APCSS Construction Update April 15, 2011 - Issue #4

Pile installation

The recent test pile drives proceeded better than expected. Thanks to the soft soil we expect the installation of the piles to take only four days vice two-weeks as originally planned.  


Twenty-eight (28) piles will be installed next week. Currently, the contractor is scheduled to begin pile driving on Tuesday, April 19 and should be complete by Thursday April 21. Each pile will take less than an hour to set, with only 15 minutes for that hour dedicated to pounding.


Afterwards, the contractor will install "grade beams" which will serve as footing for concrete wall blocks. We expect walls to begin going up in mid-May with block work lasting about four weeks.


What is this new building?

Wing C  is a new 10,000 square ft. single story building to serve as a state-of-the-art Information Integration Learning Laboratory that includes a 108-person plenary space, six seminar rooms, audio-visual and computer server rooms, required ancillary spaces, and an ethno-botanical garden. Read More

Construction FAQs


How tall will the building be and will it obstruct our views?

The building is a single-story and should not impact anyone's views.


There is not enough open space in Waikiki. How much room will this new building take up? 

The current fence line is a construction safety area. The final fence line will only come out as far as absolutely necessary. Once construction is done there will still be ample open green space in the area.  We are also adding an ethno-botanical garden on the Kalakuau side of the campus for the community.
