Shioi Lends a Hand to Hale Halawai Ohana O Hanalei
This summer, Shioi Construction Inc. replaced the flooring in all three of Hale Halawai Ohana O Hanalei’s main buildings. The floors were more than 25 years old and in dire need of renovation. Hale Halawai received a grant from the Atherton Foundation to purchase flooring materials, and Shioi Construction donated all of the installation labor.
The new flooring helped Hale Halawai accomplish their goal of clearing out the original office space and converting it into another classroom for a homeschool group, an additional space for the afterschool keiki program, and a space for general community use. Hale Halawai’s Executive Director Kati Conant said, "With this generous donation of time, skill, and aloha, the new space is more inviting and available to our whole community. Mahalo, Shioi Construction!"

The Waimea Canyon Middle School covered playcourt that Shioi Construction was contracted to build was dedicated in March 2020. The Garden Island newspaper reported that Waimea Canyon Middle School Principal Melissa Speetjens described the covered playcourt as a multi-function structure because the school will be using it for physical education and other school functions. The community will be able to enjoy some of its functions suitable for the structure’s architecture.
Shioi's work scope included all of the site work, masonry, and concrete footing; installing new AC units; sheathing on the roof and walls of the metal nuilding; interior electrical and concrete at the stage, playcourt, and sidewalks around the building; and installation of the sound system, play equipment (basketball backstops and hoops and volleyball posts), fencing, and flooring.
