In another development, Skanska secured a contract worth $189m from the Virginia Department of Forensic Science (DFS) and the Department of General Services for the construction of a new forensic lab in the US.

As part of the project, Skanska will build a four-storey forensic facility of about 89,000m2.

With plans to start in the first quarter of this year, Skanska intends to complete the construction of the project in the fall of 2025.
