In 2008, TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, completed installation of a refurbished coker unit that was dismantled by TIC at a California refinery and relocated by Sinclair to Wyoming. TIC installed a total of eight major systems for this particular project: coker unit, two sulfur recovery units, two amine recovery units, sour water stripper, coke handling system, and 180 ft. flare system. TIC also built the entire project footprint—foundations, paving, structural steel, coker derrick structure, and several decks.
Kiewit completed this $8.9 million project to replace a 34-year-old air traffic control tower one month ahead of schedule. At an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet, crews constructed a new control tower, base building, emergency generator building and fuel containment area.
Kiewit has been building facilities for the University of Alaska - Fairbanks (UAF) for more than 40 years. The School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Facility (SFOS) at Lena Point is an $18 million, three-story, 30,000-square-foot educational research facility that provides needed classrooms, laboratories, and faculty and student offices for the university in remote southeast Alaska near Juneau.
The vivaNext - H3 Project is part of York Region Rapid Transit Corporation's plan for the next generation of rapid transit. The project includes the construction of rapidways — dedicated centre bus lanes — and 22 state-of-the-art station platforms. The 6.4-kilometre project will transform the Highway 7 corridor into a visually appealing and pedestrian-friendly environment.
Kiewit completed the engineer, procure, and construct contract for a wet front end for an existing ore processing facility at the Cloudbreak iron ore mine. The improvements allow the mine to process wetter ore with more fines than the facility could previously handle.
A Kiewit-led joint venture completed this project in 42 months. Crews scheduled around three maintenance-of-traffic phases to complete renovations and repairs on the approximately 1-mile long, two-level, 10-lane bridge that spans the East River and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Queens.
A major component of San Diego’s capital improvements program to meet the water needs of its fast-growing population, this project increases WTP capacity from 140 to 215 MGD and provides a state-of-the-art facility with a 75-year design lifespan.
Located on the Island of Newfoundland, Vale's Long Harbour Processing Plant is one of the largest in the world to use a new hydrometallurgical process that will refine 50,000 tonnes per year of nickel ore in a more economical and environmentally friendly manner.
This $13 million project involved construction of two new pump stations, which included all structural, architectural, mechanical, and electrical requirements. At the request of the local community, the project team worked together with the owner to redesign and offer solutions to ultimately satisfy the local concerns regarding the aesthetics, which resulted in a Tuscan style building exterior. This project required extensive coordination with local residents, which included door-to-door contact, meetings, and flyers within the community.
Constructed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, these aircraft weather shelters feature drive-through aircraft bays with mechanical/electrical support, tool storage, and administration areas. The 63-foot by 70-foot bays are separated by concrete “blast walls” containing all equipment needed for missile loading, fueling, and normal maintenance operations.
