Mid-Pacific Institute, founded in 1908, is an independent, co-educational, college-preparatory school offering preschool through grade 12 education. Belt Collins had the opportunity to provide overall campus planning and assist in implementation of key facilities, including the Hartley Math, Science & Technology Complex/Weinberg Technology Plaza and the Elementary School Campus by providing entitlement permitting, design and construction contract administration services.

From the mid-1990s and into the 21st century Belt Collins assisted Mid-Pacific Institute with planning and design services. Mid-Pacific Institute is a private college-preparatory school serving 1,500 students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade. Mid-Pacific Institute’s 34-acre campus is located in Mānoa, adjoining the University of Hawai‘i. The 2007 Long-Range Master Plan prepared by Belt Collins focused on guiding the campus redevelopment with a plan clustering the High, Middle, and Lower schools in distinct villages, while opening up and consolidating athletic fields in the lower campus areas, thus preserving the existing garden setting and views of surrounding Ko‘olau mountains. Belt Collins also authored, processed and maintained the schools Plan Review Use permit with the City and County of Honolulu.

The site grading addressed the interconnection with existing buildings and downslope open fields.

The projects for which Belt Collins provided design services range from play courts, temporary buildings, and parking lots to the Hartley Math Science Technology Center/Weinberg Technology Plaza and Elementary School. Development of the Technology Center/Plaza, for which landscape architecture and civil engineering designs were provided, encompassed work on approximately 2 acres of the campus, including the buildings, fire access lane and storm drainage facilities. The site grading addressed the interconnection with existing buildings and downslope open fields. Maintaining a thorn-less kiawe as a site feature and gathering space for students was incorporated in the site landscaping along with access stairways around the building. Utility services included extension of fire protection, sanitary sewer and irrigation lines.

The Elementary School was developed as a 3.6-acre campus within the overall school grounds, under a fast track design and construction program, expanding Mid-Pacific Institute’s curriculum to offer pre-kindergarten through 5th grade education. Wilcox Hall was retained and renovated to serve as the Elementary School administrative center with 8 additional classroom buildings added around a central courtyard. Belt Collins provided Site Plan Review processing and civil engineering design for the Elementary School campus. The civil/site improvements included a subdrain system for the grassed courtyard area, bus turnaround and passenger loading/unloading area, fire lane construction, a drainage retention area and new utilities. Incorporated in Belt Collins’ design package for the Elementary School were landscape architectural and civil engineering improvements for the Institute’s softball field.
