  • For more than 30 years, the Building Industry Association of Hawaii has held an annual building and design competition. The Renaissance Competition has created a spotlight for hundreds of commercial and residential projects throughout the State of Hawaii. This year, we are excited to announce that the competition will now be called the Building Industry Design and Construction Awards. Together, with the National Kitchen & Bath Association Aloha Chapter (NKBA), BIA-Hawaii is once again prepared to reward the finest construction and design projects that our industry has to offer. This prestigious annual award competition recognizes the diversity and excellence in quality construction and design of new and remodeled projects.
