  • The $75 million Phase I project includes a new building to replace the SEC Link and renovations to Scott Engineering Center, beginning on October 2019 with estimated completion in Fall 2022. 
  • Phase II, an estimated $85 million building to enhance engineering education in Nebraska, will feature Kiewit Hall, including a $20 million commitment from Peter Kiewit Sons', Inc. Estimated completion is Fall 2023.
  • Phase III will focus on enhancements to the Peter Kiewit Institute in Omaha (on the University of Nebraska Omaha Scott Campus).


The chairman and chief executive officer of Peter Kiewit Sons’, Inc., joined with the chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Dean of the college Sept. 19 to announce the Omaha corporation’s support of a significant expansion of Nebraska engineering. The company’s $20 million commitment is a substantial contribution to an estimated $85 million engineering facility planned for Lincoln. To be named Kiewit Hall, the building will enhance engineering education in Nebraska and house Lincoln-based construction management programs. Announcement / Video
