We have been on the mainland during our construction, so we initially had a great deal of concern about choices and decisions that might be made with limited input from us. That concern has turned out to be completely unfounded for two reasons. Primarily, Matt and MarySue of HFS have done a terrific job of communicating with us. They have been very proactive in contacting us to discuss any issues that have come up, as well as sending us photos and other information on a regular basis. Secondly, in a couple situations where there was some flexibility in how specific construction details should be addressed, the approaches suggested by HFS have been first-rate. They have consistently come up with solutions that are a great balance of structural, aesthetic, and budgetary considerations. It has been a pleasure, both personally and professionally, to work with HFS.

As owner builders we knew we could not do it all on our own. Matt led us through the shell construction and demonstrated time and again with his knowledge and skills that we made the right choice. His crew worked together in a cooperative precision way that was a delight to watch. You will get no fancy hype and broken promises, just down to earth people that take great pride in their work.

We hired Hamakua Framing to do what we thought would be a number of cosmetic, work place and lobby changes to our 130+ year old, 3 story office building. Unbeknownst to us, we had some very extensive and complex structural problems that they uncovered. The HFS team patiently , practically, and proficiently helped us make all the needed change decisions. Their attention to detail, the quality of their work, and the professionalism of their crew* resulted in a renovation that we are all extremely proud of, resulting in a much improved atmosphere and work environment for both our staff and members as well as extended life for our historic building.
