The $53 million H-J Apron and Utilities project at Miami International Airport was part of the Miami Dade Aviation Department's South Terminal Expansion Program. The project was divided into 12 phases and included construction of an 80,000-square-yard Portland Cement Concrete apron around the proposed Concourse J.
The iStructure Tempe project involved the construction of a 60,000-square-foot building including a 31,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art data center built to withstand the effects of a natural disaster. The facility infrastructure included multiple UPS systems, redundant generators and a backup water supply system.
Kiewit developed a1.6 MW battery energy storage system (BESS) located in Kauai, Hawaii. Project scope included site design and system interconnection. The Kiewit team worked with the battery and PCS OEMs to streamline integration efforts ensuring adequacy of the overall design and that safety requirements of the local codes were met. Factory Acceptance Testing of the battery was performed at the PCS OEMs facility prior to shipment to site.
The passenger tunnel at Dulles International Airport allows travelers to move more efficiently through the fast-growing airport. Kiewit excavated the tunnel under a live taxiway using New Austrian Tunneling Method. The completed tunnel is lined with PVC waterproofing and reinforced cast-in-place concrete and is equipped with escalators and moving walkways.
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.
As part of the extension of the Montreal metro to Laval, the Agence Métropolitaine de Transport awarded a $35.5 million contract for track and switchgear installation to a Kiewit-led partnership. Crews completed the work in 16 months, two months ahead of schedule.
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.
The $9.5 million rehabilitation project included the complete removal and rehabilitation of seven horizontal, axial flow pumps. For the Pump Stations S7 and S8 project, Kiewit also had to re-machine the propellers and replace bearings, reconfigure the pumps basins, and a telemetry package.
