TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, has been performing maintenance and capital projects at the Belridge Producing Complex since 2001. Scopes of work include civil, concrete, electrical, structural, piping, electrical and instrumentation, and equipment setting.
Kiewit demolished the existing garage and built a new precast, fully-enclosed, seven-level, 251-stall garage. The new garage includes entry from Farnam Street, 36th street and Harney Street, and is mechanically ventilated and fully sprinkled. The existing loading dock and maintenance garage were re-used and incorporated into the design.
The Hubbard Gorilla Valley Complex is a world-class, state-of-the-art primate breeding and exhibit facility completed in April 2004. The existing facility, built in 1966, was too small to meet the needs of animals and curators. The new facility enhances the zoo's reputation in gorilla conservation by expanding the gorilla population and providing areas for reproductive research and health programs.
Phase I of the Global Operations Center Renovation done under subcontract with Lockheed Martin, was an $8 million design-assist renovation of a 14,000-square-foot facility located two stories beneath the surface. Phase I included upgrades to existing finishes, electrical systems and fire suppression systems, while maintaining full operational capabilities.
Due to satisfaction with the initial contract, USSTRATCOM initiated a significant change to the scope of work and awarded Phase II. The follow-on work, in addition to two other owner-initiated scope changes, was valued at nearly $4 million.
Kiewit completed Calgary's first design-build transportation project on schedule in August 2003. The $59 million widening, interchange and corridor upgrade was finished without a recordable accident. An extensive partnering effort with key stakeholders provided crews ample room to work without causing major traffic delays.
A Kiewit-led joint venture completed three contracts from January 2000 to March 2003 to construct portions of this diamond mine south of the Arctic Circle. A major feature of the project was the 3.9-kilometre water retention dike that encircles the diamond deposits — the first dike of its kind constructed in Canada.
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.
Part of restoring the Everglades to an ecologically balanced condition by reducing levels of phosphorous in the water created from farmland storm water run-off, the $2.3 million project included installing a new intake and pump station in Palm Beach County, Fla. Due to the remote location in the Everglades, Gilbert Southern Corp. maintained an on-site office throughout construction.
