HAWAII MEDICAL SERVICE ASSOCIATION KEAAU BUILDING

Founded in 1938, the Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA) is a nonprofit  independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

HMSA opened a new 20,000 SF facility, housing administrative staff and a call center, which sits on a two-acre parcel of land in the town of Keaau, on the Big Island. The building’s design is reminiscent of the plantation era, complete with gabled roofs, ample overhang, and breezeways.
RLB teamed with architectural firm, Ferraro Choi & Associates, to provide cost estimating services.
