A Maui general contractor is nearing completion for the construction on the long-awaited University of Hawaii Law School Clinical building on Oahu.

The $9.3 million project was constructed by F&H Construction, with offices in California and one on Maui, located along Wili Pa Loop in Wailuku. F&H’s construction of the two-story, 8,200 square foot building began in 2016 and was completed earlier this year, with media tours of the building scheduled for today along with a blessing on Friday.

“Absolutely, the law school is very pleased to have been working with F&H Construction,” said UH Law School Associate Dean Denise Antolini. “I’ve worked very closely with them since the beginning of this project – they’re very dedicated and solved many challenges. I have to give a shout out to Dan Blackburn (F&H Construction Hawaii Division Manager) and his crew,  it’s been a really great a partnership.”

According to University officials the building was 13 years in the making and started with a vision from  former Chief Justice William S. Richardson, who wanted to create a place where law students could help people in the community with their legal issues.

“Immigration law, elder law, child-custody cases, or landlord tenant or Native Hawaiian or environmental rights, this building will help us train them how to practice law to help community clients,” Antolini said. “It’s a very special mission.”
