PJKK Federal Building - Hawaï

Beaubois in Hawaii

Beaubois has entered the market in this part of the world by participating in the renovation and modernization of the PJKK* Federal Building & US Courthouse.

The firm will be providing the architectural woodwork for the Bridge Courtroom, an imposing courtroom resting on a bridge linking two buildings. Using koa, a local hardwood, the Beaubois team will produce and install the judge's bench, lawyers' and bailiff's desks, witness and jury boxes and acoustic panels. As a finishing touch, it will mount strips of the wood, carved in relief, on the walls.

Located on the former site of Fort Armstrong, built in 1907 to protect the port of Honolulu, the new courthouse will be part of a complex where the number of stories of the neighbouring buildings gradually increase to nine, the tallest being the federal building.

When the work is complete, the building will use 30% less energy and will be eligible for LEED® Silver certification. In addition to the mechanical and electrical improvements and the addition of new fire and security systems, the alterations will involve the construction of a six-storey atrium, new entrances and the renovation of the building. The landscaping will also be reconfigured to better accommodate pedestrian and vehicle traffic.

Located in what is considered to be Hawaii's historical general headquarters, this location is the central point for services provided to the million residents of the 137 islands of the archipelago.

*Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Piikoi (1871-1922). He was a prince of the reigning House of Kalākaua when the Kingdom of Hawaii was overthrown in 1893. He later became a politician and was the first native Hawaiian and member of a royal family to be elected as a delegate to the United States Congress.
