The University of Nebraska at Omaha's (UNO) Maverick Village is located on a seven-acre site on UNO’s North Campus. The Village houses 480 students in eight, three-story buildings. Each unit consists of a fully furnished four-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment style layout with a kitchen, living room and exterior balcony. A centrally-located commons building with study spaces and laundry facilities, and exterior amenities including an access controlled parking garage, basketball courts and grilling area, add to Maverick Village’s appeal to students.
Grand Mesa Hall located on the Colorado Mesa University campus is a 288-bed-occupancy, suite-style student residence complex. The completed six- and eight-bedroom suites each have a shared living room, two bathrooms and voice, cable and data capabilities.
The Merle Catherine Chambers Center for the Advancement of Women is a 32,000-square-foot, three-story building, viewed as a signature on the University of Denver campus. It is inspired by Santo Spiritio in Florence and is adorned with a large, round stained glass window set in limestone, detailed with a spiral derived from the mathematical pattern known as the golden mean.
Completed two months ahead of schedule, the $8.4 million design-build Lutheran High School of the Rockies accommodates 300 students, with potential for growth to accommodate up to 800 students. The 63,000-square-foot building includes classrooms, state-of-the-art science labs, administrative offices, an auditorium and a 12,000-square-foot gymnasium with a cushioned, maple sports floor.
Completed by Kiewit under a design-assist contract, the Island Pacific Academy was the first private school built in Kapolei. The $4.7 million, two-story, 28,000-square foot school accommodates pre-kindergarten through sixth grade students and provides a nearby alternative to the private schools in Honolulu.
Kiewit constructed the $7.8 million Hickam Air Force Base Dormitory and the $5.2 million Hickam Hanger Complex for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The dormitory is a three-story, 38,300-square-foot building that houses enlisted military personnel. Construction of the hangar included upgrading the fire alarm and sprinkler systems for Hangars 34 and 35.
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.
The Creighton Prep Heider Center project consisted of adding a 78,000-square-foot sports and recreation facility to the east side of the existing school building. The Heider Center is one of the largest, most comprehensive high school athletic venues in the region. The new facility includes a three-court gymnasium, weight room, technology classrooms and baseball stadium. The addition and renovation was the biggest upgrade to the school since its construction in the 1950s.
The Clayton Educare facility is equipped with classrooms and administrative offices to provide underprivileged children and their parents a place to develop a solid foundation for future learning. Kiewit constructed a 32,000-squre-foot child development center and remodeled an existing 8,700-square-foot historical dormitory, transforming it into a teacher training center.
