Inouye’s and judge’s offices moved for mold The Honolulu office of U.S. Sen. Dan Inouye will be relocated within the Prince Kuhio Federal Building at the end of the month to allow for mold-eradication efforts.
The mold was reported in early August. Mold was also found in the chambers of Magistrate Leslie Kobayashi in the U.S. District Courthouse, according to the federal General Services Administration, which manages both buildings on Halekauwila Street.
Kobayashi and her staff have already been relocated to another office. Mold remediation efforts will start in Inouye’s and Kobayashi’s offices at the end of the month, according to the GSA. Inouye’s office has about 10 employees. The government has not yet completed a report on all the work that will need to be done on the buildings. No employees or visitors complained of mold-related symptoms.
