M E D I CA L FAC I L I T Y P R O J E C T Hale Pawaa (HRT-MOB)—General Contractor: Kiewit Building Group—is a 10-story medical office building located right in the heart of Honolulu, Hawaii. Hale Pawaa is a structural steel building with a parking garage adjacent to the building. Over 400 covered parking stalls are available in this adjacent 8-story secure parking garage. This was an extremely challenging and labor intensive project because of the scope and location. Hale Pawaa required exterior light gage metal framing with heavy gage header boxed beams, sill boxed beams, and post. Scaffolding and equipment for the exterior had to be planned accordingly; V&C used Hydro Mobile Lifts to completely surround the building in order to have a continuous flow of labor. The unique design of the building mandated that each floor vary in height requiring greater attention to detail in order to successfully manage the material ordering process.
