Oahu Cemetery, Support Building and Crematorium

Just wanted to send you a note to express our appreciation of the level of professionalism and care that Constructors provided to us during the construction of the new crematory building and grounds maintenance shop. These two buildings were not without their significant challenges! The way in which your team handled it all was in an exemplary manner with a very high quality of workmanship, solid communication and responsiveness on everyone’s part. We are indeed most grateful!
— Scott Power, President Oahu Cemetery & Crematory

Architect: Mason Architects

Size: 2,200 Square Feet

Construction Cost: $1,757,500

Client: Oahu Cemetery Association

Completion: April 2015

Constructors Hawaii Inc worked in collaboration with Mason Architects and Heath Construction Services to build a new support building and crematorium for Oahu Cemetery. Jobsite and logistics management were critical as the project was boarded by the existing crematorium, graves, and fish pond.

Another challenging aspect of this project was the waterline tie-in from Nu’uanu Avenue to the new crematorium. During the waterline work an archeologist was always on site in case of the discovery of bones or other artifacts. Fortunately, no bones were found and the new water system was successfully installed.    

The crematorium equipment was craned in before the roof was installed. Overall, this job posed many physical barriers but Constructors Hawaii Inc was able to accomplish the project on schedule.
