Hawaii DOE Facilities Branch Queen Liliuokalani Campus Sustainable Remodel

front

Due to Dwindling enrollment the Hawaii Department of Education decided to close the Liliuokalani Elementary School in Kaimuki, and move the offices for their Facilities Development Branch to the campus. The remodel captures the broad external walkways connecting the classrooms to be used as office space, and provides vertical circulation using an inclined walk instead of an elevator. There was a funding advantage to the DOE to combine the walkway and ramp improvements with solar PV panels, which provides a strong visual message to the community that the State of Hawaii is progressive and sustainable.
