Construction and engineering firm plans 200 new hires in first phase
DENVER – Thursday, February 7 – Kiewit, one of the largest construction and engineering companies in North America, has chosen Lone Tree, Colorado as the site for their new regional office.
Located adjacent to The Sky Ridge Light Rail Station in Douglas County, the new Kiewit campus will house 1,100 employees including approximately 200 planned new hires over the next year.
The regional headquarters provides Kiewit with increased access to the nation’s second most educated workforce. Colorado’s abundance of engineering talent and depth of higher education programs producing specialized talent was a major consideration for Kiewit’s Colorado expansion.
“We’re pleased to see Kiewit continue bringing more high-quality engineering jobs to Colorado which supports the State’s focus on growing STEM talent and maintaining our deep talent pool.” said OEDIT Deputy Director Michelle Hadwiger. “As a company that solves infrastructure problems, Kiewit’s selection of a site served by public transportation speaks to their conscientious philosophy and their consideration for their future community.”
In addition to housing new talent, the first phase of the new campus also provides collaboration and integration opportunities between Kiewit’s engineering and construction services.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kiewit to the City of Lone Tree and into the RidgeGate master planned development at Sky Ridge Station,” said Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet. “This project is a great new investment in our business community, and validates our investment in light rail, infrastructure and transit oriented development.”
The project is the culmination of a collaborative effort by Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT), the City of Lone Tree and Douglas County.
