2014 Design Q&A: Redesign and Repurpose featuring HBG Principal Dike Bacon

From Casino Design – read full article here

In Casino Design’s annual Q&A with expert architects, designers, builders and developers, this year the subject is the reuse of older buildings, and what constitutes a successful renovation. We started with this premise:
    
“It’s quite clear that any particular casino design has a shelf life appropriate to the time and place when and where it was built. How do you keep your offerings fresh and your property intriguing to customers?”
    
These questions were put to the experts once again this year by Julie Brinkerhoff-Jacobs, the president of Lifescapes International.

Past, present and future of sustainable building with Hnedak Bobo

From the Memphis Business Journal – read the full article here

In 1979, architects predicted the oil embargo of 1973 and ensuing energy crisis would be the “greatest molder of architectural style since the pyramids.” When energy became affordable again in the 1980s, people lost focus on the groundbreaking energy-saving design work that was just gaining traction.

HBG Sponsors Local “Green Apple Day of Service” Event

Hnedak Bobo Group teamed up with the Memphis Chapter of U.S. Green Building Council and several other local companies to host the Green Apple Day of Service’s “Paper Power!” competition this past Saturday, Sept. 27. Participating Memphis area students created innovative structures made only from recycled paper products, and the results were nothing short of amazing! We had so much fun seeing the unique interpretations of the recycling message “Recycle or DIE!”. HBG is a proud sponsor of The Green Apple Day of Service, which gives parents, teachers, students, companies and local organizations the opportunity to transform all schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments through local service projects. We can’t wait until next year’s event.
