APCSS Construction Update  February 2012 - Issue #7

Work scheduled for this weekend

New APCSS Director, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Dan Leaf (center) tours the construction site.



The Maluhia Hall project is proceeding safely and without incident.   

This Saturday workers will be on site to perform a power switch over to bring power to the building and begin installation of a new air conditioning system. This requires a power outage which is why it was necessary to do this work on the weekend.  A temporary portable air conditioning system will be placed on site and used for the next six weeks until the new system is up and running. 



Building Exterior Completion

02 MAY12

Project Close Out

28 MAY12

Official End Project

JUN 12


In the next few weeks 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.



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.
