The Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head is being designed to be a culinary training ground, where students will be able to receive an affordable and accessible world-class culinary training from world-class chefs. The advanced program intends to build upon the strong foundation of the Kapi‘olani Community College’s existing two-year culinary degree program. Its students will be able to pursue a baccalaureate degree of Applied Science in Culinary Management, advanced professional certificates, and/or short-term professional/continuing education courses. This advanced training program will develop greatly needed qualified, educated workers to support the Hawai‘i restaurant and hospitality industries, while building on the unique Asia-Pacific cuisine that has come to be world-renowned for its captivating blend of flavors, colors and textures.
The state-of-the-art facility will be constructed at the former Fort Ruger Cannon Club, on the slopes of Diamond Head. The Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Diamond Head consists of a teaching restaurant, multi-functional kitchen laboratories, a competition/demonstration auditorium, classrooms, a student lounge, and faculty/administrative offices. The entire site will be connected through a network of covered walkways, landscaped courtyards, exterior educational features, and open spaces.
PBR HAWAII has been providing planning services for this project since 2004 and specifically provided: planning support during the conceptual design phase; an approved Final Environmental Assessment; and obtained land use approvals through the City and County of Honolulu including a Special Management Area Use Permit, Plan Review Use Permit, and Diamond Head Special Design District Permit.
