Creighton University is the only university in the nation with a soccer-only stadium. In August 2002, the $12 million project was initiated and became part of Creighton University's master plan to expand its campus infrastructure. Early involvement and collaboration among the entire project team resulted in cost and schedule savings. The stadium was completed November 2004 - just in time for the Creighton Bluejays to host the Missouri Valley Conference championship tournament.
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.
The Merle Catherine Chambers Center for the Advancement of Women is a 32,000-square-foot, three-story building, viewed as a signature on the University of Denver campus. It is inspired by Santo Spiritio in Florence and is adorned with a large, round stained glass window set in limestone, detailed with a spiral derived from the mathematical pattern known as the golden mean.
While working in a narrow corridor in downtown Dallas next to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, Kiewit finished this $58.6 million, 7,000-foot light rail project through downtown Dallas in November 1996. The project involved utility relocation; street and sidewalk reconstruction; installation of light-rail track; and construction of passenger stations.
Kiewit was selected by the City of Somerton for the expansion of their Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Prior to the design commencing, Kiewit performed cost modeling and constructability reviews to aid in the determination if a Biological Nutrient Removal Process (BNR) design would be more beneficial than the original concept. Kiewit provided anticipated construction costs and schedules for the conversion of the existing SBRs to a BNR. Kiewit performed the same analysis in developing the cost and schedule for the construction of additional SBRs. These side by side comparisons allowed the selection of the best value expansion approach for the WWTP. The BNR approach was selected and increased the current .8 MGD to 1.8 MGD for an addition of .6 MGD in capacity from the original concept.
Constructed primarily from midnight to 6 a.m. in just 21 months, this $23 million portion of the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Automated People Mover System involved 6,000 feet of elevated guideway, substructures and superstructures at Terminals A and C. This challenging work was performed during ongoing airport operations.
