West Loch Modular Rental Housing project units being delivered this week
HONOLULU- On Monday, December 14, the City and County of Honolulu began accepting delivery of 40 prefabricated modular units to its West Loch Modular Rental Housing Project site located at Fort Weaver and Renton Road in Ewa Beach, adjacent to Asing Community Park.The West Loch Modular Rental Housing project will be a three story modular building, with 58 studio units. The ground floor will include a commercial kitchen, dining room, laundry facility and a secured entry and office for the property manager.The units will come furnished with a bed and other furniture.The City is committed to keeping all units affordable for individuals and couples at or below 50% of the area median income.
The general contractor, T. Iida Contracting, Ltd. will oversee the delivery of up to eight modules by truck from Kalaeloa Harbor per day for one week.Upon receipt of the modules the general contractor will immediately start to stack the units by crane into the three story modular configuration and anchor each module.This innovative housing design and construction is the first stacked modular project that the City has embarked upon after having successfully completed single family type modular housing projects such as the Hale Mauliola Navigation Center on Sand Island, Kauhale Kamaile and Halona Road in Waianae.
The City Council had adopted resolutions urging the Caldwell Administration to pursue innovative construction options such as modular housing to expedite the delivery of affordable housing units.The contractor began site work on July 20, 2020 while the modular units were being fabricated off site, thus allowing for an expedited delivery schedule.The project is designed by G70 and the modules were constructed by Horizon North.
