- Jan 16, 2018
Skanska is one of the leading development and construction companies in Scandinavia, with operations in building construction and civil engineering in Sweden, Norway and Finland. The firm, which specializes in residential and commercial property projects in select home markets, has signed a contract with Blekinge County Council to construct a new building at Blekinge Hospital in Karlskrona, Sweden.
The contract is worth $41 million, and it will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the first quarter of 2018. Skanska’s project comprises the construction of a seven-story, high-rise building of more than 129,000 square feet, primarily intended for medical and laboratory activities. The commercial development stream is also active in Denmark.
With more than 15,000 employees in its Nordic operations during 2016, the company also offers services in public-private partnerships. Construction work will begin in February 2018. The project is expected to be completed in February 2020.
In a recent deal, Skanska sold a nursing home under construction in Gothenburg, Sweden for $29 million to Northern Horizon.
