Nan, Inc. was awarded an up to $400M contract to relocate utilities in the 4.2 mile City Center section for the Honolulu Rail Transit Project. These utilities stood in the path of the future elevated rail columns, guideway, and stations. Driven by task orders, Nan, Inc. tackled utility relocation in the Kalihi, Iwilei, Chinatown, Downtown, Kakaako, and Ala Moana areas. Nan, Inc. performed wet ulility relocation consisting of water, sewer, gas, and drain lines. The dry utility relocation included electric, cable, telecom, traffic lights, and street signals.
