Hickam AFB Historic Housing Renovation

Mason Architects is the historical architect on a design/build team with Actus Lend Lease, LLC to renovate and restore 636 residential units – single-family houses, duplexes, apartments, and a Community Center -- in the Hickam Historic Housing District. This project is part of the privatization of all military housing under the control of the Air Force's 15 Airlift Wing.

  • MAI provides drawings and specifications for the renovation and restoration work.
  • MAI consulted with the Base Historic Preservation Officer and the State Historic Preservation Office to gain their concurrence on the conceptual, schematic, and final designs.
  • The houses and apartments were built between 1937 and 1941 for officers and enlisted men and are eligible for listing on the National Register.
  • Work follows MAI's Building Preservation Plan, completed in 2003, which identifies historical features and guides future modifications to the buildings.
  • MAI also completed Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) documentation on each building type.
  • MAI worked with the Air Force and state, federal, and community agencies to develop a Programmatic Agreement to safeguard Hickam's cultural resources during privatization.
