New 'Honolulu Advertiser' plant gets machines and manager

"We expect to be pretty much done with the building by mid-December," Production Director Martin Black said last week of The Honolulu Advertiser's new production and distribution facility in Kapolei, about a 20-mile drive west around Pearl Harbor.

With the building enclosed, most of the remaining work consists of roofing over the metal decking, completing mechanical and heating, ventilation, and cooling systems for the mailroom, applying a synthetic plaster insulation to wall panels, painting, installing floor coverings and fire sprinklers, and some electrical work.

The synthetic plaster will create much of the visible exterior. Its application "is a tedious process," Construction Process Manager Larry Fukanaga said, "because you have to trowel the right amount onto the... foam panels" or other surfaces. "It's really durable stuff," he added. "The color is mixed in with the material" by incorporating colorant in the final coat or applying a paint that integrates itself with the plaster. Either way, said Fukanaga, it minimizes any need to paint or repaint.

The press hall is the structure's most complete part -- readied for the arrival earlier this month of the first units of two MAN Roland Regioman presses valued at $30.8 million. Shipped to a harbor only two miles away, those one-around doublewide units are in, and technicians continue work on MAN's Aurosys paper-handling equipment, while BEK Systems puts in the ink-supply system.

A few issues had yet to be resolved, but "for the most part," Black said, "we're in pretty good shape." Those issues were the subject of a meeting last week that included representatives from Gannett corporate, the architects, and others. Black said there seemed nothing that couldn't be fixed by those now working on the project, though who will pay for any extra or remedial work had not been determined.

But Black said there are no serious cost overruns for the $29.5-million plant, and Fukanga agreed, saying work on the press hall's window wall will meet the scheduled Dec. 18 completion date.

An engineer was retained late last month to consult on certain outstanding issues related to the window wall system: its weatherproofing, amount of thermal expansion and contraction, ability to withstand some deflection of underlying steel framing, and compatibility of the glass panels and cladding. …
