Construction Update - Saturday Work

In order to meet the construction project  deadline, our contractors will be doing interior work on site for the next few Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 


The work will include installing drywall and air conditioning ducting and it will all be internal to the building.


This work is necessary for the current July 31st project end date.  In addition to this Saturday, work will be required on June 30 and July 7 and possibly July 14 as well.


The schedule will depend on how quickly this work can be completed so follow on installations can happen.  Once the drywall and ducting is completed, the carpet and walls will be installed.  This will allow completion of the HVAC balancing and furniture and AV equipment installation. 


Landscaping, flagstone, the green metal perimeter fence installation and finishing are the next major phases.


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

When is the project going to be completed?

Last minute changes, corrections, and improvements to the building have extended the deadine from the beginning of June to an anticipated completion date of July 31st. 


Why can't the contractor turn off their back up beepers or lower the volume?

While there are options to do this within OSHA regulations, the Army Corps of Engineers contract regulations prohibit the backup beepers from being altered and do not allow for other options such as flagmen or volume controls.  We have forwarded your suggestions for updates to the ACE Safety Manual reviewers at their headquarters.


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.
