A Kiewit-led joint venture completed three contracts from January 2000 to March 2003 to construct portions of this diamond mine south of the Arctic Circle. A major feature of the project was the 3.9-kilometre water retention dike that encircles the diamond deposits — the first dike of its kind constructed in Canada.
The University of Nebraska Federal Credit Union project included demolition of the existing building, site improvements, foundation and basement construction and the construction of a two-story, steel-framed building with brick and metal panel veneer skin. Kiewit was also responsible for all interior finishes and site work for the facility, which houses the Credit Union's main retail location.
The $56 million Puget Sound Carrier Support Complex project included construction of a 1,680-foot-long by 126-foot-wide carrier pier and a 470-foot-long by 144-foot-wide marginal wharf for escort vessels. Ship service utilities included steam, potable water, sanitary sewer, and shore power electrical service and communications lines.
Kiewit has been working on The Nebraska Medical Center campus for over 60 years building new facilities and renovating existing buildings. The NMC campus contains more than 5 million square feet of space including hospital facilities, specialty medical facilities and academic facilities for nursing and medical students.
This project was the first vertical tower in North America with both germination and kilning capabilities. It is unique because all processes are in one building rather than having them separated into multiple buildings. It is also one of the first round malt house facilities in the country. The facility uses 300 tons of barley each day to produce malt for the brewing industry.
The $11 million project involved installing 7,000 linear feet of pipeline, a two-million-gallon concrete reservoir, a booster pump station, consisting of five vertical turbine pumps, water treatment facilities, a new arsenic treatment system and a well development. To increase the station's water distribution pressure, crews constructed each zone with three 100-horsepower and two 75-horsepower vertical turbine pumps with variable frequency drives, which extend down 37 feet into a header, supplied with water from the bottom of the reservoir.
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.
This project consisted of renovating an existing 26,000 sq. ft., two-story building located in the heart of Omaha at 72nd and Dodge, which included a complete renovation of the interior space, all new mechanical and electrical systems, a new skin, an exterior media screen and a resurfaced parking lot.
