Skanska awarded $180m university development

Skanska has won two contracts with Linnaeus University in the southeastern Swedish town of Kalmar.

One is a $120m deal to construct three buildings with a total area of 43,000 square metres in the eastern part of the campus.

These will house the university library as well as classrooms, offices and laboratories.

The Swedish contractor has also been awarded a second job worth $60m to refurbish and extend three buildings up to six storeys high in the western part of the campus.

These have an area of about 22,000 square metres and will primarily house lecture halls, auditoriums and offices.  

Construction will begin next month. The western part of the campus is expected to be completed by summer 2019 and the eastern part by summer 2020.
