The Clarence T.C. Ching Hall houses the Freitas Administrative Center, Marianist Center of Hawaii, the Paul and Vi Loo Student Center, and the Paul and Vi Loo Theater.
Ushijima Architects, Inc. (UAI) is currently working on a 25,500 s.f. renovation of the basement, first, and second levels of Ching Hall. The Project, which is divided into seven phases, will span over seven years and has a total estimated construction cost of $6,000,000. Construction of phases 1 through 5 is complete; construction of phases 6 and 7 is anticipated to be complete in fall 2016.
UAI’s scope of services includes programming, furniture inventory, cost estimating, contractor consulting, design and construction documents, construction administration, interior design, project management, and selection/procurement of interior furnishings. UAI worked collaboratively with the University to prepare a relocation plan for its employees that identified surge space for displaced staff during construction.
