Don Painter-Honolulu Office

Brierley Associates celebrates our Aloha State expansion with the welcoming of Don Painter Senior Tunnel Construction Professional and the opening of our newest office located at:

1003 Bishop Street
Suite 2700
Honolulu, HI 96813

After successfully serving as the Project Manager for Southland Mole JV during construction of the Kaneohe Kailua Sewer Tunnel (KKST), an approximately 3-mile-long gravity sewer tunnel from the Kaneohe WWPTF to the Kailua Regional WWTP, Don Painter has rejoined Brierley Associates. Don will be based in Honolulu to serve our island clients and grow our existing infrastructure practice in the Aloha State.

Don has over 43 years’ experience including almost 20 years working with Brierley Associates on various projects, including as Senior Tunnel Consultant from 2005-2008. In addition to his recent assignment at KKST for the City and County of Honolulu, Don previously served as General Tunnel Superintendent for the H3/Haiku Tunnels on Oahu.
Don’s extensive experience with conventional and tunnel boring machine (TBM) tunnel construction for wastewater, water and transportation projects utilizing open (main beam) shielded TBMs as well as single pass and two-pass tunnel lining systems brings to Brierley a unique constructability knowledgebase.

AJ McGinn, President and CEO of Brierley Associates remarked “As a contractor building nearly 20 tunnels amounting over 100 miles, Don is a well-known entity in the tunneling industry and we welcome him to the Brierley family.”

With our full-time presence in Hawaii, Brierley Associates welcomes the opportunity to “Create Space Underground” with our existing and new Pacific customers.
