Skanska JV to build new surgery and clinic centre in US


Grady Health System (Grady) has awarded a $113m contract to Skanska and H.J. Russell & Company joint venture (JV) to construct a new surgery and clinic centre in Atlanta in the US state of Georgia.

Under the contract, the JV will be responsible for the construction of a new surgery and clinic centre called Center for Advance Surgical Services (CASS).

According to the Skanska, the company has a 75% share in the contract.

The 10-storey, approximately 53,000m² ambulatory surgery and clinic centre is expected to house many outpatient clinics. It will be the site of all of Grady’s outpatient surgeries.

The new centre is expected to expand Grady’s capability to serve patients at the main campus, by providing 25% additional operating room capacity and 45% extra clinical capacity.

Among the technological and environmental components to be built into the centre is a system to allow the harvesting and storing of rainwater from the entire block for reuse.
