Akima LLC‘s Cazador subsidiary has supplied furniture, fixtures and equipment to a new research facility run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Hawaii.
The NOAA Inouye Regional Center sits on a 35-acre campus on Ford Island and the agency conducts fishery, coastal, atmospheric and climate studies in the Pacific Ocean out of the center, Akima said Dec. 5.
Cazador coordinated with Walsh Construction to furnish private offices, workstations, conference rooms and other facilities for 700 staff and contractors who will occupy the research center.
“We are pleased to play a role in preparing this historic site so the people of NOAA can carry out their important mission,” said Tami Hellman, a Cazador project manager.
The Akima unit is also helping the agency move laboratory appliances and specimens, library materials and satellite equipment to the Hawaii building.
NOAA’s research center holds a gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council‘s LEED program.
