Sundt and Kiewit complete Ina Road interchange

Ina Road Interchange

Sundt-Kiewit, a joint venture between Sundt Construction, Inc. and Kiewit Infrastructure West Co., has completed the Ina Road interchange in Marana, Arizona, near Tucson.

The companies broke ground on the project in 2017 to elevate the Ina Road interchange, widen both Interstate 10 and Ina Road and replace the Santa Cruz River bridge.

The standout feature of the improvements is a bridge that will allow traffic to flow over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks to reduce delays and improve safety for daily drivers. Other improvements consist of street improvements including: channel constructions, drainage, retaining walls, lighting and utility relocation.

Chasse Building Team expands in Tucson

new Chasse sign Tucson

Chasse Building Team has officially opened a new, 3,800-square-foot southern Arizona regional headquarters office, located at 5115 N. Oracle Road in Tucson.

The Phoenix-based general contractor initially opened a small office in Tucson in 2014, but thanks to its award-winning Southern Arizona team, the business quickly made a name for itself in retail, office, education, community and multi-family construction.

Recently recognized by the Tucson Metro Chamber with a Copper Cactus Award, Chasse’s work in Pima County includes Tucson Premium Outlets, Gladden Farms Elementary School and Mountain View High School College Career & Life Skills Center.

Chasse Building Team finds niche in multi-family projects


Chasse Building Team has earned a reputation for its award-winning work in retail, office, education, community and multi-family construction since 2007.

Due to the recession, we capitalized on the multi-family niche in earnest in 2011, helping to build Urban Living 2 and Cedar Crossing with Native American Connections.

Since then, our work has focused in three areas: market-rate apartments, active senior living/care facilities, and cause-related multi-family builds. There’s no such thing as a cookie cutter in construction, especially when it comes to working on these projects, and that’s the way we like it.

Chasse Building Team’s community-giving philosophy

American flag

Once known as Madison Street Veterans Association, the MANA (Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force) House is a peer-support organization for homeless and formerly homeless veterans. In 2008, a group of 14 veterans experiencing homelessness got together in Phoenix to help each other out. That work continues at this former government agricultural facility, now a transitional living center for veterans.

The building includes dorm room-style living quarters, a recreation room, computer lab, dining hall with commercial kitchen, a non-denominational Chapel and administrative support space. Residents have access to assistance needed to overcome barriers as they rebuild their lives.
