Keolu Drive Channel Emergency Stabilization Project

Project Description

Client:   City and County of Honolulu
Location:   Kailua HI, 96734
Year Completed:   In Progress

MIRA Image got contracted by the City and County of Honolulu to temporarily stabilize the slope embankment along the existing Keolu Drive channel. This job is currently still in progress.

The Challenges

The main problem we encountered at Keolu is the water flow and having to adapt around it. Debris had to be cleared and a drain system needed to be added to push water away from the job site. Our machines weren’t able to reach where excavating needed to be done so all digging needed to be done by hand and a conveyor belt needed to be installed, pushing the dirt up the slope and into a bin. By doing so it made working conditions a little easier and safer for MIRA.

Papakolea Subdivision Sewer Improvements

Project Description

Client:   State of Hawaii
Location:   Papakolea, HI 96813
Year Completed:   In Progress

The State of Hawaii contracted MIRA Image to update phase 1 of the Papakolea Sewer Improvements project which we are still currently working on. Our purpose is to repair and/or replace damaged and undersized pipes and to upgrade sewer improvements which will then comply with the City and County standards.

The Challenges

One of the biggest challenges we faced while working on the Papakolea project is the weather. Rainy conditions made excavating hard to complete being that some of the work needed to be done on slopes which became a huge safety risk for MIRA. A lot of community interaction also played a role due to the fact that work needed to be done in the homeowner’s yards.

Ala Moana Sewer Improvements

Project Description

Client:   Ala Moana Center
Location:  Honolulu, HI 96814
Year Completed:   2019

The Challenges

Being that the Ala Moana ground parking lot where work needed to be done was below sea level, a lot of water would have to be pushed out. Changes and additions to the plans from the owner’s of Ala Moana delayed the completion of the job. Work needed to be done during the night being that the mall is open during the day, challenges we faced were having access to some of the material needed.
