Constructed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, these aircraft weather shelters feature drive-through aircraft bays with mechanical/electrical support, tool storage, and administration areas. The 63-foot by 70-foot bays are separated by concrete “blast walls” containing all equipment needed for missile loading, fueling, and normal maintenance operations.
The $56 million Puget Sound Carrier Support Complex project included construction of a 1,680-foot-long by 126-foot-wide carrier pier and a 470-foot-long by 144-foot-wide marginal wharf for escort vessels. Ship service utilities included steam, potable water, sanitary sewer, and shore power electrical service and communications lines.
This $22 million emergency repair contract provided structural stability to Graving Dock #3 after a sheetpile cell catastrophically erupted. Kiewit successfully dewatered the dock and strengthened the cell. The team's impressive performance led to a follow-on contract to provide permanent repairs to the dock.
After successfully completing the emergency repair contract at Graving Dock #3, General Dynamics awarded Kiewit the $38 million long term repair project. Crews developed an innovative concrete mix that allowed quick turnaround of formwork, enabling them to meet the project's demanding schedule.
Kiewit, performed aircraft apron and runway repairs at this air station for the U.S. Navy. For the runway repairs, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command recognized Kiewit with an award for achieving significant cost savings by recycling existing materials.
This $6.2 million new berthing facility completed ahead of schedule was the first design-build pier completed in the U.S. Navy's history. Work included a temporary mooring, relocation of the Acoustic Testing Facility, and demolition of two timber piers and the fixed boathouse.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Kiewit an $20 million project to remove and rebuild the existing east and west breakwaters as well as dredge the navigational channel of Kikiaola Light Draft Harbor on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. A mining excavator with state-of-the art GPS technology is used to set stone for breakwater and excavate the existing jetty.
This $22.5 million, 1,025-foot-long wharf extension at the National City Marine Terminal radically increased the cargo-handling capacity, permitting simultaneous berthing of two 700-foot-long ships capable of carrying as many as 2,000 vehicles each.
