The U.S. State Dept. has announced that architect HOK, St. Louis, will design a $192-million addition to the U.S. Embassy complex in Moscow. Construction of the 15,000-square-meter building is set for completion in 2015. It will achieve at least Silver LEED certification, according to the firm. HOK was one of 27 architects that submitted proposals to design the addition, the company says.
The growing need to collect, store and analyze the huge volumes of data collected from infrastructure project stakeholders is generating a new growth area for construction-sector firms, IT vendors and professionals.
