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.
Commissioned in 2008 and constructed by a Kiewit-led partnership, this liquefied natural gas terminal was the first constructed in Canada. The jetty spans 300 metres offshore and is equipped to receive liquefied natural gas from the largest tankers in the world.
Kiewit Offshore Services performed fabrication, lift and set, and integration of 10,400 ton topsides. Scope also included the offload and marshaling of a 12,500 ton semisubmersible hull. The client involved Kiewit early for constructability review, ensuring a seamless project.
This central gathering plant with an Amine unit produces 17 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) and 1,800-3,000 barrels of condensate per day. The project is currently in operation and sells 12 to 20 tankers of condensate and 17 million cubic feet of natural gas a day. The project consisted of site work, foundations, setting vessels pipe rack and underground piping.
Kiewit completely reconstructed three miles of Lejuene Road and Northwest 21st Street. The $81 million project included the construction of 11 bridges and associated ramps to prevent airport traffic from using Lejuene Road and also gives traffic direct access to SR-836 and SR-112.
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.
Kiewit received the 2018 Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) National Award of Excellence in Water/ Wastewater. The project consisted of facility upgrades at the 240 MGD RM Clayton Water Reclamation Center—the City of Atlanta’s largest. The scope of work primarily consisted of the removal of the replacement of the coarse screening, installation of a new grit removal and dewatering systems and new flow-monitoring equipment. The project also included several upgrades and replacements to existing process equipment including the 4 bar screens, washer compactor and screenings conveyor equipment, 26 electric actuated sluice gates, various underground utilities, electrical and control upgrades and new DCS / Foxboro integration.
The $56 million Base Realignment and Closer Phase III (BRAC III) project for was comprised of six separate projects for the U.S. Navy and involved renovating and constructing 440,000 square feet of base structures. New construction included a tactical support facility housing a training center and flight simulator; helicopter pads; and training and hazardous waste facilities. All work was performed while minimizing impacts to the Navy's existing adjacent operations.
The Kiewit team was awarded the contract to design and install the Ghent Coal Combustion Residuals (CCR) Transport Project. Upon completion, it will condition, dewater and transport CCR from the four coal-fired boilers to a remote landfill storage. The project includes the installation of a pneumatic system for conveying fly ash, including fly ash storage silos, gypsum dewatering facility and bottom ash dewatering facility. The ash handling project incorporates a 1.8-mile overland pipe conveyor for transporting the dewatered CCR to a landfill.
