Robinson Construction Co. broke ground this week with a spiritual blessing for the new Lowe’s Home Improvement store along Pakaula Street at the Maui Business Park.
The new store will be the “Taj Mahal” of all Lowe’s stores because it will be the company’s newest and feature more products and displays.
The new store is 22 percent larger at 94,000 square feet compared to the existing Maui store of 77,000 square feet. Lowe’s has been at the current location of Maui Marketplace since 1999 and the new store is only moving a short distance down the road. Lowe’s will be one of the anchor stores for the Marketplace.
The new Lowe’s will have LED lights and other modern features and provide customers with approximately 400 parking stalls.
Construction work on the new Lowe’s store is the latest development in Kahului’s new commercial development.

Recently, one of our site superintendents, Andrew Palomaki, visited the AP Environmental Science class at Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale, Washington.
Bill Wilson, the class teacher, contacted us regarding the Silverdale Trails project. He asked that we come and present to his classes information on construction stormwater management and environmental challenges construction companies face. The presentation included many hot topics such as site preparation, installation of infrastructure to control stormwater runoff, installation of permanent stormwater structures to mitigate effects on local water sheds and careers in the construction industry.
The presentation was a success!
“Students are now aware of all the hoops that construction companies have to jump through to protect the environment…It raised their awareness of future career options in construction management.”
At the Silverdale Trails site, we have completed over 33,500 SF of lock and load retaining walls and paved the construction entrance. Through the use of a wheel wash system, we have been able to control the amount of mud tracked onto the public roads.
The site is now to grade and over the next couple of weeks we will be building the soldier pile walls on the northwest corner of the site. We will also be setting the 240 panel precast cover for the storm water detention vault, beginning installation of underground utilities, and installing rock for the future parking lot.
