University of Hawaii at Manoa, Hawaii Hall

Project Overview

The Hawaii Hall project called for the renovation and restoration of a three-story historic administration building on the campus of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Originally constructed in 1912, Hawaii Hall was the first permanent building for the school.

The complete interior suspended wood-framed floors and roof structure were demolished and replaced with reinforced concrete floors and a steel-trussed roof system, while the exterior concrete walls were patched and treated for preservation purposes. Improvements to the building included the installation of an elevator and central air conditioner, with a separate chilled-water plant.

Due to inaccurate or unavailable records, unforeseen conditions constantly delayed construction. The Nordic PCL team deftly reallocated labor each time, and they successfully managed the schedule to complete the project earlier than expected. Restoring the grace and beauty of Hawaii Hall garnered the project a great deal of recognition, with design awards given by the Honolulu Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the General Contractors Association of Hawaii.
