Located in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia and just steps from 30th Street Station and University City, HBK's Center City Philadelphia office opened in May 2015. The HBK Philadelphia office enhances our ability to work more closely with our clients located in downtown Philadelphia and along the Northeast Corridor. It is located in a building that has received a LEED platinum certification and further demonstrates HBK’s commitment to the environmental goals of our company and our clients.
Our Philadelphia office works closely with our Norristown office to provide the full spectrum of our company’s services. Our Philadelphia office provides HBK with greater flexibility to address our clients’ needs in downtown Philadelphia and provides more options for our employees in the Philadelphia area.
Key utility clients serviced by HBK's Philadelphia area offices include PECO Energy, Crown Castle, PPL Electric Utilities, Aqua Pennsylvania and Level3.
