James A. Hoapili Jr.


Associate, Project Manager

James brings a positive outlook into every project, whether he is serving as project manager, construction administrator, or sustainability coordinator. With over 17 years of experience in Hawai‘i, James has a keen understanding of Hawaiian culture and traditions, as well as sustainable design which has led many of his projects to achieve LEED certification. He lives aloha by leading his colleagues with compassion and a mindset for accomplishing any goal. “Don’t mistake aloha for weakness,” he says. James works hard and plays hard, whether he’s tackling a project or playing football with his daughter. His favorite quote that can be applied to work or life is, “Go Big or Go Home.”
