Last Friday, AACE Hawaii Section members and friends visited the American Savings Bank (ASB) Campus construction site, located west of downtown Honolulu.

The ASB Campus project is a new ground-up, 10-story office building that will serve as the headquarters of American Savings Bank in Hawaii. This project encompasses a total of 327,533 SF, of which 99,881 SF is office space spread over four floors with just over 11,000 SF of back-of-house support areas and lobby on the first level. The majority of the remaining square footage in the building is garage space for the capacity of 520 vehicles.
