Moana Surfrider Hotel – Exterior

The renovation of this historic hotel, the fabled “First Lady of Waikiki, included painting and renewing the exterior details with award-winning restoration architect Virginia Murison. The exterior details consisted of replacing and accurately replicating various lanai railings, overhang fascia, cast concrete elements and decorative brackets, while remaining faithful to the hotel’s Historic Registry listing. Also key to job success was the ability to work quietly, quickly and carefully under guest room windows. “Allied Builders’ crew was communicative, field-solution savvy and very good with scheduling details. It was a pleasure working with them,” said Murison.
