Hawaii Modular Space (HMSI)

Public Relations — Advertising — Corporate Communications

Hawaii Modular Space had been a client of H&P for more than five years. The company was recently purchased by Williams Scotsman who retained H&P to transition the account to its internal marketing department and provide insights into making HMSI programs applicable to its other offices throughout the mainland and Canada.

Over the past 5 years, H&P worked to build HMSI brand across Hawaii, and in Alaska for its subsidiary, Alaska Modular Space. The attributes of that brand are:
• HMSI, a licensed general contractor, is the leading modular space distributor across the Hawaiian Islands.
• Alaska Modular Space is a major distributor in that market.
• HMSI has a corporate culture of community involvement and support.
• HMSI is considered a great place to work in Hawaii.

In business since 1987, HMSI now has 50 employees at its local office in Campbell Industrial Park. HMSI distributes factory-built mobile offices, storage containers and custom modular buildings. Pre-constructed, the structures are delivered in modules, either complete, or assembled on site.

You’ve likely seen Hawaii Modular Space temporary office trailers all around the islands. Besides selling and leasing these trailer and container fleets, HMSI provides customized units that have been used for: community and recreational centers, medical clinics, computer rooms, communication shelters, training centers, classrooms and laboratories. The spaces can be built pre-wired for high-tech industry. An excellent and award-winning example of an HMSI customized project are new classroom and office buildings at Chaminade University.

The HMSI Makana Hui program supports nonprofit organizations promoting health, education, and overall well-being of children and families in Hawaii. The committee also seeks to encourage philanthropy among employees through example and education.
