This $503 million design-build project was awarded to Foothill Transit Constructors, a joint venture between Kiewit and Parsons. The project includes final design and construction of 11.5-miles of double light rail main track, 14 new bridges, eight modifications to existing bridges, six stations, three center platforms, three side platforms and a maintenance and operations facility.
In November 2007, Kiewit completed structural improvements to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, located at the mouth of Upper New York Bay. The $68 million project included removing aluminum anchorage access plates at the lower-level roadway and sealing the openings with concrete; installing steel maintenance doors; and installing shielding panels at the underside of the deck and on the main cable strands inside the anchorage walls.
A major component of San Diego’s capital improvements program to meet the water needs of its fast-growing population, this project increases WTP capacity from 140 to 215 MGD and provides a state-of-the-art facility with a 75-year design lifespan.
The city of Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport awarded Kiewit this project. Close coordination with air operations was critical to allow for continuous airline movement at all times. During the 1,030 construction days, project personnel worked more than 220,000 hours without any recordable incidents.
The Lahaina Gateway is a 144,000-square-foot lifestyle center and one of the newest improvements to the island of Maui. Kiewit constructed the lifestyle center, which is made up of various styles of buildings, ranging from historic, plantation style to a modern style with Stucco finishes.
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.
The Caterpillar CLAAS manufacturing facility contains a 165,000-square-foot assembly area and 35,000 square feet of office space. The facility is a pre-fabricated metal building with precast concrete exterior that allows an abundance of natural light into the assembly area through north facing glazing. The roof is constructed of standing seam metal and is configured to allow for no interior roof drains or downspouts. The product display area contains a full height curtain wall system to maximize the views of products at night.
