The professionals at HK Construction have kept local ohana in mind as the family business incorporates quality products and the talents of experienced designers and builders throughout each project.

HK Construction has applied its extensive experience as a fourth-generation design-build company to each custom home crafted for Hawaii residents. The company’s 80-plus years of combined experience is rooted in the principles of quality construction, incorporating the feedback of clients and completing projects on time.


Homeowners watch dreams take form on the drawing board before becoming reality, as the design-build company keeps “form and function” at the forefront of every project. The skilled designers and builders at HK Construction continue to provide aesthetic, yet practical upgrades and additions for Hawaii homeowners. Appropriately, the business recently was honored as one of the top construction companies in the 2015 edition of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s Best People’s Choice Awards.

“Because we’re a design-build company, we’re very conscientious about the form of what we design and how it functions properly,” said HK Construction senior design consultant Johnny Makiling. “Oftentimes, a homeowner has an idea of what they want to do with their home but doesn’t know how to properly execute that concept.”

Makiling describes a situation he encountered recently when a homeowner wanted to add another level directly above an existing carport. While another builder told the homeowner it was possible to do by simply shoring up existing beams and supports, the experienced team at HK Construction noted that adding another floor above the carport would be dangerous and may prove disastrous in the event of high winds or a severe storm. To adequately address the extra load created by the addition, Makiling explains that the designers at HK Construction determined that the carport would need to be rebuilt to handle another floor above it. The project ended up costing a bit more than the original estimate, but the job was done safely and the home’s property value increased as a result of the investment.

A positive first step in determining what can be done to build or enhance one’s dream home is to attend one of HK Construction’s free home building seminars. Questions will be answered and interested parties also may set up a free on-site assessment.
