Hanauma Bay

Honolulu, O'ahu

G70 provided the Master Planning, Design, Environmental Impact Statement and Permitting Services for this world-class nature preserve. The Master Plan repositioned the park as an overall managed resource, creating educational and service areas in a manner indiscernible from the public approach to the floor of the Bay. The Hanauma Bay Marine Education Center was designed to blend in the scenic landscape and environmental sustainability of the Nature Preserve.
