ConDig (28-Aug-19). Swedish developer and contractor Skanska has been lined up for a $135.5 million deal to build a high school in Burien, Washington.
Under the deal with Highline Public Schools, Skanska will demolish the existing high school and build a 22,000 square-meter replacement facility, which will serve up to 1,500 students.
The project features general and specialty classrooms, a theater and black box drama classroom, career and technical education spaces, science classrooms, multiple gyms and tennis courts.
It also features upgrades to the 13-acre site that will include building courtyards and recreational areas, new student pick-up and drop-off areas, bus loading and unloading, parking for staff, visitors and events and off-site improvements to adjacent city streets.
Skanska said that construction is underway and the project is slated for completion in June 2021.
In June, Skanska landed two contracts in Boston, Massachusetts, worth a total of $112.6 million.
Skanska said it had signed a $101 million contract in June to build a four-lane highway with freeway connectors on State Route 905 in San Diego, California.
In April, Skanska secured a $88 million contract to revamp an industrial manufacturing facility in the Midwest. It also netted a $69 million deal to demolish and replace Lakeridge Junior High School in Oregon.
Skanska inked a $57 million deal to rebuild the headquarters of global manufacturer Jabil Inc in St. Petersburg, Florida.
It followed a $45 million deal to build and renovate schools in Ohio secured by the contractor in March.
