Friendship Christian School Sanctuary
Architect: Architectural Design Group Inc.
Size: 5,000 Square Feet
Construction Cost: $4,515,000
Client: Friendship Christian Schools
Completion: April 2016
The construction of the new sanctuary for Friendship Christian Schools was the result of a four year partnership between Constructors Hawaii Inc (CHI) and Architectural Design Group Inc. During this time, CHI worked closely with the architect in a design assist role to phase and value engineer the project to meet the school’s budget. CHI also worked closely with First Hawaiian Bank, who financed the project for Friendship Christian Schools.
The unique shape of the sanctuary posed a challenge to the steel erection. 3-D modeling was utilized during the shop drawing phase to ensure that all components fit perfectly in the field.
It was rewarding to be able to build the school’s first large construction project. We look forward to any future phases as the school expands its campus.
