Waimea Canyon Middle School Playcourt Dedicated
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.
Shioi Supports Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii
In early 2021, Shioi Construction sent a team to the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii (BGCH) Lihue Clubhouse to provide in-kind services to upgrade their facility. They replaced the clubhouse's ADA ramp and poured concrete on their courtyard to create a clean, safe outdoor area for the children to enjoy. The time and materials donated toward this project is approximately $5,600.
"The BGCH's services are critical not only for the wellbeing of youth, but for the entire community," stated Conrad Murashige, Shioi Construction Board Chair. "It gave us great pleasure to help the Lihue Clubhouse so that they can continue offering high-quality, affordable programs for Kauai families."
