The Val Vista Transmission Main Rehabilitation and Replacement project, delivered in seven GMP’s, was the largest project of its kind in the United States., The project was developed to trenchlessly rehabilitate a critical piece of infrastructure that transports 220 MG of drinking water to as much as 60 percent of the population in Phoenix, Arizona. The project involved the rehabilitation of 30,000 feet of 96-inch to 72-inch prestressed concrete cylinder pipe by means of a split-can, steel slip lining.
September 2001 marked the first issue of the Omaha World-Herald's new newspaper format, produced in its state-of-the-art, 320,000-square-foot, five-story Press Center. Kiewit completed the $55 million world-class complex in 26 months, including the installation of three 1,661-ton presses, the largest installation of such presses in North America.
Completed nearly one year ahead of schedule, the $28 million I-20 Lane Replacement project involved replacing 13 miles of east and westbound Interstate 20. Additional work included roadway demolition and shoulder widening while maintaining traffic through this heavily traveled corridor.
The $18-million Citizen and Immigration Services (CIS) Nebraska Service Center is a 144,000-square-foot, two-story office building completed under a design-build contract. CIS is LEED® Silver certified, and features a dual duct air distribution system which supplies fresh air continuously and separately from the conditioned air. The interior electrical system incorporates daylight harvesting along with motion and occupancy sensors to minimize consumption.
As the final contract of a series of four to upgrade the capacity of the existing bridge, Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development selected a Kiewit-led joint venture to complete the $448 million project. The project added an additional lane in each direction to the Huey P. Long Bridge and with 8-foot emergency shoulders.
Kiewit has become a trusted partner with Saint Anthony Central Hospital, one of the largest acute care hospitals in the Denver area. Because of our track record of successfully delivering projects on time and on budget, we have been retained for several projects at the 109-year-old hospital.
Working in a limited space with a five-week outage duration, the Kiewit team engineered, procured, constructed and performed startup of the air quality control system to tie it into Brayton Point’s Unit 3 at New England’s largest fossil fuel-fired power station.
By partnering with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kiewit finished this project four months ahead of schedule. Phase I involved excavating, blasting and preparing the spillway's foundation. Because blasting occurred beside the existing dam and near a heavily-traveled highway, expertise in controlled blasting and seismic monitoring was essential.
This fast-track $25 million project involved design and construction of a bridge to provide access to the Fort McMurray tar sands operations in Northern Alberta. An innovative design allowed the 391-metre, five-span bridge to be completed 14 months sooner than anticipated.
