III.B. Physical Resources

III.B. Physical resources, which include facilities, equipment, land, and other assets,
support student learning programs and services and improve institutional effectiveness.
Physical resource planning is integrated with institutional planning.

III.B. Descriptive Summary

Facilities utilized by the College include a main campus on Dillingham Boulevard and five
additional satellite programs at various locations:
        Automotive Mechanics Technology, Kokea Street
        Diesel Mechanics, Kokea Street
        Marine Educational and Training Center, Sand Island Access Road
        Airport Training Center, south ramp of the Honolulu International Airport
        Pacific Aerospace Training Center, Kalaeloa Airport
        Pearl Harbor Apprentice Program, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard

The College’s main campus is situated in the Kalihi-Palama district, approximately two miles
north-west of downtown Honolulu. Twenty-one buildings, including two high-rise and several
two-level multi-functional structures, occupy over twenty acres of land. Most of these buildings
were constructed between 1930 and 1970, with an exception of the Kokea Training Center which
was completed in 2008. A concrete pedestrian mall, located in the middle of the campus,
provides walking access to most buildings.

The majority of classes are held at the main campus. The Computing, Electronics, and
Networking Technology Building and the Trade Industrial Complex are designed and furnished
for specific program majors, while most of other buildings are for mixed instructional activities.

One of the high-rise buildings, Building 2, was constructed in 1979. Its ground floor houses the
Bookstore, Student Life and Development offices, Student Lounge, and Health Office. The
Kapalama Media Center, located on the second floor, is a state-of the-art conference facility with
a maximum occupancy of 180. The Media Center’s entry way includes a Dinosaur Exhibit
completed by volunteers from the College and from the community.

Building 7, another high-riser, is the location for many instructional support programs including
the Library, Learning Skill Center, Educational Media Center, distance education studio, and
informational technology office. The Library occupies the first and second floors while the other
offices occupy the third floor. The Educational Media Center also operates a print shop which is
located in another building away from instructional activities.

The College’s cafeteria is located in Building 4. It consists of a kitchen, food and supply storage
area, food service counter, large dining area, and a main stage. The cafeteria is open during most
of the instructional hours including evenings and Saturdays.

The Operations and Maintenance Department occupies its own one-storey building which
includes storage areas, small maintenance shop, staff lunch room, and supervisor’s office. The
IIIB Draft, 4/5/11

building is the base-yard for the operations & maintenance staff whose work areas include the
main campus and satellite facilities. The Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services (VCAS)
oversees all activities related to facility maintenance, repair, and improvement.

At the main campus, four parking areas are available for students, as well as a small parking lot
for visitors. At the present, these parking areas have a maximum capacity of ?? vehicles.

Six academic programs are located off the main campus:

The Automotive Mechanics Technology and Diesel Mechanics Technology Programs are located
about half a mile south-west of the main campus, on Kokea Street. Spreading over a seven-acre
property, the facilities include two one-storey buildings and a large parking area. Both buildings
are designed to accommodate specialized training activities in automotive and diesel mechanic

The Marine Education and Training Center, a 4.86-acre waterfront property, is situated on Sand
Island Road. In addition to a two-storey building, the facilities include two finger piers and
securable parking area. The Center’s building houses classrooms, offices, workshops, and
specialized equipment appropriate for the Center’s instructional activities related to repair and
maintenance of marine vessels.

The Aeronautics Maintenance Technology is located on the south ramp of the Honolulu
International Airport. It occupies 4.77 and encloses nearly 46,500 square feet of hangar space,
storage areas, classrooms, and offices.

The Pacific Aerospace Training Center is located on two parcels totaling 6 acres at the Kalaeloa
Airport (former Naval Air Station at Barber’s Point). The Center occupies 132,621 gross square
feet, with 32,400 assignable square feet.

All instructional activities for the Pearl Harbor Apprentice Program are conducted at the Pearl
Harbor Naval Shipyard, a federal facility managed by the United States Department of the Navy.
Though the College manages the Program under a contract with the Shipyard, it has no control
over operations and maintenance of the facilities. Concerns regarding physical structures and
equipment are addressed directly to the Shipyard administration.

The current Strategic Plan addresses energy conservation, sustainable development well as
commitment to maintain and improve the existing physical environment. (Hyperlink Honolulu
Community College Strategic Plan Update 2008-20015,
Specific actions and responsible parties, identified in the Implementation Planning Framework,
allow meaningful means to monitor the progress of the College’s goals.

Beginning in 2010, the College initiated a process of updating its Long Range Development Plan
(LRDP). The last LRDP was completed in 1996. Various opportunities were initiated to allow
inputs from the faculty, staff, administration, students, and the community. “The outcome of the
LRDP planning process and community involvement is a comprehensive plan that guides
physical development such as the location of buildings, open space, circulation, and other land
uses. In addition, the plan addresses issues related to traffic, parking, and other forms of
infrastructure, as well as a heightened commitment to environmental sustainability. The 2010
LRDP envisions a campus that will have greater definition at its edges; improved facilities for
the campus community; more sustainable infrastructure; and enhanced landscape– all well
integrated to create a setting that meets the ever-evolving needs of a modern college.” (hyperlink

III.B.1 Descriptive Summary (relating to safety & security only)

The College strives to comply with the safety and health regulations established by the Hawaii
Occupational Safety and Health (HIOSH), Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.
Although HIOSH regulations apply only to employees, the College applies the same safety
standards to classroom and workshop activities involving students. Instructors are responsible
for ensuring that students strictly follow safety rules and that equipment is in the safe operable

The College’s safety management system follows its health and safety policy which prescribes
safety responsibilities, hazard identification and correction, and other safety management
principles to ensure a safety and healthful learning environment. The Vice Chancellor of
Administrative Service (VCAS), with assistance from the Health and Safety Coordinator and the
Health Nurse, is responsible for the implementation of the College’s Health and Safety Program.

The Health and Safety Committee includes representatives from the administration, each
academic unit, and student organization. The Committee meets once a semester at the Safety
Meeting which is open to the entire campus. The main purposes of the meeting are to provide
update information on safety issues and facility improvements, to conduct mini-emergency
IIIB Draft, 4/5/11
Chulee Grove

preparedness exercises, and to solicit feedback on various safety, health, wellness, security, and
emergency planning issues.

Two subcommittees meet regularly to address specific issues on emergency planning and
wellness. The Emergency Planning Subcommittee is in the process of finalizing the College’s
Standard Operating Procedures: Emergency Operations
(http://honolulu.hawaii.edu/intranet/committees/epc/pdf/EAPappenAsopD3April08.pdf) while
the Health and Wellness Subcommittee plan regular activities to promote wellness, reduce stress,
maintain a healthy lifestyle, and improve productivity.

The Health and Safety Steering Committee is consisted of the Vice Chancellor Administrative
Services, the Health and Safety Coordinator, and the Health Nurse. They meet regularly several
times during the semester to conduct safety and health walk-through surveys of the main campus
and satellites facilities, to evaluate and prioritize hazards, and to follow-up on corrective action.
Throughout the semester, the Steering Committee also maintains regular communications with
members of the Health & Safety Committee and the campus at-large via electronic means.

Faculty and staff members are responsible for the day-to-day accident prevention activities
including safety surveys of facilities and equipment, hazard and injury reporting, preliminary
incident investigation, and hazard correction. Safety training is required for all classes involving
equipment, machinery or hazardous tasks. In addition, health and safety competencies are
included in the Technical Standards for many of the CTE programs. The Health and Safety
Coordinator provides safety consultation and training for all members of the College when

Chulee Grove

According to the Hawaii Occupational Safety Health Division (HIOSH), employers are
responsible to ensure a safe and healthful working environment that is free of recognized
hazards. The College applies HIOSH standards for all activities at the main campus and satellite
facilities. Students, employees, administration, and visitors are required to follow safety rules
and specific safety precautions. The College’s Health and Safety Program set forth policies on
hazard identification, reporting, and correction. It also specifies steps to be taken when there is
an accident, including accident reporting and investigation.

The campus-wide Health and Safety Committee includes more than 40 designated Safety
Liaisons all academic unit, including those from the off-site programs. Safety Meetings are held
once a semester to provide members with updated information on facility changes; safety,
security, and emergency preparedness issues as well as to obtain inputs from the members on
those issues. Safety communications for the campus at-large are mostly through electronic

The Health and Safety Steering Committee, consisting of VCAS, Health and Safety Coordinator,
and the Health Nurse, meets several times during the semester to conduct safety walk-through
surveys, evaluate hazards identified from the surveys, explore corrective options, and prioritize
actions. The surveys are conducted at the main campus and off-site facilities. Survey reports
listing hazards and recommended corrective measures are sent to VCAS, the Deans, and
Division Chairs responsible for the areas where the hazards are discovered.

Instructors, especially those high-risk programs, are required to provide safety training to
students prior to allowing students to engage in any hazardous activities. Faculty and staff
members are encouraged to report hazards to the Health and Safety Coordinator, to VCAA, to
the Dean, or to the Division Chair. Injuries and illnesses are reported to the Health Office and
documented by the Health Nurse. The Health and Safety Coordinator reviews the injury reports
to spot trends and identify areas that need immediate attention. Recommendations on preventive
strategies are submitted to VCAS for implementation consideration.
