Global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm, HOK, has entered into a partnership with the Green Sports Alliance (GSA), an international non-profit organization that advises professional and collegiate leagues, teams and venue operators about environmental stewardship.
Under the partnership’s terms, HOK will offer GSA members enhanced access to information about strategies for sustainable venue design, operations and technologies. HOK will also help shape future GSA membership programs and partnerships. The firm is currently collaborating with the GSA to develop a report outlining the future of sports facility design.
“The Green Sports Alliance shares our goals for bringing sustainability to the sports industry,” said Chris DeVolder, sustainable design leader for HOK’s Sports + Recreation + Entertainment practice. “This innovative partnership will also support our firm’s commitment to the 2030 Challenge, an initiative seeking carbon neutrality in all new buildings, developments and major renovations by 2030.”
