In the late 1930s, Kiewit expanded to the Rocky Mountain region with the establishment of the Denver District, now called the Central District. The district was created to accommodate projects required by the nation's participation in World War II. Based in Littleton, Colorado, the Central District constructs projects stretching from the Canadian to the Mexican borders and from the Rocky Mountains to the central United States.
We build heavy civil and transportation projects, including highways, airports, mass transit systems, canals, dams and tunnels. With one of the largest equipment fleets in the region, we can mobilize to any location as a full-service construction team, capable of self-performing mass grading, drainage, bridge construction, aggregate production, paving, rail, and utility and telecommunications construction.
We pride ourselves on delivering quality projects on-time or ahead of schedule, and are known for our expertise in aggressively managing and building major construction projects with demanding schedules and complex work components. With more than 500 employees, we are a dedicated group of construction professionals who are driven to achieve our goals. This attitude of success and pride has helped us become a leader in the industry.
The Central District conducts its operations primarily through Kiewit Western Co, Kiewit Infrastructure South Co. and Kiewit New Mexico Co., part of the Kiewit Infrastructure Group and all subsidiaries of Kiewit Corporation.
