urban mixed-use complexes, serving clients in Shanghai, Beijing, Ningbo, Sanya, Chanchun, Kunming, Macau, Suzhou, Guiyang, Qujing, Xiamen and Hangzhao. HKS has completed projects in China including The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel in Macau as well as master planning projects in Guangzhou, Shantou and Shenzen.

“China has sustained tremendous economic growth since the beginning of economic reforms in 1978,” said Ralph Hawkins, FAIA, chairman and CEO of HKS, Inc. “With 350m people expected to move into its cities in the next 20 years, the need for additional housing, workspaces, recreational spaces, and healthcare and educational facilities is paramount.”

Jess Corrigan, executive director of HKS Asia, adds: “The Shanghai office positions HKS to be in the middle of the growth in China and the rest of Asia. We bring experience and creative design solutions to a diverse portfolio of project types. Being internationally recognised for our design, project management expertise, quality control and commitment to LEED adds significant value to our clients’ investments.”

The HKS Shanghai office will add to the American firm’s existing presence in 23 U.S. and international locations.
