KEAWAKAPU HOME, MAUI – PUTTING GREEN PROJECT

As Maui representative for Southwest Greens Hawaii, we recently completed a large putting green and artificial turf project for a homeowner on beautiful Keawakapu Beach. The process took several days, including the removal of the existing lawn (we reused the material at another location), surface preparation and precise fitting of the material into the existing landscape.

NEW: HYDROCHILL™ HOME COOLING TURF

It’s no secret that synthetic turf can become hot, especially during the summer months in Hawaii. With HydroChill you now have the ability to control surface temperatures by 30-50 degrees once hydrated by irrigation, rainfall or dew.
Extensive testing in both laboratory and real world outdoor settings have produced a revolutionary product. Once hydrated it can last for days, slowly releasing moisture and cooling surface temperatures. HydroChill ‘naturally’ grabs moisture so rainfall, dew or simple watering immediately resets the process and puts you in control. HydroChill last for years and its simplicity makes your life just that much easier.

THE ANDAZ MAUI – COOLING TOWER We just completed this project, which required creativity and customization to solve the client’s view problem and stand up to the weather elements. The remodel of the old Wailea Beach Resort  into a modern Andaz (Hyatt) Hotel required some way to cover the view of the Cooling Tower Units which were visible upon entry to the Resort. We fabricated aluminum columns, and with our partner RVS Construction, mounted them onto the wall and secured 150 feet of fabric panels to block the view.  Done just in time to be tested by Tropical Storm Flossie… it came through without incident!

OBJECTIVE: HIDE THE COOLING TOWERS. COLUMNS IN PLACE

COOLING TOWERS – NOW COVERED FROM VIEW

KaBOOM! PLAYGROUND – WINDWARD YMCA (KAILUA) More than 200 volunteers broke a KaBOOM record on Saturday May 25th, by building playgrounds at the Windward YMCA in Kailua in less than 4 1⁄2 hours! With Playworld Systems equipment for the two play structures and stand alone pieces, this is the third playground built for the Hawaii YMCA by the national organization KaBOOM. Starting from children’s drawings of their “dream playground,” and sponsored by Disney, the volunteers were from the YMCA, the Armed Services, the Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa and the Kailua community. What a “feel good day!”.  If you ever want to give back to the community and see instant gratification for your efforts… stay in touch and participate in the next KaBOOM community playground build.
