Skanska, in a joint venture with Megen Construction, signed a contract with the Winton Woods City School District and the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission to manage a multi-building construction project in Cincinnati. The contract is worth $93 million and Skanska will include its 70 percent share of the contract, worth $65 million, in the U.S. order bookings for the fourth quarter of 2017.

The development includes two new replacement schools, a 204,000-square-foot elementary school and a 236,000-square-foot middle and high school. Both projects will seek a minimum of LEED Silver certification. Construction is scheduled to begin in January 2019 and is slated for completion in January 2021.
