Nighttime construction slated for University of the Nations
The University of the Nations, located at 75-5851 Kuakini Highway, Kailua-Kona, will pour concrete for its new cafeteria and multimedia center from July 24 through 27. The decking supporting this concrete gets extremely hot during daytime, which causes the concrete to cure too quickly and crack, so the work must be performed at night.
The concrete slab will cover 30,000 square feet. When the project is completed, a portion of the building will support Hawaii Island’s film industry.
Building & Design Expo set for weekend
The Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce presents the eighth annual Building & Design Expo from Friday to July 22 at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa. On Friday, the event is open to the public from 5 to 8 p.m. and includes a no-host bar and musical performance by Joe Conti from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

More than 50 exhibits will feature home design, construction and remodel ideas including home decorating; roofing and decking; flooring and window treatments; kitchen and baths; solar products and more. Vendor booths offer products, services and information relating to the building and improvement of homes, apartments and condos. A variety of local plants will be for sale.
New this year is a grand prize giveaway consisting of products and services offered by participating vendors. Valued at more than $3,000, the giveaway will go to a lucky expo attendee. The drawing is at the close of the expo on July 22; winner need not be present to win.
