When you think of Kiewit Mining, you might think of our coal mining operations, which is how we got our start in mining. However, a lot has changed since our first mining work nearly 70 years ago. Our work for the mining industry – like our company – has evolved to include a broad range of capabilities. In fact, Kiewit is in the unique position to combine our extensive experience and expertise in mining, infrastructure and industrial work to meet the needs of any size mining project.
In every aspect of the mining market, Kiewit sets the standard for quality and superior performance. Our capabilities span every aspect of the mining industry, including mine planning and engineering, infrastructure and earthworks, mechanical and electrical work in mills and process facilities, contract mining, tunneling, and tailings and reclamation projects.
By combining its extensive mining, infrastructure and industrial capabilities, Kiewit has the experience to work on any phase of any type of mining project. Kiewit’s capabilities in the mining sector are extensive, including:
- Mine planning and site preparation
- Constructing mine infrastructure such as rail, roads, transmission lines
- Constructing processing facilities

Early Contractor Involvement
Kiewit provides maximum value to a project when it lends its construction focus to the entire project life cycle, including the concept, feasibility and project execution phases. Early involvement allows Kiewit to add value by enhancing the way projects are planned, designed and built. Working with clients early in the development cycle allows us to understand client needs and expectations and offer valuable solutions to strategic issues.
Kiewit’s involvement in a project increases the success rate due to:
- Collaboration with the client and partners
- A focus on construction
- Delivering an integrated schedule and execution plan
