The Woodhouse auto dealership project consisted of building a new 6,000-square-foot building. The individual project components included constructing 2,786 square feet of new showroom space, adding a 1,250-square-foot new parts receiving area and adding a 1,680-square-foot new Porsche addition.
The Specialty Pediatric Center is the third major project Kiewit has built for Children's Hospital in the past 10 years. This $46 million, 135,000-square-foot, five-story addition was built to house more than 30 pediatric-focused clinics, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, allergy, asthma and dental. With the completion of this facility, Children's Hospital is able to meet the healthcare needs of nearly 60,000 children annually.
This active P3 project is comprised of a new two-lane immersed tube tunnel under the Elizabeth River adjacent to the existing Midtown Tunnel and interchanges on both the Norfolk and Portsmouth sides; maintenance and safety improvements to the existing Midtown Tunnel; maintenance and safety improvements to the two existing Downtown Tunnels; and an extension of the MLK Expressway from London Boulevard to Interstate 264 (I-264).
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.
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.
At $192 million, and located on 80 acres, Prairie Waters is the largest project ever undertaken by Western Summit without a joint venture partner. When finished, this state-of-the-art water purification facility will increase water supply by 20 percent, or about 3.3 billion gallons per year.
T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was given the challenge of totally replacing or relocating the packaging system and empty-can conveying system at this facility without interrupting around-the-clock production. In addition to the rigors of working in an operating plant, the construction team was required to maintain an exemplary level of safety and sanitation.
Kiewit completed the Amtrak Oakland Maintenance Facility construction in 2004. The $53 million project involved site work, construction of a fuel area and three buildings — a 52,439-square-foot maintenance shop, a service and inspection area, and a train washer facility that has a 300-foot-long rinse slab and load test enclosure.
Using an A+B contract, the Oregon Department of Transportation selected Kiewit to reconstruct the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 217. This $38 million project relieved traffic congestion as exiting northbound I-5 traffic attempted to merge with the heavily traveled Highway 217, which provided the only freeway access into western Portland. The reconstruction work involved merging northbound I-5 with westbound Highway 217 via a fly-over ramp.
This $70 million project called for construction of the San Vicente Pump Station with three sets of 7,000 hp pumps and motors, surge control facility, and pipelines connecting the San Vicente Pump Station, San Vicente Pipeline, Moreno Lakeside Pipeline, and the San Vicente Interconnect Pipeline. This project was part of the San Diego County Water Authority's Emergency Storage Project and received the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Outstanding Water, Wastewater & Reuse Project award in 2010.
