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 a new sanctuary for Friendship Christian Schools in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, 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 stay within the school’s budget. CHI also worked closely with financier First Hawaiian Bank.
A unique shape of the sanctuary posed a challenge toward designing the steel erection. 3-D modeling was utilized during the shop drawing phase to ensure that in the field all components would fit perfectly.
It was a rewarding experience for CHI to participate in building the school’s first large construction project, and the general contractor looks forward to being involved in future phases as the school expands its campus.
