    At HTK Architects, quality service and design are the backbone of our firm, which we believe begins with our personnel. Our team puts careful and thoughtful consideration into each phase of the design process to ensure design excellence. Our policy is to assign a Principal-In-Charge and at least one Project Manager to each project. Each staff member is responsible to the owner from the beginning through the post-occupancy review of a project. Decisions regarding each project are made through joint efforts with the Owner, Principal-In-Charge and the Project Manager as well as input from the project team through weekly team meetings. We are dedicated to ensuring every project has principal involvement and personalized attention.

    Renewable Energy, Storage & Microgrids

    Examples of renewable energy and distributed energy generation resources include Solar PV, CHP and co-gen plants, geothermal, renewable natural gas, wind – all of which can be paired with microgrid and battery storage technologies to promote resiliency and sustainability.

    Data drives our energy analytics and supply management solutions ranging from our proprietary asset management software, AssetPlanner®, to energy procurement services for negotiating contracts and stabilizing customers’ energy budgets.

    Operations and Maintenance

    Our holistic approach ensures end-to-end technical guidance to continued O&M of energy systems. A well-designed and properly executed O&M program is a crucial element in the equipment performance and maintenance required to realize all possible energy savings.

    Financial Options

    We are uniquely positioned to provide financing for any opportunity – from ESPCs and PPAs to Design-Build and turnkey EaaS. We have 20 years of experience with a $10B track record in energy projects across financing models, markets, and technologies, utilizing available incentives.
