Ferraro Choi And Associates Ltd., a Honolulu-based architectural firm, is using Antarctica, in effect, as a "test station" for projects in Hawaii.
The firm recently signed a contract for an undisclosed amount with the National Science Foundation to provide architectural and engineering services for two of the most remote laboratory and research centers in the world.
Both centers, Amundsen-Scott South Pole station and McMurdo station, are in Antarctica, the world's largest and coldest continent.
Antarctica could serve as a "test station" for Hawaii projects because of its remote location, according to Joe Ferraro, partner and principal in charge.
