Project Description:

RMTC provided Construction Management services for the new Sunset Beach Recreation Center on the North Shore of Oahu.  The 6,113-square foot recreation center consists of meeting rooms, arts and crafts room, kitchen, storage and offices housed in three separate buildings. Office space will also be provided for the Honolulu Police Department. Outdoor space has been designated for a future "tot lot" playground.

The project includes clearing and grubbing of a previously vacant lot, grading, construction of the buildings, walkways, parking lot, landscaped courtyard, electrical service, water service, septic tank and a leach field (on the adjacent property). The structures are concrete and masonry with wood trusses and fiberglass shingle roofing, flashing and sheet metal, metal fabrications, carpentry, doors and finish hardware, gypsum wallboard, ceramic tile, acoustical ceiling, resilient ceiling, carpet, painting, toilet partitions and accessories, operable partitions, and fire sprinklers.

This project is environmentally sensitive because of its proximity to a drainageway that runs along the northern boundary of the recreation center property and separates this lot from the leach field. RMTC ensured that the contractor installed and maintained the appropriate Best Management Practices (BMPs) to be in compliance with the project's NPDES permit.
