APCSS Construction Update  June 2, 2011 - Issue #5

Work Scheduled for Saturday

Photo:  Pouring the concrete for the building's foundation. 



This Saturday, June 4, beginning at 9 a.m., the construction crew will be on site to fill in some open trenches that were dug to run utilities and a new sewer line to the new building. We are making every effort to minimize the number of Saturdays worked during this project. Work between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturdays, however, is permitted in the noise permit issued by the City."   


Our engineers are also redesigning a planned sewer line in order to preserve an existing tree. While requiring a minor redesign and several feet of additional trenching, we and our partners are sensitive about preserving green space and are taking appropriate steps mitigate impact on existing trees.



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.


Why isn't the contractor using water to cut down on the dust?

The contractor was originally doing this but then cut back in an effort to conserve water. We received a call from a neighbor complaining about the dust and have asked the contractor to use water to cut down on dust when appropriate - especially on those days when there is no rain.
