The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore
HDC has coordinated the creation and implementation of a Zoo-wide Master Plan that addresses the development of new exhibits, the renovation of existing exhibits, the management of guest traffic to and through the Zoo, and improvements to strategic services & infrastructure. This plan helps determine the appropriate pace and balance of the types of projects that are undertaken so that the Zoo steadily continues to attract guests and address critical operational needs. The master plan is reviewed thoroughly every few years to project further in to the future and react to changing needs.
HDC has worked closely with Novo Nordisk over the last 7 years to evaluate the various ways in which to meet it's long term real estate needs. From dynamic spreadsheets and graphs that display how each decision affects the ability to accommodate employee growth, to detailed budgets and schedules, we have become an integral part of a small team that charts the company's path as it relates to their physical space.
