Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii restores five arched roof systems on Honolulu's Harbor Court

Located along the waterfront in Honolulu's central business and financial district is Harbor Court, one of Honolulu's most recognized landmarks. Built in 1994, the 41-story building has 120 luxury condominiums, 18 floors of commercial space, and several restaurants and retail tenants on the ground floor plaza.

Designed by Norman Lacayo, Harbor Court's tiered form is sun-oriented to interact with light and shadow. Its distinctive blue glass gives a modern appearance and provides occupants with mountain, Honolulu Harbor and ocean views.

Because of the building's height, strong wind gusts and salt spray from the harbor severely damaged the arched metal roofs. After withstanding 19 years of constant battle with brutal elements, in December 2012, Harbor Court's five steep-slope arched roofs underwent replacement performed by Commercial Roofing & Waterproofing Hawaii Inc., Honolulu.
