RMTC Vice President Roy Tsutsui, PE, notes that the company's involvement was initially limited to civil design at first, but its responsibility grew gradually to managing the planning and design of the entire Villages of Kapolei project-a massive project that provided the residential components to the "Second Urban Center," with eight residential "villages.
Through it all, Tsutsui, along with fellow engineers, James Yamamoto and Greg Hiyakumoto, seem not to dwell too much on the enormity of the role RMTC played, but on the personal relationships developed over the years.
Said Tsutsui, "It was a very interesting and exciting time that formed many new and lasting friendships."
RMTC PROFILES Way back when, while looking for a possible career, Roy Tsutsui, PE, RMTC Vice President, didn't really know what engineering was all about, but read in the newspaper that there was a shortage of engineers. He thought he would just try it. A Pahoa High School graduate, he left the Big Island to attend the University of Hawai'i and discovered a career that has taken him to remote and fascinating places working with interesting people on a variety of projects while satisfying his passion for the outdoors. "Back then, I enjoyed SCUBA diving, surfing, swimming and other outdoor activities."
While still in school, Tsutsui worked as a student engineer at RMTC. In addition to his duties, he became a certified lab director and technician, performing laboratory testing of wastewater back when RMTC had a lab. RMTC performed a fair amount of oceanography work, such as environmental studies and monitoring. Becoming OSHA-certified for light diving, Tsutsui performed a lot of this work for the firm, and continued to do it after becoming full time. He was sent to remote areas like Kwajalein Atoll, Saipan and Guam and around the Hawaiian Islands.
Fresh after earning his Bachelor's in Civil Engineering and Master's in Civil specializing in Environmental Engineering, Tsutsui continued with RMTC. "I was fortunate to be able to do a lot of wastewater treatment plant and pump station work," he reflected. "One of the benefits of working at RMTC is that there's a large variety of projects. After several years, Tsutsui heard that his friend Leighton Lum was about to earn his Doctorate in Environmental Engineering and knowing what a bright individual he was, called him to work at RMTC. Now Chief Environmental Engineer and Vice President at RMTC, Dr. Lum began to take on more environmental engineering work and freed Tsutsui up to try his hand at other projects.
When the housing market was booming in 1994, Tsutsui got involved in West Loch, then West Loch Phase II. At one time, he was working on three developments- West Loch, Ewa Villages and Kapolei. He says of the work: "There were so many people with different areas of expertise involved, including marketing consultant, planning and engineering professionals, architects, developers, contractors, financial consultants, State, City and Federal agencies, attorneys, etc. He found the work challenging and fascinating.
RMTC asked Tsutsui to manage the Engineering Department in the mid 90s and he was promoted to Vice President. The firm later consolidated some of its departments; Planning, Environmental, Project Management, Construction Management and Marketing were added to his oversight. Today, Tsutsui oversees the Construction Management and Project Management Departments and is involved with marketing and the review of contracts and proposals. He remains active, although says he's "limited" to surfing just once or twice a week, plays basketball in several leagues, golfs and spends time with his two sons, Evin, 18, and Blake, 15. Looking back over his 32 years at RMTC, Tsutsui retains the enthusiasm he first felt about the firm. "It's a really great company that puts employees first," he says.
