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.
The Antelope Station Grid Switching Expansion Project will allow an existing generating station to switch between the SPP and ERCOT grid systems. Kiewit Engineering and Design is designing the switch to a grid configuration consisting of a single-breaker, double-bus.
Kiewit completed this $8.9 million project to replace a 34-year-old air traffic control tower one month ahead of schedule. At an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet, crews constructed a new control tower, base building, emergency generator building and fuel containment area.
Nearly 2 miles of Interstate 25 and Interstate 40 interchange were reconstructed and expanded under this $237 million contract. As part of the project, 55 bridges were built including eight new precast segmental fly-over bridges, 33 new concrete girder bridges and four structural steel girder bridges. Ten bridges were rehabilitated.
The North San Diego County Transit Development Board awarded Kiewit a $3.7 million contract to install two miles of secondary mainline track. The project made it possible for trains to be shifted to and from the newly completed Stuart Mesa maintenance facilities. This project also included the construction of a high speed turnout — the first 90 mph turnout in North America.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, has completed six projects at the Commerce City Refinery since 1993 including the construction of a water treatment plant, sour crude low sulfur diesel unit, hydrogen unit addition, and diesel hydrotreater unit conversion.
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.
The Nebraska Medical System Cancer Center is housed in a medical office building that was modified to meet the needs of a state-of-the-art cancer treatment center. Kiewit constructed an addition to the building which includes a radiation oncology department with linear accelerator vaults and areas for disease diagnosis, medical examination and infusion therapy.
Cherne, a subsidiary of Kiewit, has been working on major projects at the Wood River Refinery since 1997. Most recently, Cherne oversaw construction and construction management for the CORE Project after successful completion of a new hydrocrakcer and ultra light diesel units at this same refinery location.
In addition to site work, Kiewit Offshore Services Fabricated 32 modules weighing 15,000 tons for the CORE Project.
Kiewit Energy Canada fabricated and set 43 modules, built the central processing facility, constructed well pads, and laid pipelines for Phase 1 this 3,000 bpd facility. Phase 2 was a Kiewit-led EPC project, included adding 22,000 barrel-per-day capacity to Phase 1. By self-performing critical path elements, including the fabrication and setting of 118 modules, Kiewit was able to keep the project on time and on budget.
