I was introduced to Elite Pacific Construction shortly after they started in 2004, and I have had the pleasure of working with this high-quality and professional firm several times as a design-build partner. This includes building a set of T-Hangars for the Hawaii Department of Transportation Airports Division at Kalaeloa Airport on Oahu and completing a major renovation of the Hickam Fitness Center at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Elite Pacific’s staff were thorough, organized and focused, and had a mutual respect for the design team during the design-build process. Together we were able to develop and execute solutions, navigate several challenges and move the projects forward. I would not hesitate to recommend Elite Pacific to future clients

We have worked with Elite Pacific on various projects, ranging from elevator modernization in the U.S. District Court in Honolulu and the Hilo Federal Building to space modifications for multiple Federal agencies. All aspects of the company’s project management are outstanding – notably their ability to adjust, re-focus and allocate resources. They are customer focused and provide a superior product on time and within budget. The entire Elite Pacific team is a dream to work with.

We have had the privilege of working with Elite Pacific from the start, managing their insurance and surety programs. Working with the Elite Pacific team over the past 15 years has been a pleasure. We have watched them grow and develop an amazing reputation throughout Hawaii's construction industry. These are great people and I'm honored to work alongside them.
Landan Construction, Inc.
Vincent Fragomene | Vice President
I first worked with Elite Pacific on a project on Maui shortly after the company was founded, and my current company, Landan Construction, has since worked with them on two projects start to finish. Their attitude toward construction is similar to ours. We focus on safety and quality in the field, and we strive to have a positive working relationship with the owner/owner’s representative. Problem solving and teamwork are a big part of how Elite Pacific conducts their business. When there are issues in the field or on a project, they take a proactive approach to develop solutions that benefit all parties. They also take care of their people, and they are conscientious toward their subcontractors. Importantly, they honor their word and the agreements that they make both verbally and in writing, and always do the right thing.
Gary Nishioku, AIA | Capital Program Manager
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Elite Pacific Construction President Mathew Lee and his crew. Elite Pacific was involved with a challenging project that required strict confidentiality and disciplined adherence to procedures. The staff maintained full control of the project, which allowed me, as the owner, to focus on other project aspects. At no time did Elite Pacific lose focus of our goals, budget or reliance on them as the prime player in this endeavor. As the general contractor, they controlled all sub-contractor work with the singular diligence of managing their own staff. The project was completed on time, on budget and met the most stringent requirements of the various agencies involved. I am honored to have had the opportunity of working with them, and they remain a preferential general contractor for Kamehameha Schools.
