Kobayashi, Inc.: Trump Tower Waikiki JANUARY 10 www. bus- ex. com 83 Today the company continues to hold to the original founding principles of versatility, community involvement and hard work, and this year it was recognized as 39th in Hawaii- Business magazine's Top 250, a ranking that has been improving year on year. According to the Building Industry Association, the company is the fifth-largest building contractor in Hawaii and provides a wide range of services from pre- construction budgeting and feasibility studies to construction and full project management. It operates across a wide range of construction sectors including hotel, residential, school, healthcare, restaurant, recreational facilities, cultural center and commercial building construction. Among its many achievements is the construction of the Hawaii Medical Service Association Center, an energy- efficient building featuring vertical concrete fins and horizontal shelves that reduce total air conditioning and lighting demand by 25 percent. With a total floor area of 111,000 square feet, the center was opened in July 1995. Another project of national importance was the Luce Pavilion at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts, a project that included a gift shop, outdoor cafe and two 4,000- square- foot art galleries. Opened to the public in 2001, the pavilion was connected to the original Academy via a perforated wall on the stairway.
