USACE Awards $53.7M Contract to Pono Aina Management for Temporary Elementary School Construction

HONOLULU, HI — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awards a $53.7 million base contract to Pono Aina Management, LLC, an 8(a) Native Hawaiian Organization, based out of Waianae, Hawaii, to construct a temporary elementary school campus in Lahaina. The temporary school will accommodate those students displaced from the King Kamehameha III Elementary School that was damaged and rendered unusable by the August 8 wildfires in Maui County.

As part of the USACE Critical Public Facilities mission assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to support Hawaii and the state Department of Education, USACE was tasked to design and oversee the installation of modular buildings for the temporary elementary school campus for the Lahaina community. The Galveston District will be responsible for contract management and project oversite.

"The children of Lahaina have gone through a heartbreaking trauma, and the Corps of Engineers, the Department of Defense, and our partners can now help the state bring back a bit of normalcy to these young lives," said Col. Jess Curry, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Recovery Field Office Commander. "This school may be temporary but will stand as a reminder that despite the grief and loss, Lahaina’s children will have a space to continue to learn, to dream, and to thrive. We are proud to be here for them in this moment.”
