HOK has been recognised as Urban Design and Landscaping Company of the Year at the 2015 Middle East Consultant Awards. The award ceremony took place on 6 December at the Jumeriah Emirates Towers Hotel in Dubai. HOK, which has an office in Dubai, has been active in the Middle East for more than 35 years, delivering complex projects across many sectors.

“We have an extensive portfolio of successful projects across the Middle East, demonstrating a deep understanding of local culture and practices,” said Daniel Hajjar, managing principal for London. “Our landscape architects and urban planners work together as a cohesive team to provide comprehensive design solutions for a wide range of projects. We are delighted that our multidisciplinary expertise has been recognised with this prestigious award.”

The Middle East Consultant Awards celebrate the region’s best multidisciplinary consultants and specialists in the built environment sector. HOK won the top prize in the Urban Design and Landscaping Company of the Year category, which acknowledges ‘impeccably crafted urban design and landscaping work in the Middle East’.

HOK’s current and recent projects in the Middle East include: the master plan for Dubai Expo 2020; the Marina Mall in Doha; The Change Initiative sustainable retail prototype store in Dubai; the Rosewood Abu Dhabi hotel; and two of the largest high-rises currently under construction in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region: the 74-storey Abu Dhabi National Oil Company Headquarters in Abu Dhabi and the 80-storey Capital Market Authority Tower in Riyadh.
