Location: Various Locations, CA, US

Company: Kiewit

Requisition ID: 78549     

Position Overview
As an intern you will be introduced to a variety of office and field activities as well as estimating in order to develop your understanding of construction. You can expect to spend time learning and working on shop drawings, submittals, schedules, take offs, pay requests, contract changes and project documentation. While learning these things you will have the opportunity to build complex projects that make a profound impact on communities.

Our mission is to make a difference and we offer opportunities for you to make one too through our construction operations. Whether we’re boring tunnels through mountains, turning rivers into energy or building bridges that connect communities, we depend on our passionate, skilled, and safety-obsessed construction professionals to get it done right. You bring your big ideas, commitment to top quality, and an unwavering work ethic. In return, we offer huge career and travel opportunities and the satisfaction of building the next big thing from the ground up. There’s a reason Kiewit attracts the best: we offer fast-paced excitement and fulfillment you won’t find anywhere else.

District Overview
Kiewit’s Southern California District is headquartered in Santa Fe Springs, CA, just 45 minutes east of Los Angeles International Airport. We primarily perform heavy civil projects specializing in earth moving, water/waste water, transportation, roadways, and power while developing builders who will lead the company into the future. Our opportunities are concentrated in the Southern California region with some work in Hawaii.

Location
We have projects scattered throughout the Southern California region and some in Hawaii, in large cities and small towns, so our people must be willing to go where the work is.  Job assignment location will be determined closer to your start date.  Although our work is primarily concentrated in the Southern California region, our people must be able to travel and relocate as business requires.
