Pumehana Elderly Housing Renovation
Architects Hawaii provided investigative, construction/bid document, and construction administration services for this 21-story high-rise that contains 139 low-income elderly rental public housing units: 98 studios and 40 1-bedroom units and one 2-bedroom unit located on the second floor.
Built in 1972-1973, this structure required concrete and masonry spall repair, repainting and replacement of deteriorated metal doors and frames. The surface of the upper parking level needed to have a new traffic coating applied and the roofing needed to be removed and replaced. Parapets of both the high and low roofs required replacement.
High performance elastomeric and acrylic coatings were specified to provide increase longevity for the concrete and masonry portions of the building. High performance epoxy coating was specified for all of the exposed metal items on the building for the same reason.
This structure required numerous structural repairs and architectural finishes. Asbestos abatement and Lead Based Paint abatement also were required.
