2022 Q1 No Ka Oi Highway Hui Award Recipient: Bowers + Kubota

The Adopt-A-Highway program on Maui has named Bowers + Kubota the first No Ka Oi Highway Hui Award recipient of 2022.

Bowers + Kubota provides construction management, architectural and engineering design firm services throughout the state, and has offices on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Island. For well over a decade, the company's employees have participated in Adopt-A-Highway cleanups across the islands.

"Bowers + Kubota operates on a set of core values that we call SWIFT: Superior Quality, Wellness, Integrity, Family and Teamwork. Everything about our company is built on these principles," said Todd Niemann, senior associate. "Participating in programs like Adopt-A-Highway is just another way we act on our values and show that it's not about taking, it's about giving back."

Niemann said that community service activities like their Adopt-A-Highway cleanups also serve to promote company bonding outside of the office. "We always have a lot of fun during our cleanup events. We love being out there in the community, getting honks of appreciation as everyone drives by. It's a very rewarding feeling."

Organizations in Maui County interested in signing up for Adopt-A-Highway can search for available highway segments at HWY-M's stormwater website, www.stormwatermaui.com. Applications, cleanup forms, a safety training video, and program information are also available on the website.
