Marriott's Ko Olina Beach Club is one of the premier timeshare properties in the exclusive Ko Olina Resort area. Phases 2 and 3 of this project encompassed the construction of the 382,000-square-foot, 14-story Hale Moana building, the build-out of seven units in the existing Hale Kona building, and a 162-stall elevated parking structure on a 3.8-acre site. Nordic PCL performed design-assist preconstruction services for this project.
During construction, Nordic PCL encountered two product failures: the roofing membrane failed twice, and the sliding door privacy shutters contained fabrication flaws. When the roofing subcontractor failed to adequately address the problem, the project team worked quickly secured delivery of an acceptable product from the manufacturer. They also dealt directly with the shutter manufacturer to obtain replacements. In both cases, the problem was solved without cost or schedule impacts.
There was also a severe labor shortage due to an overheated market. Through careful resource balancing on all projects, the project team avoided straining Nordic PCL's self-perform workforce. As a result of our partnering approach and longstanding relationships with our subcontractors, Nordic PCL was able to leverage excellent performance from them, avoiding all associated risks.
