dhk’s commitment to design excellence is indicated by our firm policies which support the company’s ethos.

Policies on equity and fairness in the work place are paramount to achieving this. Equal opportunities are provided to eligible people in the form of contribution towards architectural education as bursaries and student internships, and staff skills development.

Sustainability fundamentally underpins dhk’s design thinking in all aspects of each project. This is expressed through sustainable design methods and the implementation of “green” technologies, and has garnered dhk a reputation for robust sustainable design with several completed Green Star SA rated buildings.

dhk’s Corporate Social Responsibility policies seek to adhere to a high standard of legal, sustainable, economic, environmental and social practice. Quality control is also considered vital to ensure delivery of the best result. This takes the form of commitment to continual improvement by goal setting for performance targets, a design review process for projects, and proper management of teams and staff.
