Our services

Our people have in-depth expertise in all aspects of construction, management, development, architecture and engineering. They apply cutting-edge construction methods and technologies to insure that our clients' projects, large or small, are built to meet their expectations.

Construction management
We provide world-class construction management services to a broad range of clients across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Because we are committed to client satisfaction, we focus on building strategic partnerships and collaborative solutions that last throughout the construction of your project. Our people are experts in managing everything from small renovations to billion-dollar programs in a variety of sectors, including life sciences, healthcare, education, commercial/corporate office, aviation, government, retail, hospitality and more.

Design-build
In 1989, Skanska became one of the first construction firms to offer the advantages of design-build construction to our clients. Since then, we have been awarded numerous turnkey design-build contracts, including site selection analysis and configuration and some of the largest transportation systems built in the U.S. Skanska’s expertise extends to our private clients' needs for world-class facilities that are delivered on-time and within budget. As a leader of the consortium that constructed JFK’s AirTrain Light Rail System, one of the nation’s first billion dollar design-build-operate-maintain projects, we have a proven track record of successful design-build project delivery.

Pre-construction
The pre-construction phase defines the project's character and is one of the most critical stages in the life of a project. To be an effective component of the overall project delivery plan, the pre-construction process must expand beyond the traditional estimating exercise. Our pre-construction teams collaborate to define the overall construction approach, schedule and purchasing methodology, all of which directly impact cost.

Pharmaceutical validation
Our pharmaceutical group extends traditional construction management services to worldwide pharmaceutical and biotech clients by assisting in the commissioning, qualification and validation of their facilities. Our regulatory and good practice know-how, combined with our risk management experience, helps clients achieve the most cost-effective compliance. We excel in project execution and serve as a strategic partner.

Public-private partnerships
As a world leader in privately developed public infrastructure projects, we are now applying our international strengths in public-private partnerships (PPPs) to the U.S. market. We work primarily in the transportation sector by partnering with governments and state authorities to develop sustainable assets that deliver long-term benefits to the communities they serve, and provide vital yet unfunded infrastructure to move people and drive commerce.

Self-performance
Our self-performance capabilities position us to deliver complex, quality projects on time and within budget. Extensive knowledge of local labor forces and our clients’ policies and procedures gives us the ability to control varying aspects of the project, including areas that are sub-contracted. Our hands-on, proven management processes and experienced superintendents have led to the successful completion of numerous high-profile projects nationwide.
