Trusted by our clients to provide project leadership and integrated design, and to successfully navigate the process for projects of all sizes

In 1981, in the midst of a serious recession, Otak’s founders set out to create the region’s premier multidisciplinary design firm. Now, celebrating over 30 years of success and our strategic partnership with Korea’s HanmiGlobal, our clients and partners have recognized Otak’s excellence as an integrated design firm helping clients build livable cities and sustainable communities. Today, hundreds of designers, planners and engineers worldwide continue that original mission, collaborating to write the next chapter in Otak’s history.
