AIA Honolulu Sponsor Spotlight
Mahalo Evergreen by Debra our Kaiaulu Premier Sponsor
As the design and construction industry continues to figure out this new and unprecedented time we are living in, relationships are increasingly important for our mutual prosperity. AIA Honolulu is truly grateful to all our annual sponsors!
Debra Pompadur, AIA Honolulu Local Allied Member, is the Manager/Owner of Evergreen by Debra, which she runs with her husband Jeff Pompadur. They specializes in the sale of ceramic, porcelain and glass tile; outdoor pavers, planters and green walls; and profesional tile consulting. She works directly with architects, landscape architects and interior designers to match them with sustainable, safe, slip" resistant floors and wall tiles that fit within their design concept.
“Tile is inherently green,” Pompadur says. “Its durability provides fewer replacements, the lowest life cycle costs and means less tile going to the landfill compared to softer flooring products.” She’s proud to offer Hydro-Flo Permeable Pavers, the only completely permeable outdoor flooring that can improve storm water quality by helping rain find its way back to the water table and reducing runoff.

AIA Honolulu Members in the Media
AHL in the News with Virtual Easter Egg Decoration Contest
Featured on KHON's website on April 12: Click here to take a look at the creativity of AHL's members as they conducted their 19th annual Easter egg decoration contest virtually.
The eggs are usually put on display for the public to see in downtown Honolulu but this year the competition was held virtually. The theme celebrated those working in healthcare, security, service and other industries on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.
Congrats Deirdre! One of PBN's 40 Under 40 Honorees for 2020
It's Pacific Business News' 21st year hosting the 40 Under 40 awards in Hawaii, so it's only fitting that the theme is "Finally legal."
Congratulations to AIA Honolulu member and former board director Deirdre Stearns, AIA of AHL on both your PBN 40 under 40 Honoree status and your baby!
We are truly happy for you!
AIA National Update
AIA's Online Resource Identifying Alternative COVID-19 Healthcare Sites
Last weekend, AIA launched a new online resource that allows architects, designers, engineers and facility owners to provide design information on COVID-19 alternative healthcare sites. AIA is asking for submissions in order to facilitate information sharing and to establish best practices in response to this global pandemic. As part of the new online resource, architects, designers, engineers and facility managers worldwide can input information on alternative care sites into AIA's database.
Information will appear on the COVID-19 ArchMap, which was produced in partnership with the Kansas University Institute of Health + Wellness Design. The task force developed this tool to catalog current public health and healthcare facility response and to serve as a research database moving forward.
Additionally, the task force has created a preparedness assessment tool to assist individuals—who are not experienced healthcare designers—with evaluating buildings for alternative healthcare operations in a non-healthcare setting during the COVID-19 response.
AIA is encouraging federal, state and local governments to adapt appropriate existing—and especially vacant or temporarily unused—buildings to meet the growing healthcare and quarantine needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
