‘Builder of the Year’ offering monthly seminars

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

Homeworks Construction will present a new series of free “Build New Or ReDo” seminars in 2019 on the first Tuesday of every month, according to company president and chief administrative officer Marshall Hickox.

Named “2018 Builder of the Year” by the Building Industry Association of Hawaii, the design/build firm has presented its free building and remodeling seminars for the public for the past 20 years.

“Initially, the seminars were held at various locations, including restaurants and hotel banquet rooms, but with completion of our Homeworks Building on South Beretania Street in 2010 the seminars were moved to our new showroom,” Hickox said.

“We find that the more intimate, casual atmosphere is conducive to greater interaction between attendees and the speakers, as well as among themselves. People are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity for one on one consultations with the speakers — a feature that makes our seminars distinctive. “A lively question and answer period usually follows the presentations, which cover a wide range of topics including custom home building, remodeling, additions, kitchens and baths, and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU). Then, typically people browse our extensive sample collection, which includes the latest trending products in home accessories, fixtures, flooring options from wood to engineered, three cabinet lines, and a variety of tiles for shower-surrounds, countertops, and back-splashes.

“Currently, there’s a great deal of interest in Accessory Dwelling Units, as well as age-friendly and multi-generational design — then, many of the people who come to the seminars are trying to decide whether to remodel or rebuild. If they are interested in pursuing a project, they can make an appointment for a private consultation at our conference room or at their job site. Many of our clients made their first contact with Homeworks at a Build New Or ReDo seminar.

“We request that those interested in attending a seminar call ahead for reservations. Smaller groups are preferable to ensure that we have a chance to speak with every person individually and get their questions answered. If the number of reservations exceeds the capacity, we’ll schedule a follow-up seminar.”

Homeworks Construction has completed more than 1,000 new custom home and remodeling projects on Oahu, winning numerous awards over the years. Since 1999 Homeworks has been ranked among the nation’s Top 500 Residential Remodelers by Qualified Remodeler magazine.

Hickox, who is serving as 2019 president of the Building Industry Association, will be the principal speaker at the first seminar of the year on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Homeworks Showroom located at street level in the Homeworks Building at 2111 S. Beretania St. Hickox is shown in the photos accompanying this article conducting a Build New Or ReDo seminar in the Homeworks Showroom and at a sample display in the Showroom.
