Named after Hawaii’s first representative to U.S. Congress, the nine-story Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (PJKK) Federal Building and adjacent five-story U.S. Courthouse are home to the U.S. District Court, U.S Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Attorneys, Social Security Administration, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and the U.S. Marshals.
A single Program Development Study (PDS) performed by Interactive Resources was split into two separate phases to facilitate the timing of funding. The objective of the PDS for alterations and renovations was to make improvements to selected building components which would reposition the asset for long-term use and provide a comfortable, modern working environment for federal workers. Sustainable design principles were utilized within the context of preserving a civically-significant building to achieve a LEED Silver Standards for new construction. Phase one included the renovation of eight federal and magistrate courtrooms and 12 federal/magistrate judge’s chambers. Phase two consolidated 57 government agencies in a U.S. Federal Building Modernization.
