The Union Station Transit Improvement Project is transforming Denver's historic Union Station into a regional multi-modal transportation hub. The 19.5 acre, $374 million project is located in downtown Denver and includes an underground bus terminal (23 FT below grade) containing 22 bus slips; 40,000-square-foot underground passenger concourse; eight-track commuter rail station; and the relocation of the existing light rail station.
Metro Gold Line chose a design-build delivery process and selected a Kiewit-led joint venture to construct this light rail extension. Completed in July 2003, the project runs along an existing rail right-of-way from Los Angeles to Claremont and extends 13.7 miles from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to serve the communities of Los Angeles, Chinatown, Lincoln Heights, Highland Park, South Pasadena and Pasadena.
From 1993 to 2002, crews completed four contracts totaling more than $64 million for the DART Light Rail Starter System and the North Central and North Eastern Extensions. The main scope of work involved constructing the train control, central control and communication systems. Crews also installed and tested an automatic block signal system for more than 44 miles of double track. System elements included automatic highway crossing warnings, train stops, and train-to-wayside communications.
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.
Kiewit and joint venture partner IHI were awarded an EPC contract for the Cove Point LNG Export Project, which involves construction of liquefaction facilities for exporting LNG at the existing Cove Point LNG Terminal on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, MD. Together, the new and existing facilities will provide bi-directional import and export capabilities at Cove Point.
Prior to the construction of their new headquarters complex, TD Ameritrade housed its employees in five locations throughout Omaha. Its new 535,000-square-foot headquarters supports more than 2,000 employees and is one of the largest LEED® Platinum buildings in the nation.
A consortium of TIC – The Industrial Company (TIC) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, engineered, procured and constructed the Petra Nova Carbon Capture Project, the first in the U.S., at NRG’s WA Parish Generating Station. The post-combustion carbon capture system reduces the facilities emissions by 90 percent and removes 5,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide daily. Captured from a 240 MW slipstream of flue gas, the carbon dioxide is compressed and transported to a mature oil field where it is injected to release more oil.
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 $71 million Robert B. Diemer Filtration Plant project was to establish a seismically stable foundation for a new ozone generation facility. Before any production work could begin, a large amount of demolition work needed to be completed, including the existing maintenance building, fueling station, asphalt parking area and duct bank runs.
