Built for the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, the 134,000-square-foot Anchorage Sport Fish Hatchery is the largest enclosed sport fish hatchery in North America. The hatchery raises more species of cold water fish in recirculating aquaculture systems than any other sport fish production facility in the U.S. King and and silver salmon, rainbow trout, arctic char, lake trout and arctic grayling are raised in the hatchery and are then stocked into rivers and lakes throughout the south central region of Alaska.
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 provided sitework, precast and cast-in-place concrete services for Cardinals Stadium, home of the NFL's Arizona Cardinals, Super Bowl XLII, the annual Fiesta Bowl and other events. Kiewit also built the 63,500-seat stadium's unique rollout field that can be retracted from the stadium, allowing for rodeos and other events.
The Specialty Pediatric Center is the third major project Kiewit has built for Children's Hospital in the past 10 years. This $46 million, 135,000-square-foot, five-story addition was built to house more than 30 pediatric-focused clinics, including cardiology, oncology, neurology, allergy, asthma and dental. With the completion of this facility, Children's Hospital is able to meet the healthcare needs of nearly 60,000 children annually.
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 Lorikeet Adventure and the Avian Propagation Center was a $6 million project for the Denver Zoo. The Lorikeet Adventure has a 3,500-square-foot open-air walkthrough aviary to see the lorikeets up close and the Avian Propagation Center is one of the largest of its kind in the country to date.
