Two large bridge structures and more than 6 kilometres of roadway were built connecting Calgary Trail and Ellerslie Road. Thorough planning by project personnel minimized the impact to the traveling public and allowed for completion of the project in June 2001.
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.
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.
The Interstate 26 Mars Hill project was designated North Carolina's first interstate scenic byway. This 6-mile project involved extending I-26 through the Appalachian Mountains and performing 24 million cubic yards of excavation. At the time of its completion in April 2002, this 64-month project was the largest ever undertaken by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The GIWW West Closure Complex is a $1 billion hurricane storm surge (flood) protection facility for the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas. This Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) contract included one of the world’s largest interior drainage pump stations and one of the nation’s largest navigable floodgates (225 feet). The pump station has 11 units and is capable of discharging storm water at a rate of 19,140 cubic feet per second.
WSCI’s eleventh project for the City of San Diego, this $24.7 million, two-phase upgrade created a state-of-the-art facility that satisfies federal and state drinking water regulations. The plant provides 34 MGD of potable water to customers in three of the growing region’s major water service areas.
Indianapolis Power and Light Company (IPL) provides electric service to more than 470,000 users in the area and surrounding communities, with Petersburg and Harding Street Plants, the company’s two biggest plants, accounting for a majority of that generation. In order to meet EPA Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) compliance, IPL is retrofitting five units at these sites with new environmental control equipment.
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 was selected by Public Service Electric & Gas (PSEG) for engineering and procurement services on the Northeast Grid Reliability Project. The project included upgrading existing tranmission lines, converting substation configurations and adding underground circuit to increase capacity while reducing transmission system congestion.
