In addition to its dredging and waterfront activities Hawaiian Dredging constructed some landmark projects that include Honolulu’s King Kalakaua Building (Main Post Office) and the Honolulu Museum of Art (fka Honolulu Academy of Arts) both of which are included in the National Registry of Historic Places.
Following World War II, Hawaiian Dredging and Hawaiian Contracting merged to become Hawaiian Dredging Construction, Ltd and went on to build much of the roads and highways for the then territory of Hawaii. The thirty-year string of major accomplishments was capped off with the completion of Phase I of the Ala Moana Shopping Center, billed as the largest open air shopping center in the world.
In a partnership that would lead to a long relationship, Hawaiian Dredging served as the prime contractor for Kajima Construction Services in completing the five-star luxury resort, Hualalai, on the Big Island.
By 2005, Hawaiian Dredging had gone on to complete the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine in Kakaako and major civic projects including the General Purpose Apron & ASAP Building at Maui’s Kahalui Airport, the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor Floating Docks, and the Kealakaha Stream Bridge replacement on the island of Hawaii before constructing the unmistakable twin towers of the Moana Pacific residential condominium.
Our diverse portfolio includes the construction of shopping centers, hospitals and medical facilities, State highways and bridges, major hotels and resorts, military housing and defense facilities, industrial parks and power plants, high-rise condominiums, airport and waterfront improvements, and other major county and state improvement projects.
