EFCO’S HELPING MIDAMERICAN REACH HIGHER ALTITUDE
The Des Moines-based power company will get the added height by building the wind turbine tower from concrete instead of steel, a first for the company. The extra 100-plus feet enables the turbine to capture more wind energy, the utility said.
PACREP LLC, a private Owner/Operator/Developer headquartered in California will be opening a luxury hotel and condominium tower in the heart of Waikiki. The Ritz-Carlton Residences is a 37-story highrise scheduled to open in early 2016. PACREP LLC’s development team included General Contractor Albert C. Kobayashi, Inc. of Waipahu, Hawaii, who once again chose EFCO as their partner to supply a complete forming package for the concrete on the 37-story tower and lower podium shops.
