Oahu Cemetery, Support Building and Crematorium
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.
