Skanska USA has been awarded the construction management assignment for the expansion of the Holly Hall Hospital in Houston. The new five-story, approximately 172,222-square-foot building will house specialized clinics with services such as diagnostics imaging and radiation therapy.

Construction is scheduled to begin in August and slated for completion by July 2012.

Skanska is also building two other expansion projects at Houston’s LBJ Hospital for Harris County Hospital District, the same customer as with Holly Hall. The first phase is contracted for $30 million, with additional phases expected to total $27 million.

Earlier this month, Skanska was awarded its first road assignment in the northwestern United States: construction of the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle. The project is estimated to cost $115 million.

Skanksa USA has four business units: Skanska USA Building, Skanska USA Civil, Skanska Infrastructure Development, and Skanska Commercial Development. The New York-based firm has approximately 7,000 employees.
