The project team designed the project to meet LEED for Homes Silver Certification. Utilizing less energy and less water, LEED-certified spaces save money for residents, reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a healthier environment for the residents and neighborhood. The renovation program will create over 100 construction jobs and will consist of low-E windows, low VOC paints and sealers, super-efficient lighting and electrical systems, water saving faucets and toilets, energy efficient appliances, solar thermal hot water systems, solar photovoltaic, and cool roofs to reflect heat away from interior spaces. Community spaces will include a 2400+ square foot resource center which will provide residents with a variety of useful spaces, including a library and computer center, multi-purpose rooms, prep kitchen and laundry facilities. Additionally, the center will include a reception and lounge, a manager’s office, storage spaces, a restroom, a covered waiting area. A minimum of 5,720 sq. ft. of park space between the buildings will be dedicated to open space for picnic areas, play areas for the keiki, and a tot lot. Custom designed and fabricated signage and hand painted murals will be found throughout the project. Completion of construction is expected in November 2020.
