Needed for safety and traffic improvements, this $17.7 million rail grade separation project involved excavating a massive 6,000-foot-long by 28-foot-deep trench in Solana Beach, Calif. The two-year project included construction of retaining walls, utility relocation, track installation, and erection of new platforms and bridge structures.
This multi-phased $28 million project completely modernized an existing community hospital in Hastings, Neb. The project work included adding a seven-story addition to an existing bed tower and a one-story addition to the surgery wing. Renovated hospital areas included behavioral health, radiology, labor/delivery, intensive care unit, PACU, pre-op, pain management, endoscopy, recovery and various administrative and support areas.
For more than three decades, Kiewit has been constructing projects for the Vancouver Skytrain light rail system. Most recently, crews constructed several portions of guideway and elevated guidway on the Lougheed, Front Street and Grandview segments.
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.
PSE&G selected KHMA, a joint venture comprised of Kiewit Power Constructors, Henkels & McCoy, and Aldridge Electric, to construct the Bergen-Linden Corridor Overhead project. Designed to replace the existing double circuit 138kV transmission system from Bergen to Linden with a double circuit 345kV transmission system, the project will eliminate electric system capacity issues in northern New Jersey and provide better power quality in the region. PJM Interconnection determined the new transmission system was necessary to ensure reliable electric service, eliminate anticipated transmission constraints, and respond to PJM/Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) mandated infrastructure expansion. The KHMA team is responsible for removing the existing transmission lines and lattice structures, clearing, temporary access roads and bridges, erosion and sedimentation controls, foundation installation (drilled piers and vibratory caissons), steel pole erection, hardware and insulator installation, conductor, shield wire stringing, and fiber optic splicing.
Working at a depth of 80 feet, crews from Kiewit Pacific Co. pumped groundwater from the excavation site at a rate of 14 million gallons per day to construct New Natomas and South River Pumping Stations. The scope of work at each site involves excavation support, dewatering, constructing new below-grade and at-grade concrete structures and installing mechanical equipment.
Over a 13-year period, Kiewit has constructed $132 million worth of taxiways, runways and terminals at the DFW Airport. In June 1995, Kiewit completed reconstruction of the $2.2 million Taxiway K project. This taxiway, a major eastside artery, involved reworking the subgrade and demolition and removal of 15,000 square yards of 17-inch-thick concrete taxiway.
Located on the Island of Newfoundland, Vale's Long Harbour Processing Plant is one of the largest in the world to use a new hydrometallurgical process that will refine 50,000 tonnes per year of nickel ore in a more economical and environmentally friendly manner.
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.
