HNTB’s OKC office helps provide important resources to community orgs during pandemic
HNTB is committed to helping our Oklahoma City community through the challenging times of 2020. Through its REACH (Retaining, Enriching, and Advancing our Culture at HNTB) initiative, the firm identified engagement opportunities to help employees donate and volunteer for organizations in need.
“At the very beginning of the pandemic, our office came together to purchase and donate supplies for the Oklahoma City Animal Welfare center. We discovered they were struggling to find supplies after the shutdown, so we were eager to get involved and help their cause,” said Heidi Katz, HNTB Oklahoma City Practice Leader.
The Oklahoma City Animal Welfare center serves more than 24,000 animals each year and are always in need of donations.
“After donating to the local animal shelter, we also could see the challenges ahead for students and teachers alike. In July, working with the We are Oklahoma Initiative in conjunction with the Open for Business Oklahoma coalition, we participated in the Pencils from Protractors school supply drive in July to express our support for our local school system,” said Katz.
This initiative demonstrates local business’s commitment to the communities in which we work, live and grow. This drive helps equip Oklahoma students with the supplies they need to succeed for the upcoming school year.
Established in 2017, HNTB’s Oklahoma City office has grown to nearly two-dozen professionals delivering critical infrastructure projects throughout Oklahoma. HNTB serves as the lead designer for Oklahoma City’s first bus rapid transit project extending from downtown along Classen Boulevard and Northwest Expressway to Meridian Avenue as well as serving as the general technology consultant for the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. Founded in 1914, HNTB understands the life cycle of infrastructure and addresses the state’s most complex technical, financial and operational challenges. For more information, visit www.hntb.com.
