Skanska secures $105m contract to build higher education buildings in Texas


Swedish construction company Skanska has secured a contract worth $105m from Tarrant County College District (TCCD) to construct new higher education buildings in Fort Worth, Texas, the US.

Work on this phase of the project involves construction of two new buildings with approximately 20,900m2 of total area.

These buildings will feature common areas, classrooms, labs and offices for counselling and financial support.

Additionally, the work on the project also includes extensive landscaping surrounding the new buildings as well as site works.

Construction work on the project is scheduled to commence in this month, with completion planned in the second quarter of 2023.

The construction company stated that the contract will be included in the US order bookings for the second quarter of this year.

Recently, the company was awarded a $110m contract by FedEx Ground to build a new distribution facility in Maspeth, New York.

The contract involves construction of a new 28,000m2 two-storey distribution facility in Maspeth, Queens along with paving, abatement and demolition of three unoccupied buildings.

The distribution facility will feature administrative office space on the ground level and a precast concrete access ramp for second-level employee parking.

Construction work on the facility is already underway and is scheduled for completion in September 2023.

Skanska has also announced about SEK540m investment in a logistics facility in Helsingborg, Sweden.
The new 44,000m2 facility will accommodate Greenfood's product development, purchasing operations, processing, packaging, production, warehousing, and distribution services.

It is expected to be one of northern Europe's centres for sustainable and healthy food innovation, production, and distribution.
