    Layton Construction Company was recognized by Hawai’i Business Magazine with the Kukulu Hale Awards for the construction of the 20,000 square-foot facility that sits on five acres and provides live-in space for 16 adolescents to receive treatment.

Layton Construction Company was recognized for its work on the Adolescent Treatment and Healing Center in Kapaia by Hawai’i Business magazine in its October edition.

The magazine awarded Layton an annual Kukulu Hale award in a celebration of the best of Hawai‘i commercial real estate.

Since the late ‘80s, the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties’ Hawai‘i affiliate has served as the state’s foremost association of development industry leaders and decision-makers.

The magazine’s annual Kukulu Hale Awards program celebrates the best by honoring individuals and organizations that have enriched the community through their projects, professional achievements and civic service.

“Timely communication was key during this project,” said Will Summerhays, Layton executive vice president. “We wanted to address any potential scheduling needs and challenges, and we worked with our subcontractors to get ahead of long-lead items. We held weekly meetings with the client to ensure open and timely communication, and addressed any potential challenges before they became an issue.”

The award recognizes individuals and organizations that devote time to projects they claim to enhance the community through professional achievement and civic service.

One key in the success of the project was Layton partnering with local subcontractors.

Kaua‘i County partnered with Layton to complete the construction of the 20,000-square-foot facility that sits on five acres and provides live-in space for 16 adolescents to receive treatment.

“The project itself solved a major community need,” Summerhays said.

“The closest treatment facility prior to the completion of the Adolescent Treatment and Healing Center was a plane ride away on O‘ahu, forcing teens to spend time away from their families.”

The center features an outpatient wing, a volleyball and a basketball court, a certified kitchen with a cafeteria, and classroom space for parents to participate in the rehabilitation of their child.

“This treatment center is not only a place where youth go to get help, but it also becomes their “home” while they are receiving treatment,” Summerhays said. “One key difference with this project is we are trying to create a feeling of a home and comfort residence rather than provide commercial space.”

With the $7 million dollar project, which took 11 months to build and 16 years of advocating, they were able to build a facility that took 48,000 man hours to complete.

“We had zero accidents on the job, allowing all those who worked on this project to go home safe every day,” Summerhays said. “We could not have done this alone and greatly appreciate the opportunity to be a part of such a meaningful project.”

    It is very interesting to see once again, publishings regarding Kapaia treatment center and the Layton builders, subcontractors or their partners for this award of, “best Hawaii commercial real estate” via Hawaii Business News. Since the medical vendors for this project were responsible for the Hilo veterans hospital deaths due to noncompliance with the virus, it has been, in this case, made widely known that due to lagging permitting processes, this Adolescent Treatment Center facility is being “eyed” up by the state/COK and tragically, it is rumored that Justin Kollar P.A., Rapozo P.I., and the victim witness program Department staff is considering moving to this location to do business and the building performing, not as an adolescent treatment center but a new office resource for this government department, their desire to move out and as far away from their current offices surrounded by courthouse judiciary arrangements. Currently and for as long as this KPD/Courts/transportation complex was built, this “department”which is housed 2nd floor, across the Hall from KPD chiefs! Im asking why this takeover is being considered? Is this true, or is this rumor/misimformation? Im inquiring for those tented at Lydgate south kamalani park and inquiry for a dozen Opio, that would benefit from this facility if and only if it moves forward as a treatment center and not to house the Prosecuting Attorney and that hui that is a big part of the unjust activities that continue to put our island, its descendants and tenants at risk, under the Kauai bus, where we know facts to fiction. We continue to depend that soon RICO/FBI/DEA will advance Again to Kaua’i to investigate and REinvestigate this and many other activities that border on continuing deep state terrorism, fraud, corruption, collusion, and cabal on every moku, poised as “leaders”, politicians that have only one agenda, Their own deeper pockets, staight up!
