"Just as a rock is not shaken by a strong or sudden gust of wind, neither should we be affected by praise or success."
-Peter Kiewit, 1964
"Just as a rock is not shaken by a strong or sudden gust of wind, neither should we be affected by praise or success. We must not be satisfied with our past accomplishments and we should make every effort to improve and expand our operations — but only in an orderly and beneficial manner…a company cannot stand still for long — either it goes ahead or it slides back."Peter Kiewit, 1964
Excellence. It is the foundation of everything we do. What began in 1884 with two hardworking brothers has grown into a Fortune 500 construction, mining and engineering powerhouse.
Kiewit’s ethical, forward-thinking workforce continues to build upon the company’s reputation of safe, high-quality engineering. Consistently ranked among the top five of the Engineering News-Record Top 400 Contractors, our company is a leader in a variety of market sectors throughout North America and, most recently, Australia.
As an employee-owned company, Kiewit’s assets are managed by the people who know our work best. For us, business is personal. As our own stakeholders, we are invested in every project we take on. We continuously strive to build high-quality work at the lowest cost.
Our philosophy on safety is simple: Nobody Gets Hurt. Knowing that one lapse in judgment can lead to catastrophic events, the safety of the men and women on our job sites and the community that surrounds our projects is always first.
Kiewit never stands still. Just as our founders relentlessly chased their dream, we continue to chase new and exciting opportunities.
