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 existing Twin Span Bridge over Lake Pontchartrain, La. was heavily damaged by Hurricane Katrina. The powerful storm surge knocked many of the bridge's concrete segments into the lake. As part of a joint venture team, Kiewit crews constructed 1.1-mile-long high-rise portion of the new twin Interstate 10 bridges.
The Aksarben Village Gordmans is a new 3 story mixed use building that was built on Aksarben Village Zone 8. The building is 113,000 square-foot with two levels of office space and one level retail and restaurants. Gordmans currently occupies all of level three and 75% of level two.
Originally constructed in 1956, the Water Pollution Control Plant provides the primary treatment for 36 millions of gallons of wastewater. To improve its wet weather reliability and reduce the need to discharge untreated or under-treated wastewater into the San Francisco Bay, Kiewit Pacific Co. constructed upgrades to the plant.
Working at a depth of 80 feet, crews from Kiewit Pacific Co. pumped groundwater from the excavation site at a rate of 14 million gallons per day to construct New Natomas and South River Pumping Stations. The scope of work at each site involves excavation support, dewatering, constructing new below-grade and at-grade concrete structures and installing mechanical equipment.
The I-225 Rail Line is a $350 million project to design and build 10.5 miles of light rail line in Denver and Aurora, Colorado. The line will connect RTD’s Nine Mile Station, built by Kiewit as part of the T-REX project, with the planned Peoria/Smith Station.
This $70 million project called for construction of the San Vicente Pump Station with three sets of 7,000 hp pumps and motors, surge control facility, and pipelines connecting the San Vicente Pump Station, San Vicente Pipeline, Moreno Lakeside Pipeline, and the San Vicente Interconnect Pipeline. This project was part of the San Diego County Water Authority's Emergency Storage Project and received the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Outstanding Water, Wastewater & Reuse Project award in 2010.
In 1997, a Kiewit-led joint venture began work on UDOT's Interstate 15 reconstruction, a $1.3-billion design-build project. Demolishing, designing and rebuilding a 16-mile stretch of freeway with 142 bridges, the team completed the job months ahead of schedule and in time for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Kiewit Pacific Co. is constructing the existing surge shaft in two phases to install 550 vertical feet steel pipe 96 inches in diameter. The team engineered and performed the water treatment, collection system and road improvements.
The $9.5 million rehabilitation project included the complete removal and rehabilitation of seven horizontal, axial flow pumps. For the Pump Stations S7 and S8 project, Kiewit also had to re-machine the propellers and replace bearings, reconfigure the pumps basins, and a telemetry package.
