The Toyota Elephant Passage Exhibit at the Denver Zoo is the first LEED Platinum certified exhibit in the country. As part of the project scope of work, Kiewit demolished 17 existing buildings and redeveloped approximately 10 acres of Zoo space. The exhibit features six expansive outdoor yards, three animal crossings, and more than 1.1 million gallons of water for the exhibit animals to enjoy. A unique gasification plant, which is designed to convert animal waste into a power source, was built adjacent to the exhibition area.
The Hilton Hotel Expansion and Renovation project included the new construction of a six-story, 150 guest room tower located above the existing parking structure. This expansion accommodates larger groups, special events and provides additional availability for leisure and business guests.
The Hixson-Lied Science Center, built by Kiewit Building Group Inc., is a 150,000-square-foot center intended to be Creighton University's main entrance or "front door" on the north side of campus. The team created and maintained a highly detailed construction schedule with all tasks itemized, which resulted in a faster, more cost-effective construction schedule with virtually no disruption in adjacent spaces.
Fast-track, design-build project with Kiewit Building Group of a 276 person barracks. This 100,000+ SF, three-story building is comprised of two bedroom apartments with a full kitchen and dining area, and a core unit with the lobby, mail room, recycling and vending. The second story houses the generously sized recreation area with large south-facing windows that provide a commanding view of the Alaska Range.
The Cabela's Data Center is a single story, slab on grade, precast structure containing a 13,800 SF Tier III data center with extra tall ceiling, exterior mechanical courtyard, two bay loading dock and 1,300 SF of offce space. The building envelope was designed and built to withstand severe weather events and maintain an ideal interior environment, with no air or water infltration in the data center space.
The iStructure Omaha project involved the construction of an 89,000 SF data center and offce facility on a fast-track schedule. The structural design of the facility integrated two approaches. The lower level was a case-hardened structure of poured-in-place concrete which has the ability to withstand 200 MPH wind shear.
