Building for today’s ‘ohana culture’

By Kyle Galdeira Posted in: RemodelRenovating

For more than 40 years, HK Construction has kept local families on the forefront of operations as the fourth-generation family business incorporates quality products and the talents of experienced builders and designers throughout each project.

With Hawaii’s unique ohana culture, through which family members care for young or elderly relatives in multigenerational households, HK Construction puts an emphasis on building or rebuilding homes for customers looking to create more interior space to accommodate their growing families. These types of building projects encompass children moving back home with kids of their own and focus on allowing older residents to “age in place” by creating a safer environment for the elderly, without sacrificing their freedom or lessening mobility.

HK Construction is well-versed in completing these projects with a focus on keeping lifestyles of all family members intact. Hawaii’s unique topography includes slopes and hillsides, along with limited space for expansion, and poses building and design challenges that HK Construction has routinely conquered seamlessly. Various design elements become important factors when facing these issues, but HK’s vast experience gleaned from building on Oahu for nearly over half a century allows the business to guide homeowners through the process in what yields the most economical and functional home possible.

As homeowners learn about various building materials and the diverse methods of installation, the skilled team at HK Construction takes the time to explain the pros and cons of the various options that work best with the specific property. HK Construction’s designers average 15 years of experience in remodeling kitchens and bathrooms and are members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association as well as the American Society of Interior Designers — a noteworthy distinction that provides valuable peace of mind for homeowners.

A positive first step, in learning about the home-building process and determining what can be done to enhance one’s existing home, is to attend one of HK Construction’s home building seminars. Questions will be answered at that time and interested parties also may set up a free on-site assessment.

HK Construction will be holding three seminars this week: Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Pearl Country Club; Friday, March 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Blaisdell Exhibition Hall conference rooms; and Saturday, March 28 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at American Savings Financial Services Center in Kahala.
