APCSS Construction Update  October 2011 - Issue #6

Wing C Update & Holiday Schedule

Roof going up on Wing C. 

 

 

The Maluhia Hall project is proceeding safely and without incident.  The next major milestone is the completion of the roof and installation of windows, doors and louvers -- which will achieve an enclosed building.  This will happen by the end of November.

Other projected milestones include:

 

Building Exterior Completion

02 MAY12

Building Commissioning

25 MAY12

Project Close Out

28 MAY12

Official End Project

05 JUN12

 

As the building is enclosed, much of the work will move inside.  However some exterior work will continue including work to replace the air conditioning systems which will occur from December through March. Then in March contractors will begin landscaping the area including the planting of an Ethno botanical garden which will be outside the building fence line and open to the general public upon project close out.

 

The commissioning process will ensure that building systems are tested and adjusted for proper operation.  A rooftop photovoltaic system is also being pursued as part of our “green” initiatives.

 

Work schedule during holiday weeks

When there is a state or federal holiday during the week, the contractors work longer hours on the other days to maintain the schedule. We’d like to assure our neighbors that the contractors will not begin noisy work before 8:00 a.m.  While they make every attempt to be done by 5 p.m., some work will need to be continued until 6 p.m.  (per the contractor’s noise permit) to ensure the schedule is maintained.

 

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.

 

When will the project barriers be removed?

The black construction barrier will be taken down when the project ends at the end of May 2012. The Ethnobotanical garden will then be accessible to the public.
