The North San Diego County Transit Development Board awarded Kiewit a $3.7 million contract to install two miles of secondary mainline track. The project made it possible for trains to be shifted to and from the newly completed Stuart Mesa maintenance facilities. This project also included the construction of a high speed turnout — the first 90 mph turnout in North America.
The passenger tunnel at Dulles International Airport allows travelers to move more efficiently through the fast-growing airport. Kiewit excavated the tunnel under a live taxiway using New Austrian Tunneling Method. The completed tunnel is lined with PVC waterproofing and reinforced cast-in-place concrete and is equipped with escalators and moving walkways.
The University of Nebraska Federal Credit Union project included demolition of the existing building, site improvements, foundation and basement construction and the construction of a two-story, steel-framed building with brick and metal panel veneer skin. Kiewit was also responsible for all interior finishes and site work for the facility, which houses the Credit Union's main retail location.
The ACI Worldwide office building is a three-story facility enclosing 165,625 square feet of office, data center, training room, cafeteria and exercise room space. The long-span, steel-framed structure provides column-free open office areas. The building is clad in two-tone precast concrete panels with aluminum windows featuring sun screens at south and west exposures.
Using a 1,270-milimetre-thick ice bridge for access, Kiewit completed the final pier on this $3.2 million, four-span steel girder bridge in September 1993. The 280-metre-long by 11-metre-wide bridge provides a link from a newly constructed pulp mill to vital timber reserves in northern Alberta.
The Homestead Motorsports Complex consists of a 1.5-mile quad oval track, 2.2-mile infield road course track and five infield building structures. The $31 million project was built on a 350-acre site and was completed in time for the inaugural NASCAR race in November 1995.
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.
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.
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.
