This $11.8 million berth allows vehicles to travel from the parking area to the ferry. The 137-metre-long structure involved construction of dolphins, wingwalls, catwalks, foot passenger walkways, upper and lower vehicular loading ramps and aprons, hydraulic lifting towers, and a waterproofing and asphaltic wearing surface on the approach.
After successfully completing the emergency repair contract at Graving Dock #3, General Dynamics awarded Kiewit the $38 million long term repair project. Crews developed an innovative concrete mix that allowed quick turnaround of formwork, enabling them to meet the project's demanding schedule.
This $6.2 million new berthing facility completed ahead of schedule was the first design-build pier completed in the U.S. Navy's history. Work included a temporary mooring, relocation of the Acoustic Testing Facility, and demolition of two timber piers and the fixed boathouse.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Kiewit an $20 million project to remove and rebuild the existing east and west breakwaters as well as dredge the navigational channel of Kikiaola Light Draft Harbor on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. A mining excavator with state-of-the art GPS technology is used to set stone for breakwater and excavate the existing jetty.
This $22.5 million, 1,025-foot-long wharf extension at the National City Marine Terminal radically increased the cargo-handling capacity, permitting simultaneous berthing of two 700-foot-long ships capable of carrying as many as 2,000 vehicles each.
The $56 million Puget Sound Carrier Support Complex project included construction of a 1,680-foot-long by 126-foot-wide carrier pier and a 470-foot-long by 144-foot-wide marginal wharf for escort vessels. Ship service utilities included steam, potable water, sanitary sewer, and shore power electrical service and communications lines.
This $22 million emergency repair contract provided structural stability to Graving Dock #3 after a sheetpile cell catastrophically erupted. Kiewit successfully dewatered the dock and strengthened the cell. The team's impressive performance led to a follow-on contract to provide permanent repairs to the dock.
