The Hawaiki station is an approximate 2,700 square foot (SF) modular building with a 400 SF generator room located on a 0.61-acre parcel. The onsite facilities include a loading dock, parking, fuel tank, and utilities including an individual wastewater system consisting of a septic tank with leach field. The Storm water runoff is disposed in onsite seepage wells. Belt Collins supported the Environmental Assessment and permitting of the undersea cable installation and landing station, including completion of a traffic analysis for construction and operation of the facility. The civil engineering design for the site was approached to comply with permit conditions by siting the building away for the highway and have it fit into the residential character of the neighboring properties and minimizing grading of site and disturbance of sloped area at the rear of parcel. The civil design included the layout, grading, water, sewer and drainage systems, connection to the State highway, pavements and fencing. Layout plans for the horizontal directional drilled cable from the coast, across the highway and into station were also prepared. A National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for construction of all the improvements was also processed. The station was developed meeting the Owner's goal using modular construction to save cost and fast-track start-up of the facility.

The Hawaiki submarine cable provides 43 terabits of carrier-neutral data capacity to Hawaii through six fiber pairs connecting the cable landing station in Kapolei to the U.S. west coast, Australia, New Zealand and American Samoa. The submarine cable was installed by horizontal directional drilling along its 9,300-mile trans-Pacific alignment surfacing at the Kapolei station. Belt Collins’ civil engineers worked on numerous aspects of the station development from securing entitlements to serving as civil engineers of record for the site improvements and landside cable installation.
