The concept of the skate park was a result of a senior project of two King Kekaulike High School students. As seniors, they wanted to jump start the skate park project, since their community was the only one left on Maui without a place for skateboarders.
GBI was the prime contractor, responsible for completing the support infrastructure, with bowl ramps and other features. It required 370 cubic yards of excavation (using GPS guidance) and 530 cubic yards of embankment, 300 linear feet of sidewalk, underground drainage connected to a storm chamber, ADA ramp, parking, and underground utilities.
The 15,000 square foot skate park is located at Pukalani Park in upcountry Maui, and features half-pipes, quarter-pipes, rails, ramps, ledges, and steps. Before it’s completion, some eager individuals wanted to “test it out.” This posed a severe safety concern, as there was exposed rebar and equipment on site, so GBI temporarily welded chain around the project until it was completed.
