Home to the Mesa State Mavericks college football team, Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction, Colo. is the most highly used field on the Western Slope, hosting as many as four football games a weekend. Kiewit also constructed new high hump, long jump and triple jump areas with polyurethane track to complete the facility.
Completed on time and under budget, the 46-story, granite and glass Tower at First National Center forever changed Omaha's skyline. The project's scope of work included a 633-foot-tall office building; a 300-stall, seven-level attached parking structure; three underground tunnels; and a 10,000-square-foot winter garden.
A Kiewit-led joint venture excavated over 40,000 ft. of an 18- and 25-ft.-dia. tunnel to develop the Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF). The ESF was constructed to determine the suitability of storing high-level nuclear waste. A unique feature of the project was the use of a "mapping gantry" to provide safe access for project geologists and scientists during excavation.
With winter temperatures below -20°C, crews faced special challenges on the Voisey's Bay Nickel Mine design-build project. Mobilization of personnel, materials and equipment resources was critical to meeting schedule objectives. Operations were concentrated in four major areas-the mine area, mill site, port site, and permanent airstrip and docking facilities.
This $9.7 million project involved working on the mechanical portion of Suncor's Steepbank Ore Preparation Plant. The seven-month project involved installing breaker drums, pumps, motors, drives and support equipment for the crushing, screening and initial hydroextraction of oil from tar sands ore.
The Borsheims Fine Jewelry and Gifts Addition project consisted of remodeling and expanding corporate office and retail space and the addition of first level retail space, front entry and warehouse.

From 1993 to 2002, crews completed four contracts totaling more than $64 million for the DART Light Rail Starter System and the North Central and North Eastern Extensions. The main scope of work involved constructing the train control, central control and communication systems. Crews also installed and tested an automatic block signal system for more than 44 miles of double track. System elements included automatic highway crossing warnings, train stops, and train-to-wayside communications.
