Target Teams up With dck The library at Kailua’s Blanche Pope Elementary School got a facelift from the Target School Makeover Program in May thanks to the support of dck pacific construction, LLC and two local subcontractors. Renovation work on the 4,000-square-foot facility began in late April and was completed on May 23. Target donated the flooring, paint, shelving and a new interior designed by Target architect David Meyer, while dck pacific donated cabinetry and approximately 500 hours worth of labor to the project. In addition to the renovations, Target donated seven books for each child to take home after the completion of the project as well as new computers for the remodeled facility. Jade Painting and Alii Flooring each donated 80 hours of manpower to install new wall treatments and flooring. Bill Maguire, dck project manager, says that Blanche Pope Elementary was one of about a dozen schools Target considered for the project. Maguire said that Target reached out to dck pacific as the general contractor for the volunteer project because it was the contractor for both its Kona and Kapolei stores. Working with Blanche Pope and the state Department of Education was a “fantastic” experience, says Maguire. “It was really easy to work with them. It was a real team effort. The students were excited too – they were always trying to peek into the room and see what was going on.” Bill Maguire and Roger Peters, respectively, dck’s project manager and executive vice president, stand in the middle of the newly renovated library. Target, the primary sponsor of the library renovation program, plans to open a $40 million, 130,000-square-foot store in Kailua in July 2012.
