The 9400 Dodge project included the renovation of core and shell components of a three-story office building and three separate tenant fit outs. Core and shell improvements included the removal and replacement of all existing finishes, restroom upgrades and renovation of the main entryway.
KCP&L and Westar Energy selected the team of Kiewit and Sargent & Lundy LLC to engineer, procure and construct the retrofit to the 1500 MW plant. The La Cygne Generating Station Environmental Retrofit Project includes the installation of two Hitachi wet FGD scrubbers and new Hamon fabric filters on Unit 1 and Unit 2; and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, low-NOx burners and over-fire air system on Unit 2 of the facility.
Using a 1,270-milimetre-thick ice bridge for access, Kiewit completed the final pier on this $3.2 million, four-span steel girder bridge in September 1993. The 280-metre-long by 11-metre-wide bridge provides a link from a newly constructed pulp mill to vital timber reserves in northern Alberta.
With winter temperatures below -20°C, crews faced special challenges on the Voisey's Bay Nickel Mine design-build project. Mobilization of personnel, materials and equipment resources was critical to meeting schedule objectives. Operations were concentrated in four major areas-the mine area, mill site, port site, and permanent airstrip and docking facilities.
Working at a depth of 80 feet, crews from Kiewit Pacific Co. pumped groundwater from the excavation site at a rate of 14 million gallons per day to construct New Natomas and South River Pumping Stations. The scope of work at each site involves excavation support, dewatering, constructing new below-grade and at-grade concrete structures and installing mechanical equipment.
The single largest contract in Caltrans history, the “Skyway Segment” replaced over 1.2 miles of the bridge's eastern span. Composed of precast sections, the new span rests atop some of the longest and largest diameter bridge piles ever driven in the Bay Area. The work, performed by a Kiewit-led joint venture, is a key part of a major seismic retrofit program.
Hailed as a “godsend” by The Wall Street Journal, 91 Express Lanes, the world's first fully automated toll road, is the result of a unique public-private partnership to improve California's transportation infrastructure. Completed in December 1995, the $126 million privately financed toll road project offers motorists four free-flowing lanes along the median of the Riverside (91) Freeway.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, constructed 18 pump stations and associated work for the Keystone Pipeline program. Keystone’s original pipeline system included a total of 39 pump stations delivering up to 590,000 bpd of oil from Canada’s Alberta oil fields and the Bakken formation to refineries across the U.S. Midwest.
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.
This multi-phased $28 million project completely modernized an existing community hospital in Hastings, Neb. The project work included adding a seven-story addition to an existing bed tower and a one-story addition to the surgery wing. Renovated hospital areas included behavioral health, radiology, labor/delivery, intensive care unit, PACU, pre-op, pain management, endoscopy, recovery and various administrative and support areas.
