Arita‐Poulson General Contracting, LLC renovated two‐story ING Direct Building located at 1958 Kalakaua Avenue located in the heart of Waikiki. It is a spectacular newly renovated interior building that features a design theme combining ING DIRECT’s unique banking character with a Polynesian flare. APGC worked closely with the architect and owners of the project to design assist the “unique” features of ING Café. Extreme involvement required excellent communication skills between all parties including coordination of the sub‐contractors, suppliers and vendors. APGC managed the project development and constructability process which encompassed the Hawaiian theme and modern high‐tech components. ING Café is truly a work of art!
