The Waikiki Shopping Plaza and Waikiki Business Plaza buildings are located in the heart of Waikiki. The retail renovation consisted of modernizing the appearance of the main entrances with metal accents, stone cladding, and precast composite concrete wall fascia panels. The Business Plaza phase included design-build structural modifications of the 19th floor to accommodate a new restaurant and bar.
Nordic PCL's Special Projects division suggested holding weekly SWAT Team meetings for collaborative RFI and submittal review. Similar to a charrette, the PCL team met every week with consultants, subcontractors, and client. The agenda was prioritized by critical issues with a goal of obtaining immediate solutions. This process successfully led to several meetings where there were no RFIs to discuss.
