Hawaii Army National Guard – Waihawa Armory

Allana Buick & Bers, Inc. (ABB), was asked by the Hawaii Army National Guard (HIARNG) to provide consulting mechanical engineer services to assess the condition of the existing air conditioning plant of the Wahiawa Armory.

The Waihawa Armory is a two-story concrete and masonry structure approximately 100,000 SF in size located in Wahiawa, O’ahu.  First constructed in the early 1950s, a second story was added in the mid-1990s.  In keeping with the mission for all Federal and State entities, the State of Hawai’i Department of Defense Army National Guard (HIARNG) desires their assets to be as energy efficient as possible.

The assessment and upgrades included power and controls, air handling units, conduits, pipes and ductwork.  After the findings report was issued, a basis of design letter and construction documents were prepared, and the project was put out for bid.
