Hawaii Job Corps Center

Hawaii Job CorpsThis women's dormitory is located on the slopes of the Haleakala Crater on Maui. The overall building length is 124 feet. The dormitory has eleven suites; one suite houses four students. Each suite has four closets, a toilet room, a tub/shower, and two sinks. The building includes a study, lounge, laundry room, resident advisor's office and a mechanical/electrical room. The interior covered walkway is along an "open to the sky" landscaped atrium courtyard, which allows the students access to their individual suites. The exterior siding is horizontal vinyl to blend with the lap siding of the existing structure, which dates back to the 1900s. The windows are vinyl double-hung with 6 over 6 grids, to keep with the look of the existing building.

The manufacturer designed and built the roof system in the factory to accept a site-built roof connection, completing the connection of the front of the building and the back.

Due to the length of this building a recirculation piping system, using an aquastat and expansion tank, was designed to provide hot water from the water heater source, throughout the entire building. This system saves energy as well as delivering instantaneous hot water to each suite.

Because this building is at 2,000-foot elevation, air conditioning was not required. Instead, the building has over fifty windows allowing the Hawaiian trade winds to keep the rooms cool. The building was installed on piers and foundation blocks; anchor bolts were used to connect the module frame to the cmu footings. All structural lumber and sheathing was pressure treated to avoid termite infestation.
