Kiewit provided project development services, including: site plan drawings, heat balances, water balances, one line diagrams, and permitting support for a 200 MW simple cycle facility adjacent to a 1x1 450 MW combined cycle facility on the same site. The project aims to satisfy area demand for peaking power and variable load from renewable energy sources.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, has completed six projects at the Commerce City Refinery since 1993 including the construction of a water treatment plant, sour crude low sulfur diesel unit, hydrogen unit addition, and diesel hydrotreater unit conversion.
Kiewit designed the automated water treatment chemical feed and replaced the existing manual chemical feed system with an automated system, including chemical feed tanks, pumps and instrumentation.
The removal and replacement of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport's 10,000-foot-long 8R-26L Runway was completed in 60 days. The project included installation of underdrains, base materials and electrical lighting and repaving the runway with 20-inch-thick Portland cement concrete paving.
By partnering with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kiewit finished this project four months ahead of schedule. Phase I involved excavating, blasting and preparing the spillway's foundation. Because blasting occurred beside the existing dam and near a heavily-traveled highway, expertise in controlled blasting and seismic monitoring was essential.
This $486 million design-build project includes final design and construction of 11.5 miles of double light rail main track, 15 bridges, and a maintenance and operations facility. The project begins in Pasadena in the middle of the Interstate 210 freeway and runs to Citrus College in Azusa, CA.
The Metro Gold Line transports thousands of daily passengers to Los Angeles, Chinatown, Lincoln Heights, Highland Park, South Pasadena and Pasadena. As part of the 13.7-mile extension of the rail line, crews installed the auto tensioned overhead contract system, traction power substations and the transit signal and communications systems.
