Construction-Focused Engineering

At Kiewit, we always begin with the end in mind.

Constructability is at the heart of all of our engineering — because we know what we’re designing for you will need to be built.

With construction-focused engineering, we create solutions for our clients that seamlessly transition from blueprints to real, completed projects. Taking constructability under consideration at every step ensures our clients have the high quality, cost-effective designs they expect.

As part of one of the largest construction and engineering firms in North America, our engineers understand the crucial role that contractors have in the overall development and delivery of every project — from start to finish. It’s what separates Kiewit engineers and designers from the pack, and provides our clients an advantage that better controls budget, quality and cost throughout a project’s lifecycle.

Less Risk, More Certainty

One of the biggest causes for change orders in the construction phase occurs when design plans don’t mesh with the realities that contractors encounter in the field. Construction-focused engineering is a proactive approach that leads to the simplest, most cost-effective solutions for even the most complex projects, reducing the risks of schedule delays and design-driven cost overruns that adversely affect delivery.

Our construction-focused engineering mindset helps position us as an engineer-procure-construct (EPC) and design-build partner of choice in any market.

Kiewit is consistently ranked in the top 10 of ENR's top 100 design-build firms.
