The University of Nebraska Federal Credit Union project included demolition of the existing building, site improvements, foundation and basement construction and the construction of a two-story, steel-framed building with brick and metal panel veneer skin. Kiewit was also responsible for all interior finishes and site work for the facility, which houses the Credit Union's main retail location.
The Lahaina Gateway is a 144,000-square-foot lifestyle center and one of the newest improvements to the island of Maui. Kiewit constructed the lifestyle center, which is made up of various styles of buildings, ranging from historic, plantation style to a modern style with Stucco finishes.
A Kiewit-led joint venture was selected in December 1997 to construct a key component of the new $2.2-billion water delivery and treatment system for the Las Vegas valley. This $83-million project involved constructing a 12-ft.-dia. intake shaft positioned 240 ft. below Lake Mead's surface, capable of handling 600 million gallons of water per day.
The Specialty Pediatric Center is the third major project Kiewit has built for Children's Hospital in the past 10 years. This $46 million, 135,000-square-foot, five-story addition was built to house more than 30 pediatric-focused clinics, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, allergy, asthma and dental. With the completion of this facility, Children's Hospital is able to meet the healthcare needs of nearly 60,000 children annually.
The Fort Wainwright Barracks is a more than 100,000-square-foot, three-story, 276-person barracks comprised of two-bedroom apartments with full kitchen and dining areas, and a core unit with a lobby, mail room, recycling and vending. The second story houses a recreation area with large south-facing windows that view the Alaska Range.
The Woodbridge Energy Center (WEC) is a 700-megawatt gas-fired power plant located on the site of an abandoned chemical plant. It will generate enough electricity to power more than 600,000 homes while increasing grid reliability. In an effort to stay eco-friendly, as well as cutting edge, the facility will use the most advanced generation technology today and, when complete, WEC will be one of the nation’s cleanest and most efficient generation stations.
The North San Diego County Transit Development Board awarded Kiewit a $3.7 million contract to install two miles of secondary mainline track. The project made it possible for trains to be shifted to and from the newly completed Stuart Mesa maintenance facilities. This project also included the construction of a high speed turnout — the first 90 mph turnout in North America.
The I-95 project involved widening 10 miles of Interstate 95 four-lane interstate highway to six-lanes in Brevard County, Fla. Kiewit's solution provided cost and schedule benefits by widening the road inside and closing up the median with a concrete barrier wall, which increased safety and reduced maintenance costs while mitigating the impact on the wetlands.
The $629 million Tacoma Narrows Bridge is the first long-span suspension bridge to be constructed in the United States since 1964. Completed in July 2007, the 5,413-foot-long bridge includes a high occupancy vehicle traffic lane; a separated bicycle/pedestrian walkway; an 8,000-square-foot toll plaza building; and configurations for a future secondary roadway or transit deck.
