SeaMaids Bikini Shop

Award Winner: The surfing world of the North Shore of O‘ahu is a place of a certain “look and feel.” Our client wanted to fit into the neighborhood and follow the “keep country country” guidelines of the community. And, because the county holds the right to reclaim the land for other uses, the businesses there face being asked to relocate. SeaMaids came to Hawaii Modular Space, Inc. for a solution. We provided a stock rental fleet 10x24 modular office. To meet the design criteria for the area, she designed a “grass hut” which was accepted enthusiastically by the community. The modular office solution, combined with SeaMaid’s clever design, was recognized with the top award in its category by the Modular Building Institute.

Modular construction allowed SeaMaids to launch a small business that could be moved. The modular office uses blocks and piers on the existing grade, eliminating expensive site foundation work. The community board was pleased because there was no concrete installation, no disruption of the existing landscape, and no noise from construction. The office was delivered, positioned, and installed within 4 hours. SeaMaids was in business in 6 days after delivery.

A site-build contractor quoted SeaMaids $135 per square foot, higher than anticipated. By going with a modular office unit, she was able to construct her “grass hut” exterior and a completed project for $78 per square foot. The block & pier foundation would allow for easy moving.
