T.E. Ibberson Company (Ibberson) was awarded the contract for a premium new dog and cat food facility that was a highly confidential project at the time it was conceived and built. The extruded, dry pet food process was designed jointly by Nutro and Ibberson. The facility itself was designed and constructed by Ibberson.
The Terra Nova Integrated Swivel Turnaround Project was a $75 million of contract critical importance to the client, as well as the Newfoundland Offshore Oil Industry. The project involved three months at Quayside repair and an upgrade of some of the key systems on board the Terra Nova FPSO, one of three producing installations located offshore Newfoundland.
Kiewit completely reconstructed three miles of Lejuene Road and Northwest 21st Street. The $81 million project included the construction of 11 bridges and associated ramps to prevent airport traffic from using Lejuene Road and also gives traffic direct access to SR-836 and SR-112.
A Kiewit-led joint venture excavated over 40,000 ft. of an 18- and 25-ft.-dia. tunnel to develop the Exploratory Studies Facility (ESF). The ESF was constructed to determine the suitability of storing high-level nuclear waste. A unique feature of the project was the use of a "mapping gantry" to provide safe access for project geologists and scientists during excavation.
For more than three decades, Kiewit has been constructing projects for the Vancouver Skytrain light rail system. Most recently, crews constructed several portions of guideway and elevated guidway on the Lougheed, Front Street and Grandview segments.
The Interstate 26 Mars Hill project was designated North Carolina's first interstate scenic byway. This 6-mile project involved extending I-26 through the Appalachian Mountains and performing 24 million cubic yards of excavation. At the time of its completion in April 2002, this 64-month project was the largest ever undertaken by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
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.
Working in a limited space with a five-week outage duration, the Kiewit team engineered, procured, constructed and performed startup of the air quality control system to tie it into Brayton Point’s Unit 3 at New England’s largest fossil fuel-fired power station.
In June 1996, a Kiewit joint venture was awarded a $350 million contract for the $571 million, 47,000-seat Safeco Field – home of major league baseball's Seattle Mariners. This 37-month project involved constructing the 11,000-ton retractable roof, more than 1,000 parking spaces, and additional site work.
TriMet awarded the Willamette River Transit Bridge design-build contract to a Kiewit joint venture as a part of the Portland to Milwaukee TriMet Light Rail Program. The scope of work includes constructing a 1,720-foot-long, cast-in-place segmental cable-stayed bridge across the Willamette River. The bridge is designed to carry light rail trains, buses, pedestrians, and cyclists, and accommodate the expanding Portland Streetcar System if added in the future.
