As part of a modernization program at O'Hare International Airport, a Kiewit-led joint venture completed a $62 million project to construct Runway 9L-27R. The project included constructing a full-length parallel taxiway and associated high-speed exit and crossover taxiways between the parallel taxiway and the runway.
The $53 million H-J Apron and Utilities project at Miami International Airport was part of the Miami Dade Aviation Department's South Terminal Expansion Program. The project was divided into 12 phases and included construction of an 80,000-square-yard Portland Cement Concrete apron around the proposed Concourse J.
The city of Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport awarded Kiewit this project. Close coordination with air operations was critical to allow for continuous airline movement at all times. During the 1,030 construction days, project personnel worked more than 220,000 hours without any recordable incidents.
Kiewit completed this $8.9 million project to replace a 34-year-old air traffic control tower one month ahead of schedule. At an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet, crews constructed a new control tower, base building, emergency generator building and fuel containment area.
This $16.7 million design-build project includes bulk fuel storage facility, a 20-person dormitory, and vehicle and range maintenance bays. The 2,800-square-meter complex has its own water, septic, power generation, communications, and fire protection systems.
This $28.4 million project to construct three new buildings at Hickman Air Force Base included a flight simulator facility, squadron operations facility and consolidated maintenance complex. The 14-month project included extensive environmental conservation measures to protect land, water, wildlife and air resources.
The passenger tunnel at Dulles International Airport allows travelers to move more efficiently through the fast-growing airport. Kiewit excavated the tunnel under a live taxiway using New Austrian Tunneling Method. The completed tunnel is lined with PVC waterproofing and reinforced cast-in-place concrete and is equipped with escalators and moving walkways.
Constructed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, these aircraft weather shelters feature drive-through aircraft bays with mechanical/electrical support, tool storage, and administration areas. The 63-foot by 70-foot bays are separated by concrete “blast walls” containing all equipment needed for missile loading, fueling, and normal maintenance operations.
Kiewit, performed aircraft apron and runway repairs at this air station for the U.S. Navy. For the runway repairs, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command recognized Kiewit with an award for achieving significant cost savings by recycling existing materials.
