Other Notable Resort Projects:
Hokuala Lot 8 Hotel* - Design of the first phase of the hotel including a 126-unit building, 190 parking stalls, and a new check-in facility. The existing tennis courts at the project site were repurposed to use as part of the new parking area.
Ritz Carlton Kapalua Due Diligence* - Assessment to propose solutions to various site drainage and utility issues throughout the resort. The subsequent phase included preparation of construction drawings for the proposed improvements.
Kauai Marriott Resort Keiki Pool* - Addition of a new 900 square foot pool and water slide along with associated pool deck.
Kauai Marriott Resort Bathers Restroom* - A new 1,300 square foot restroom and towel pickup and new ADA walkway. Design included a new pump station, force main, and relocated 30-inch drainline.
Kauai Lagoons* is the feature resort project consisting of various projects throughout the over 600 acre property tucked below the Lihue Airport and originally constructed in the 1980's. The vast array of projects included 54 half-acre residential lots, the Kalanipuu Condominum & Timeshare consisting of 78 units, the Marriott Vacation Club International Timeshare consisting of 282 units, drainage channel improvements to protect the Lihue Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) from flooding, and dam safety improvements to bring the 395 acre-ft lagoon into compliance with revised standards.

The project also included water, sewer, and irrigation master planning. The resort is entirely irrigated by non-potable water primarily from recycled wastewater effluent from the Lihue WWTP, but also to a lesser degree from various ground water wells that feed the lagoon (no potable water used for irrigation). The irrigation storage consists of two smaller ponds and a very large lagoon. As part of the irrigation master plan, we developed a unique approach to help maximize the storage to supply the irrigation demands during long drought periods. The approach included connecting the two smaller ponds with the lagoon by repurposing an abandoned 12-inch water main that runs approximately 2,000 lineal feet between ponds.
