Cincinnati—The Northwest Local School District has signed a $77 million contract with Skanska and its joint venture partner, Megen Construction, to manage its master facility plan, a multi-building development and renovation project in Cincinnati.

The contract stipulates that the joint venture will supervise the design and construction of three new replacement elementary schools, as well as the renovation of Colerain High School, Northwest High School, White Oak Middle School and Monfort Heights Elementary School. The three new elementary schools are all targeting LEED Silver certification.

SHP Leading Design is the project architect. Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2016 and is expected to be completed by August 2018.

This is the second $70 million-plus project that Skanska and Megen Construction have been awarded recently; in May, the joint venture signed a $70 million contract to renovate Fifth Third Arena at the University of Cincinnati.
