Hawaii Training Center Sets Groundbreaking

The Hawaii Carpenters Union will break ground on its apprenticeship and training center at the Kapolei Business Park on Feb. 22.

The Hawaii Carpenters Union Training Center will be home to the union's four-year training program for construction apprentices and journeymen.

The three-story, 56,000-square-foot centers sits on 2.7 acres at 2040 Lauwiliwili St. Construction is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2009.

The union, which bought the land for approximately $3.7 million, expects to spend $15 million to build the center. It will have at least 10 classrooms, a wood shop, conference rooms and hands-on training areas.

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
