GILBERT SOUTHERN SECURES CITY OF HOMESTEAD'S MOTORSPORTS COMPLEX

 MIAMI, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- One year to the day after Hurricane Andrew swept through South Florida, the City of Homestead is revving up to begin work on the Homestead Motorsports Complex -- a project which is expected to bring millions of dollars to the area.
 Gilbert Southern Corporation, an employee-owned construction company, which has helped South Dade with the rebuilding process, will be awarded the construction of the City of Homestead's Motorsports Complex.
 Ground breaking for this complex, designed by Bermello, Ajamil and Partners, will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 1993, at 11 a.m. at the 320-acre site, located east of the Florida Turnpike. The project will be completed by the end of 1994.
 Says Gilbert Southern's Area Manager, Kirk Samuelson, "We came to South Florida a year ago and have seen all of the changes this community has gone through. This complex is going to be a great asset for South Dade and we're extremely happy to be a part of it."
 Gilbert Southern, a branch of the 109-year-old Peter Kiewit Sons, Inc. and Kiewit Construction Group, mobilized more than 1,800 employees and 1,170 pieces of equipment when the Army Corp. of Engineers requested the company's help after Andrew.
 "As individuals and as a company, we have made a commitment to South Florida. We're here for the long-term and will continue to play an active role in helping this community," says Fred Zambon, Gilbert Southern's project manager for the Motorsports Complex.
 The Kiewit Construction Group -- the nation's largest employee-owned construction firm -- is the parent company of Gilbert Southern and operates 25 construction districts throughout the U.S. Each district acts as a local contractor performing all disciplines of construction from underground tunneling to high rise construction.
