ConDig (14-Oct–20). Swedish developer and contractor Skanska has secured a $91 million contract to upgrade an aluminum processing facility in the Southeast of the US.
Under the design and build deal with the unnamed client, the company will construct a 8,000-square-meter expansion to the facility, in addition to remodelling 1,900 square meters of existing plant space.
The facility will utilize green technology and state-of-the-art equipment to significantly increase capacity and will be one of the most advanced aluminium processing facilities in the world, the company said.
Construction is scheduled to kick off in the second quarter of 2021 and completion is earmarked for 2023.
Last month, Skanska secured a $64 million contract to build a data center in Oregon. It also bagged a $106 million deal last month for the 95 Northbound viaduct replacement in Providence, Rhode Island.
