Repairs for earthquake-damaged church progressing

By Associated Press

KAPAAU, Hawaii (AP) — The demolition and reconstruction of the 153-year-old Kalahikiola Congregational Church in Kapaau on the Big Island is moving forward.

The walls of the North Kohala church crumbled after two large earthquakes struck off the Big Island in October 2006.

The refurbishing is expected to cost $1.1 million, but may be even more if the floor needs to be rebuilt and the pews restored.

The work began in November, but has been delayed by insurance negotiations, historic landmark issues and hiring a restoration team.

The church's insurance will cover as much as $1 million of the cost. The church is seeking donations to help with the rebuilding.

Glenn Mason, of Mason Architects Inc. in Honolulu, was selected as architect. Waimea-based Kikiaola Construction Co. is the contractor.
