District Overview

Kiewit’s Northern California District is one of Kiewit’s leading infrastructure districts specializing in various types of work in the heavy civil, power, transportation, and water resource markets. Although most of our work is regionally based in Northern California, we also pursue various projects across the west coast. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about infrastructure and committed to the construction industry rather than design.

Location

One of the many things that makes Kiewit’s culture unique is that we go where the work is, which exposes your career to abundant opportunities. We relocate our teams based on the work that is available, combined with the development plans, skill sets and career goals of each team member. This means your Kiewit adventure is custom-designed to meet our shared needs. Kiewit’s Northern California District is headquartered in Fairfield, CA, just 45 minutes from Sacramento International Airport. We have projects scattered throughout the Northern California region, including San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland, and San Jose areas. We also have work across the west coast, in large cities and small towns. Job assignment location will be determined closer to your start date. Although our work is primarily concentrated in the Northern California region, our people must be able to travel and relocate as business requires.
