As the Sustainable Design Practice Leader in HOK’s DC office, Anica is one of HOK’s greenest greenies. This woman walks the talk, and she is excited that her projects truly can improve our world.
One of the first things you should know about Anica is that if you run the water while you’re “doing your business,” you are in BIG trouble. She knows what you’re doing in there and doesn’t care. But she cares a lot about wasting water!
Anica has advised many clients on sustainable design and guided many different projects through the LEED process. What really makes her tick are the projects with the biggest impacts. She recently wrote LEED guidelines for the District of Columbia’s Office of Property Management, and is now working to train DC employees from a variety of agencies on sustainable design and operations. This project has the potential to positively affect hundreds of buildings and tens of thousands of people – a process that truly will improve the community.
Anica is known for staying up late and philosophizing about the future of the world and the amazing possibilities of sustainable design. If you’re nice to her, she might invite you to one of her famous deck parties for a tasty beverage and stimulating sustainable conversation.
