The $21 million Maui Marketplace project involved the masonry construction of a 300,000-square-foot retail space on a 20-acre site. Five major retail tenants and a branch bank, added to the contract during construction, occupy the space. The scope of work included placing 2,200 concrete masonry unit blocks a day, totaling more than 200,000. The team's 30 crew members placed the blocks using 600 linear feet of E-Z Scaffold.
The $19 million Biological Research and Diagnostics (BiRD) Facility was built for the University of Alaska - Fairbanks (UAF) Biological and Computational Sciences program. The 40,500-square-foot veterinarian administration space serves as a central animal research and diagnostic facility for small arctic animals, birds and fish. Special attention was given to energy use for this arctic facility by integrating air-to-air heat recovery systems, high-efficiency lighting, occupancy sensors and other energy saving systems while meeting the strict National Institute of Health guidelines for laboratories.
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.
As part of the extension of the Montreal metro to Laval, the Agence Métropolitaine de Transport awarded a $35.5 million contract for track and switchgear installation to a Kiewit-led partnership. Crews completed the work in 16 months, two months ahead of schedule.
Tenaska’s new 96,144-square-feet, Class A corporate headquarters sits on slightly more than 5 acres. The building incorporates sustainable features and practices, including a green design that uses natural light. Amenities include open work and collaboration spaces, a café with catering services for meetings, a fitness area, limited number of private offices, a 20,000 square-foot open state-of-the art trading floor, 5 level MEP Penthouse, electric car charging stalls, 305 stall paved parking lot and an outdoor patio with access to walking trails and adjacent green space.
To accommodate the increasing number of passengers, Kiewit reconstructed Taxiway S, located between Terminals 3 and 4. The new taxiway was open for aircraft in December 2005 upon completion of an aggressive eight-month schedule. Through close cooperation with airport authorities, construction was completed with minimal disruptions to the public and airlines.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, performed mechanical installation of two separate, Linde designed and furnished sulfur recovery units in 2006.
Completed in 2010, Kiewit fabricated 80 modules for the crude expansion project in Port Arthur, Texas. A total of 19 barge shipments were made over an 11-month period. Modules were bolted construction consisting of both pipe racks and process units.
Kiewit completed the engineer, procure, and construct contract for a wet front end for an existing ore processing facility at the Cloudbreak iron ore mine. The improvements allow the mine to process wetter ore with more fines than the facility could previously handle.
