Robinson Residence, Makiki Heights, 2011 BIA Renaissance Award Winner

Scope of Work

This 2011 Renaissance Award winning project was for a 4000 square foot new custom home built on the lower slopes of Tantalus. This home features an expansive ipe deck, Fleetwood multi-slide doors, custom built cabinetry, granite countertops, porcelain wall panels and glass tile shower, carved stone vessel bath tub, coral stone veneer and spotted gum hardwood floors. The challenges of this project were the difficult site access, the hillside lot and the tight footprint for the site. As part of the Owners desire to preserve the large trees, the roof design was modified to avoid branches.

Client Comments

“Our project was a complete rebuild on hillside lot with many space and access constraints. It was the rebuild of an old family home, so expectations and demands were very high.

CCS was a pleasure to work with from day one. The bid was detailed, understandable and transparent. Also, CCS provided suggestions to us which significantly reduced the build cost without sacrificing any of the design intent or build quality, such as using standard window and door sizes.

The team CCS assembled for our project was profesional, approachable and courteous. The build quality and the extra effort put in by the builders made it clear they took a great deal of personal pride in the project. Also, the team kept the neighbors well informed and worked hard to keep the noise and disruptions to the surrounding area at a minimum.

The management of the project was accurate, timely and transparent throughout. The few changes that came up during the project, per our requests, were handled fairly and without extra cost. The project was finished ahead of schedule and under budget. Additionally, the small warranty items which have come up in the first year have been handled quickly and fairly.

Most importantly, the final product is far beyond the highest expectations we had when starting the project. The house is a pleasure to live in. The build quality and attention to detail is apparent in every facet of the house. We can confidently recommend Greg, Mike and the rest of the CCS team for any construction project. We look forward to using them again in the future to renovate a neighboring family house.’ -The Robinson Family
