Kalaheo Elementary School

Kalaheo School looked like any other campus in Hawai‘i on the first school day of 2005, only three months after a devastating fire burned down the oldest building of the century-old school. This, thanks to the capabilities of modular construction.

During the site preparation and installation of the modular building, summer school was maintained and temporary classrooms were used while crews were quickly working on the new building. Some classrooms were used as storage for furniture and equipment. Priority was given to finishing the classrooms on time for the school re-opening after the summer break. Once that was done, the construction crew switched its attention to the administrative offices.

HMSI built an almost-identical building to the one that was burned down. Remarkably, the used unit worked out where the size and design almost exactly matched the former building. The new building is equipped with air conditioning and classrooms are insulated against outside noise.

HMSI’s renovation of Kalaheo Elementary School received an Honorable Mention in the Renovated Reuse under 10,000 square feet category from the Modular Building Institute.
