Master Plan Update - October 4, 2020
The 2nd pre-construction services meeting was conducted on 9/2/20. The focus of the meeting centered on.  The focus of the meeting centered on building components.

Foundation
  • A review of the geotechnical report conducted by Geolabs was discussed with primary input from Tim Goshi, KAI Hawaii (structural), Gerald Seki, Geolabs (geo tech), Gavin Hubbard, Design Build (GC).
  • Discussion focus was soils stabilization and whether the need for probing & grouting was necessary to assurethat the footings are solid enough to handle the weight of the church.
  • Design Build had performed the probing & grouting for Campbell HS & their additions. He indicated that due to the nature of the coral soils probing uncovered slightly less than 50% voids/cavities requiring grouting.
  • It was decided that it would be too risky not to perform the probing & grouting.
Steel vs. Glu-Laminated vs. Wood Framing
  • Structural steel is a significant cost item so the discussion was whether instead of structural steel w/wood cladding it could be replaced with Glu-Lam structural components & still provide for fire rating, constructability,and reduce significant cost.
    • Design Build can self-perform Glu-Lam work, but not structural steel.
    • Glu-Lam would require termite treatment.
    • Glu-Lam would also require monitoring for termites over time & treatment in the future.
    • KAI (structural) will review what sizes the Glu-Lam beams must be to support the structure.
    • Will revisit once KAI has reviewed & evaluated. If feasible cost analysis will be completed.
CMU (Concrete Masonry Unit) vs. Framed Walls
  • CMU provides for better acoustical properties, but framed walls would require some type of finish system on the exterior walls (EIFS -exterior insulation finishing system).
  • EIFS could add cost to the framed walls that make CMU a better choice.
  • More discussion & investigation of cost components are required.
Floor Finishing Options
  • Polished concrete vs. epoxy vs. Ardex or other finishing system.
  • Design Build can self-perform plain polished concrete. Did not recommend staining afterward due to color inconsistencies.
  • Design Build also commented on the difficulty to cut circular pieces of tile envisioned for the baptismal font & sanctuary.
  • Design Build also commented on pre-colored concrete for the center aisle if more than one truck/pour dueto color inconsistencies.
  • Ardex would require that the center aisle be 2 or 3 inches lower than the rest of the floor.
  • Domus will review other options that remove porcelain tile from the center aisle & circular features on the sanctuary & baptismal font such that we can evaluate efficacy/cost.
Ceiling Options
  • Wood ceiling is a significant cost item and options need to be considered despite good acoustical & aesthetic properties.
  • One suggestion was to use wood slats.
  • Gyp board by itself does not have good acoustical properties.
  • Domus will work with Idibri to develop alternative materials that will provide some acoustical properties such that we can develop cost comparisons & eliminate some of the wood.
Liturgical Elements
  • The baptismal font will be part of the building structure & performed by Design Build. Domus will provide more specific instructions to Design Build as we move closer to finalizing construction elements.
  • Many of the liturgical elements; pews, altar, ambo, credence table, stations, etc. will not be part of Design Build’s contract and those elements requiring installation will be provided by the GC (i.e. pews, altar, ambo).
  • Coordination will take place a bit later in the process.
