NEW HOME Campaign Update
PBS Hawaii is moving forward with our NEW HOME at the corner of Nimitz Highway and Sand Island Access Road in Honolulu.
A local company that's been leasing the site, American Electric, is vacating the property to make way for site work. Meantime, we're finalizing an agreement with a respected general contractor.
Construction of The Clarence T.C. Ching Campus of PBS Hawaii is to begin later this year, with completion in early 2016. We thank our Hawaii community for contributing $23 million toward the $30 million goal! We're still striving to reach our goal. If you'd like to help, please mark your check NEW HOME or go to www.PBSHawaii.org/newhome for more information.
General Contractors in the House
We had a succession of construction professionals walking the building here today at PBS Hawaii in Manoa. They were checking out our TV studio and broadcast equipment set-up on behalf of their companies.
Six general contractors, selected from an original field of 13 strong applicants, are planning to submit bids to build our new home along Nimitz Highway in Kalihi. During this process, they've been asking good questions and they've consulted outside specialists in television "integration."
We're looking forward to seeing their ideas and their prices for translating a 21st-century design by architectural firm Group 70 International into a striking two-story building in one of the most heavily traveled corridors in Honolulu.
