The Specialty Pediatric Center is the third major project Kiewit has built for Children's Hospital in the past 10 years. This $46 million, 135,000-square-foot, five-story addition was built to house more than 30 pediatric-focused clinics, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, allergy, asthma and dental. With the completion of this facility, Children's Hospital is able to meet the healthcare needs of nearly 60,000 children annually.
This $550 million, 7-mile highway project included the challenges of balancing an aggressive job schedule with exceeding the tough erosion and sediment control standards of Maryland throughout several stream valleys and a 2-mile-long environmental special protection area.
Kiewit Pacific Co. was awarded an $18 million contract to rehabilitate 12 rectangular primary sedimentation tanks. Crews will replace grit slurry piping and grit overflow piping in grit handling areas as well as constructing related structural, mechanical and electrical work.
A Kiewit-led joint venture completed the civil, mechanical and electrical design and construction of this $28.4 million 50-megawatt (MW) powerhouse. Throughout construction, the team emphasized the need to work toward a common goal by holding partnering sessions with project participants.
The Creighton University Brandeis Dining Hall Renovation was a design-assist, fast-track project completed in 89 calendar days while the building was occupied. The project renovated an existing cafeteria-style dining hall in to a modern-day food court with individual food-type stations. In addition, the project provided air conditioning to the main kitchen, upgraded the building’s electrical system and relocated the public restrooms.
A Kiewit-led joint venture was selected in December 1997 to construct a key component of the new $2.2-billion water delivery and treatment system for the Las Vegas valley. This $83-million project involved constructing a 12-ft.-dia. intake shaft positioned 240 ft. below Lake Mead's surface, capable of handling 600 million gallons of water per day.
