Working as a consultant to harbor engineers Moffatt & Nichol (M&N), HHF Planners (HHF) was responsible for preparing the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and managing applications for a Special Management Area (SMA) Use Permit and a Conservation District Use Permit (CDUP) for a range of improvements to the 22-acre Kewalo Basin. Now owned by the State of Hawai‘i Community Development Authority, Kewalo Basin will receive upgrades for water, electric and wastewater systems, and will have the existing dock system removed and replaced with new docks that increase the number of vessel slips from 143 to 250. The EIS included studies on water quality, marine biology, archaeology, cultural impacts, historic resources, traffic, and marine acoustics.
