This project provided the ability to supply untreated Central Arizona Project (CAP) water from the Union Hills Water Treatment Plant to the Cave Creek Water Reclamation Plant, utilizing approximately 5,000 LF of 24-inch HDPE pipe.
Completed two months ahead of schedule, the $8.4 million design-build Lutheran High School of the Rockies accommodates 300 students, with potential for growth to accommodate up to 800 students. The 63,000-square-foot building includes classrooms, state-of-the-art science labs, administrative offices, an auditorium and a 12,000-square-foot gymnasium with a cushioned, maple sports floor.
A Kiewit-led partnership completed its last phase of a six year contract with Cartier Wind Energy by erecting the last of a total of 354 GE 1.5MW SLE windmills, scattered throughout 4 different wind farms in the Gaspésie region: Baie-des-Sables, Anse-Ã -Valleau, Carleton and Gros-Morne.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) awarded Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP), the design-build contract for the redevelopment of the Wawaitin, Sandy Falls and Lower Sturgeon hydroelectric Generating Stations (GS) on the Upper Mattagami River and the Hound Chute GS on the Montreal River.
Kiewit completed the Amtrak Oakland Maintenance Facility construction in 2004. The $53 million project involved site work, construction of a fuel area and three buildings — a 52,439-square-foot maintenance shop, a service and inspection area, and a train washer facility that has a 300-foot-long rinse slab and load test enclosure.
The $53 million H-J Apron and Utilities project at Miami International Airport was part of the Miami Dade Aviation Department's South Terminal Expansion Program. The project was divided into 12 phases and included construction of an 80,000-square-yard Portland Cement Concrete apron around the proposed Concourse J.
Due to the long history of rockslides and land slippage, Kiewit constructed tunnels to bypass the Devil's Slide portion of Route 1 so motorists can avoid these major slide areas. Using the New Austrian Tunneling Method, which relies on inherent rock strength for support, crews constructed the tunnels through granitic, sandstone and shale formations. The tunnels are approximately 4,100 feet long, 30 feet wide, 22 feet high and 60 feet apart.
Kiewit Southern Co. was awarded the $11 million project to design and construct the Pembroke Pump Station. The team constructed an at-grade precast panel pump station, four 40-cubic-feet-per-second pumps with 30-inch-diameter expansion joints, back-flow gates and butterfly valves that are connected to a 64-inch-diameter steel header pipe.
The Cobra Castor Living Quarters project is a 9,500-square-foot structure built to accommodate 15 workers and includes administrative, dining and rest areas. The three-level structure weighs 700 tons and includes an elevated heli-deck. Kiewit delivered the project under an Engineer, Procure and Construct contract.
