The Alyeska Resort featuring The Hotel Alyeska provides first-class, year-round accommodations for tourists from around the world. Crews constructed a new 315,000-square-foot, nine-story European-style, 308-room ski resort hotel with two independent pavilions, 15,000 square feet of meeting space, a banquet-style ballroom, and a connecting walkway to the new tram terminal.
At $192 million, and located on 80 acres, Prairie Waters is the largest project ever undertaken by Western Summit without a joint venture partner. When finished, this state-of-the-art water purification facility will increase water supply by 20 percent, or about 3.3 billion gallons per year.
The project involved building a 382,000-square-foot premium pet food manufacturing facility to replace an aging plant. T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was selected as the design-build contractor based on positive experiences from an earlier project.
From 1993 to 2002, crews completed four contracts totaling more than $64 million for the DART Light Rail Starter System and the North Central and North Eastern Extensions. The main scope of work involved constructing the train control, central control and communication systems. Crews also installed and tested an automatic block signal system for more than 44 miles of double track. System elements included automatic highway crossing warnings, train stops, and train-to-wayside communications.
Kiewit Pacific Co. is constructing the existing surge shaft in two phases to install 550 vertical feet steel pipe 96 inches in diameter. The team engineered and performed the water treatment, collection system and road improvements.
Kiewit completed the Amtrak Oakland Maintenance Facility construction in 2004. The $53 million project involved site work, construction of a fuel area and three buildings — a 52,439-square-foot maintenance shop, a service and inspection area, and a train washer facility that has a 300-foot-long rinse slab and load test enclosure.
Kiewit Energy Canada fabricated and set 43 modules, built the central processing facility, constructed well pads, and laid pipelines for Phase 1 this 3,000 bpd facility. Phase 2 was a Kiewit-led EPC project, included adding 22,000 barrel-per-day capacity to Phase 1. By self-performing critical path elements, including the fabrication and setting of 118 modules, Kiewit was able to keep the project on time and on budget.
