Announcement of Repair Work Slated for Aliiolani Hale:
Notice: The Hawaii State Judiciary will be repairing and restoring the exterior and interior portions of Aliiolani Hale, the historic building in downtown Honolulu that houses the Hawaii Supreme Court, Supreme Court Clerks Office, Law Library, King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center and other programs. Construction will begin after Memorial Day and is scheduled to last through the end of the year.
To minimize disruptions, much of the noise-generating work will occur during the evenings and weekends.
The History Center will still be open to schools, tour groups and other visitors. The Supreme Court Clerks Office, Law Library, and other offices in the building will operate as usual. Public use of the building for weddings and other special events, however, may be curtailed during the construction period.
The scope of the work includes repair and restoration of the roof, facade, clock tower, broken walkway, and interior spaces damaged by water and termites. Built in 1874 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Aliiolani Hale has long been in need of repair.
Construction project updates will be posted on the Judiciary's website.
