WCN Editorial Team 7 Apr 2021 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Swedish multinational construction and development company Skanska has signed a contract with Montgomery County to construct a multi-purpose event center (MPEC) in the city of Clarksville, Tennessee, US.

The contract, which is worth about $73m (SEK610m), will be part of the US order bookings to be included in Q1 of 2021.

The Skanska-led MPEC project is for the purpose of building a 23,200 m2 multi-purpose event venue for the Austin Peay State University (APSU).

The University plans to use the MPEC to conduct its sports and entertainment programmes, such as men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, ice hockey matches, musical concerts, along with other civic and entertainment functions.

With construction already underway, the project is expected to be completed in Q4 of 2022.

The MPEC venue will comprise two sheets of ice for hockey, apart from an APSU practice court, supporting locker rooms, APSU locker rooms and meeting rooms.

The main arena will have the capacity to hold more than 5,000 seats, which will include both suites and concession areas.

Recently, Skanska had signed a £135m contract with UK-based property management firm Quadrant Estates for the structural refurbishment of a 11-storey commercial office in London.

Similar to the MPEC project, the structural refurbishment work is also expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022. 

Headquartered in Stockholm, Skanska has become one of the US’ leading construction and project development companies. Its main focus is on civil infrastructure, building construction and developing commercial properties in select US markets.

In 2020, despite the coronavirus pandemic, Skanska USA showed sales to the tune of $7.6bn (SEK66bn).
