    Abstract

    Hawaii has its share of water infiltration problems and remedial repair solutions that have also resulted in significant failures attributed to improper design and construction of exterior building walls. Hawaii also has its share of design and construction lawsuits and apportioned culpability. It is well known that this can be a very expensive way to learn, as it affects profitability. It has become increasingly apparent that in many instances the building codes and standards are minimal at best.
