Groundbreaking Shovels For Traditional Ceremonies In Hawaii

Do you need groundbreaking shovels for traditional ceremonies in Hawaii? From groundbreaking shovels to hard hats, red carpet, stanchions and rope, and many more items, has the essentials for memorable groundbreaking ceremonies in Hawaii. Groundbreaking ceremonies are traditional, architectural rituals that in ancient times were meant to consecrate the ground upon which construction would take place. Today, it is done as a formality, if at all. However there seems to be a surge (maybe thanks to our great blogs!) in raising conscience of what it means to break ground for a project that up to then, lived only in architectural plans. Large corporations and construction companies see the promotional potential in these events and we are seeing more groundbreaking shovels hitting first dirt! Hawaii is known as one of the top honeymoon destinations in the world, and a huge tourist destination in general, but technological advances in Hawaii's construction industry are making the housing development more efficient, and thereby more affordable. The construction boom in high-rises may have hit a plateau in Hawaii, but is busy ensuring that before the Aloha State's next spike in cranes up in the sky, the ancient volcanic ground is properly dedicated with our ceremonial groundbreaking shovels!

General Contractors like Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, for example, which has a legacy that goes back to the dredging of Pearl Harbor's main channel, Ala Wai Canal, to enable the development of Waikiki, the vacation destination of the world, is a company we admire for the growth and diversity they've experienced. Hawaiian Dredging leads the industry in construction service projects that range from hospitality, commercial, and residential to institutional, healthcare, and major infrastructures.

The Niumalu Marketplace broke ground in Kailua-Kona last year in June. Located in the heart of West Hawaii, the Niumalu Marketplace is luring big name retailers and food chains such as Safeway into the community. What was truly unique about this groundbreaking was the consecration of the ground, a tradition in Hawaii that is steeped in the spirit and culture of the islands. The ceremony was carried out by Kahu Danny Akaka who learned the ancient chants from oli master and priest, Khu Keli'i Tau'a. The invocations in this groundbreaking ceremony were as close to the ancient traditions of this architectural ritual as we can have these days, but it is an indication that traditions of our ancient cultures, are finding their way into our modern world. With this in mind, continues to strive to provide the best groundbreaking shovels to properly honor these traditions, and also make available products that will enhance the ceremonial aspect of the event, such as display stands for the ceremonial shovels before, and after the actual sod-cutting. Staging the ceremonial shovels on their stands, dressed with the hard hat and color bow, will provide a photo opportunity for the guests and attendees. For this purpose, we have ready-to-go groundbreaking kits that include the display stands, as well as the basic kit, which is the groundbreaking shovel and hard hat.
