Completed in August 2003, the North Runway project was built in 66 different phases and routed through a series of existing warehouse taxiways to maintain access to active businesses. This $115 million project included constructing an 8,600-foot-long runway, two taxiways, drainage, demolition, utilities, electrical and communications work, and concrete and asphalt paving.
As a result of a value engineering initiative, Kiewit served as construction manager and general contractor for this $19.5 million project. Work on Amtrak's Pacific Northwest Maintenance Facility involved additional measures to keep some 67,000 Seattle Seahawks fans safe while they trekked across the project's location on their way to Seahawks Stadium.
The Alyeska Resort featuring The Hotel Alyeska provides first-class, year-round accommodations for tourists from around the world. Crews constructed a new 315,000-square-foot, nine-story European-style, 308-room ski resort hotel with two independent pavilions, 15,000 square feet of meeting space, a banquet-style ballroom, and a connecting walkway to the new tram terminal.
Lake Mead Constructors was selected to construct this $146 million 150-mgd water treatment plant. The project later expanded to include an additional $31 million 150-mgd phase. During construction, the project team took steps to minimize impacts to the surrounding community by applying several aesthetic enhancements and establishing an on-site concrete batch plant to reduce truck traffic.
KCP&L and Westar Energy selected the team of Kiewit and Sargent & Lundy LLC to engineer, procure and construct the retrofit to the 1500 MW plant. The La Cygne Generating Station Environmental Retrofit Project includes the installation of two Hitachi wet FGD scrubbers and new Hamon fabric filters on Unit 1 and Unit 2; and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, low-NOx burners and over-fire air system on Unit 2 of the facility.
Completed ahead of schedule, this 30-month, $84 million expansion was Canada's first Category III Instrument Landing System runway, capable of landing aircraft in near zero visibility. It provided the foundation for construction of a new international terminal. The 60-metre-wide by 3,000-metre-long concrete third runway and taxiways required more 2 million cubic metres of sand as structural fill.
Kiewit was selected by Public Service Electric & Gas (PSEG) for engineering and procurement services on the Northeast Grid Reliability Project. The project included upgrading existing tranmission lines, converting substation configurations and adding underground circuit to increase capacity while reducing transmission system congestion.
