Iroquois Point Beach Nourishment
Location: Honolulu, HI
Owner: Hunt Building Company, Ltd./Ford Island Housing, LLC
Completion Date: January 1, 2013
Healy Tibbitts Builders, Inc.’s Iroquois Point Beach Nourishment and Stabilization Project successfully restored and stabilized the severely eroded beach shoreline area adjacent to the Iroquois Point housing complex. The 4,000-footlong shoreline had been chronically eroding for over 50 years, receding 300 feet at the west end, with a resultant loss of 16 shoreline homes in the past 20 years and exposing additional homes to further damage or loss. The project included: removing debris and hazards from the eroded shoreline; constructing 9 new stone groins; and dredging, stockpiling, hauling and placing 100,000 cubic yards of beach sand.
This project was awarded the GCA of Hawaii’s 2014 Build Hawaii Awards of Excellence.
