The Creighton University Brandeis Dining Hall Renovation was a design-assist, fast-track project completed in 89 calendar days while the building was occupied. The project renovated an existing cafeteria-style dining hall in to a modern-day food court with individual food-type stations. In addition, the project provided air conditioning to the main kitchen, upgraded the building’s electrical system and relocated the public restrooms.
Lake Mead Constructors was selected to construct this $146 million 150-mgd water treatment plant. The project later expanded to include an additional $31 million 150-mgd phase. During construction, the project team took steps to minimize impacts to the surrounding community by applying several aesthetic enhancements and establishing an on-site concrete batch plant to reduce truck traffic.
The region of York located North of Toronto has been experiencing a rapid growth. VivaNext has been developed to facilitate community transit. The work consists of widening 4.2 kilometres along Highway 7 between Highway 400 and the GO Bradford/Barrie Railway line in the city of Vaughan.
Phase I of the Global Operations Center Renovation done under subcontract with Lockheed Martin, was an $8 million design-assist renovation of a 14,000-square-foot facility located two stories beneath the surface. Phase I included upgrades to existing finishes, electrical systems and fire suppression systems, while maintaining full operational capabilities.
Due to satisfaction with the initial contract, USSTRATCOM initiated a significant change to the scope of work and awarded Phase II. The follow-on work, in addition to two other owner-initiated scope changes, was valued at nearly $4 million.
The Union Station Transit Improvement Project is transforming Denver's historic Union Station into a regional multi-modal transportation hub. The 19.5 acre, $374 million project is located in downtown Denver and includes an underground bus terminal (23 FT below grade) containing 22 bus slips; 40,000-square-foot underground passenger concourse; eight-track commuter rail station; and the relocation of the existing light rail station.
Needed for safety and traffic improvements, this $17.7 million rail grade separation project involved excavating a massive 6,000-foot-long by 28-foot-deep trench in Solana Beach, Calif.

Over a 13-year period, Kiewit has constructed $132 million worth of taxiways, runways and terminals at the DFW Airport. In June 1995, Kiewit completed reconstruction of the $2.2 million Taxiway K project. This taxiway, a major eastside artery, involved reworking the subgrade and demolition and removal of 15,000 square yards of 17-inch-thick concrete taxiway.
As the primary water source for the Contra Costa Water District, the Los Vaqueros Dam measures 1,000 feet across and 192 feet high. During construction, project personnel suggested a value engineering concept that considered the creation of rip rap from on-site oversized rock from the excavation. This resulted in more than 50,000 cubic yards of rip rap generated on-site.
