Completed on time and under budget, the 46-story, granite and glass Tower at First National Center forever changed Omaha's skyline. The project's scope of work included a 633-foot-tall office building; a 300-stall, seven-level attached parking structure; three underground tunnels; and a 10,000-square-foot winter garden.
The UNO Community Arena consists of a 219,249 square foot sports and recreation facility. The arena serves over 7,500 people for hockey events, and 8,000 for basketball and volleyball events.

This design-build project included widening 10 miles of two-lane roadway to a four-lane divided highway; six AASHTO girder wildlife bridges; and new construction or extension of 16 box culverts. The work included 1.7 million cubic yards of excavation; more than 200,000 tons of asphalt paving; 8,500 feet of culvert piping; and constructing a 2,000-foot-long runaway truck escape ramp.
Using an A+B contract, the Oregon Department of Transportation selected Kiewit to reconstruct the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 217.

The reconstruction work involved merging northbound I-5 with westbound Highway 217 via a fly-over ramp.
