Building long term relationships, that philosophy remains the core of Takamine Construction. When the company was founded by Craig and Audrey Takamine in 2003, it was the vision to create a quality construction business that helped strengthen the Big Island community. Born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii and the eldest of five children, Craig learned early on the importance of family and community connections. After receiving his high school diploma from Waiakea High School, Craig enrolled in the Hawaii Community College Carpentry Program, through which he was awarded the Golden Hammer from HPM and graduated top of his class in 1995. From 1995 to 2003, Craig gained experience in all areas of residential construction through working with various contractors, and in 2003, he obtained his own Contractors license. Building his business from scratch with no office space and just two employees was going to be a challenge. However, that year Takamine Construction managed to pick up contracts for 4 new homes. Today, Takamine Construction employs 18 and has built over 50 homes. Projects also include single-family custom residential homes; home renovations and repairs; single-wall repair and renovation; commercial alterations; commercial repair; and maintenance and demolition. Takamine Construction’s continued growth in […]
