The J. James Exon Regional FBI Headquarters is a multi-building, secure campus that includes a 97,800-square-foot office building, 49,400-square-foot parking garage and a 14,500-square-foot annex building. The main four-story building achieved LEED® Gold certification and incorporated numerous sustainable design features.
Working at a depth of 80 feet, crews from Kiewit Pacific Co. pumped groundwater from the excavation site at a rate of 14 million gallons per day to construct New Natomas and South River Pumping Stations. The scope of work at each site involves excavation support, dewatering, constructing new below-grade and at-grade concrete structures and installing mechanical equipment.
Tenaska’s new 96,144-square-feet, Class A corporate headquarters sits on slightly more than 5 acres. The building incorporates sustainable features and practices, including a green design that uses natural light. Amenities include open work and collaboration spaces, a café with catering services for meetings, a fitness area, limited number of private offices, a 20,000 square-foot open state-of-the art trading floor, 5 level MEP Penthouse, electric car charging stalls, 305 stall paved parking lot and an outdoor patio with access to walking trails and adjacent green space.
Beartooth Highway serves as a vital link to the western route of Yellowstone Park. A rain-on-snow event in mid-March 2005 caused the road to be heavily damaged. Under a $15.2 million design-build contract, Kiewit completed reconstruction of 12 miles of the highway in just 16 weeks.
The Bellevue Medical Center is a 265,000-square-foot facility designed and built to offer comprehensive patient services. A new medical office building located next to the main hospital added another 60,000 square feet to the project. It is the first full-service hospital in Bellevue, Neb. and was awarded LEED® Certification.
This project transformed a 96,000-square-foot building which had previously sat empty for two years into a state-of-the-art behavioral healthcare facility. The scope of work included a complete interior demolition and renovation, and all new mechanical, electrical, control, security and network systems. The center features 32 immediate crisis beds for a week or shorter stays and 32 long-term beds for three- to four-week stays for a total of 64 private rooms.
Kiewit completed a $33.5 million contract to repair El Portal Road in Yosemite National Park after several days of heavy, warm rains combined with record flows in the Merced River caused extensive flooding and washed out the road in 19 locations.
Kiewit was awarded the contract to engineer, procure and construct a nominal 300 MW 1x1 combined cycle plant and a nominal 200 MW 2x0 simple cycle plant to replace the existing steam boiler Unit 3, which will be decommissioned after the new units are in service. Equipment includes a GE 7FA.05 CTG, GE A14 STG, Vogt triple pressure HRSG, air-cooled condenser and two GE LMS 100 CTGs. The combined cycle plant will utilize the GE Rapid Response power train capability.
