Among the school’s buildings will be a gymnasium, classhouse, library and cafeteria, and an administration building. A football field and surrounding track and buildings for electives will also be incorporated.

G70 is the architect, planner, and civil engineer of record and was hired HIDOE by the HIDOE to design and obtain permits for the project. Groundbreaking on the first phase of the site’s infrastructure construction began in January 2016 and is wrapping up 100% design. The building design is about 40% complete and phase I of the building package will be bid around April 2018.
