A Place to Call Home for Many Years to Come
BY LUIS ALICEA
When it comes to remodeling, HK Construction has a great deal of experience under its belt. The fourth-generation company has designed and remodeled homes in Hawaii for more than 80 years. The company focuses on quality building, acquired through its use of products that guarantee durability and through its team of seasoned consultants in the building and designing fields.
The high quality of HK Construction’s final products is enough to create misconceptions that the company only services high-end consumers. Contrary to popular belief, the family business most commonly caters to mid-range homes. The firm obtains its materials from suppliers utilized by other businesses, making HK Construction competitive and affordable to the average homeowner in Hawaii.
The fully insured and bonded design-build firm is known for its wide range of projects, including “aging in place,” a term used by the Center of Disease Control to describe the process of making a home safe for the elderly to “remain in their community all their entire lives.”
HK Construction aims to make a comfortable lifestyle more accessible to senior citizens. “We want to ensure the home is user-friendly when entering their golden years,” explained Johnny Makiling, senior design consultant at HK Construction.
“Due to the high density of senior citizens in Hawaii, the general populace thinks aging in place is expensive,” said Makiling. HK Construction’s team of building specialists and design experts work in partnership to create elderly-friendly bathrooms with curbless showers to avoid accidents as well as wide wheel-chair-accessible doorways. The company offers consultations for owners who are unsure if they require aging in place. “Plan ahead and examine the possibilities,” added Makiling.
For homeowners who have yet to consider aging in place, the home can be readied for future residents. “Often, there are middle-aged adults who plan on their parents living with them,” stated Makiling. “It’s better to do it now when you can than waiting until you need it.”
HK Construction has divisions dedicated to remodeling many parts of the home, such as kitchens and bathrooms, with the average designer possessing 15 years of experience in his or her field. The designers are members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and the American Society of Interior Designers.
No matter the size or complexity of your project, HK Construction is available to design and create your dream home.
