Jobs Done Well
Kiewit Engineering Co. was organized in 1981 as an in-house engineering services support company for Kiewit's construction operations. KECo succeeded Home Office Engineering and Estimating, which had previously provided engineering support from the 1940s through the 1970s. KECo carries on the legacy of its predecessor by tackling large, complex and technically challenging projects that have become synonymous with Kiewit's reputation.
Over the past five decades, KECo has provided engineering expertise on the world-record setting Olivenhain Dam in Escondido, California; the award-winning High Desert Power Plant in Victorville, California; Qwest Center Omaha; and Nevada's Lake Mead water intake project. KECo provided geotechnical consultation for the Massachusetts Turnpike's Ft. Point Channel — at the time of construction the deepest and largest soil mixing project in U.S. history. Several high-profile bridges are featured among KECo's recent projects including the Skyway Bridge and the Benicia-Martinez Bridge in California.
