Company Overview Visit kiewit.com website
Peter Kiewit Sons company, or "PK," is a construction company that works with commercial and public projects in the United States. The major building areas include roadways, dams, bridges, power plants, railways and water systems.
PK was founded when Peter Kiewit moved from Nebraska to Omaha and opened a general contracting business. PK's website states: "Fifty years ago in the small-but-growing city of Omaha, NEBRASKA — home to an 8 year old Peter Kiewit & Company — we built our first railroad grade crossing using steel beams instead of timbers." This shows that PK has been around for 50 years as well as shows their early history into the construction field.
Currently, PK is responsible for multiple large scale projects such as the new interchange over I-80 in Nebraska and the aircraft carrier pier at Bremerton, WA.
