HAPI at the ACECH Symposium

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Hawaii (ACEC Hawaii) conducts a symposium for Hawaii’s engineering, architecture, and construction industry representatives to learn about current and future initiatives by State, City & County of Honolulu, and Neighbor Island County agencies.  This year’s event was held on April 6th at the Hale Koa Hotel.

HAPI had a display table thanks to the generosity of Mark Tawara of Manageability offering us his table spot.  As shown in the photos below our table had our “Life Cycle of a Road” exhibit along with our “25th anniversary brochure” and other HAPI giveaways (pens and stickers, post-it pads, etc.).

Our participation provided an opportunity to catch-up with the over 130 design consultants and presentation speakers (see listing of speakers below) in attendance.
