We provide world-class construction management services to a broad range of clients across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. 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.
Taking from our leading commercial development experience in Europe, we have established a model in the U.S. to purchase, plan, develop, manage, lease and divest sustainable office, institutional and governmental projects in primarily four select U.S. markets – Boston, Houston, Seattle and Washington, D.C. The unit’s international network of property development professionals, backed by Skanska’s solid financial standing, provides the resources to satisfy customers in each market.
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.
Skanska Financial Services (SFS) is a support unit that coordinates Skanska’s relationships with financial markets and institutions. With this, SFS manages the company’s debt, ensures that there’s adequate funding and coordinates and carries out operative financial activities. In addition, SFS manages risks that stem from Skanska’s operations, including risks associated with interest rates, foreign exchange, credit and counterparty relationships, funding and liquidity. On projects, SFS provides or procures contract guarantees, insurance and financial solutions.
Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
<1% of projects in the U.S. use this method
- Owner, architect and contractor enter into a contractual agreement outlining how they will collaborate during design and construction. They become a single entity made up of three separate parts – owner, designer, and contractor.
- This method allows for the project to be collectively shared and managed among the owner, architect, and contractor – so risk and success of the project is also shared.
- The selection process puts quality above cost and allows collaboration for maximum creativity in delivering a project.
Program Management Services
Skanska’s program management group - Skanska Integrated Solutions (SIS) - offers an unmatched level of service. Skanska's years of construction and development expertise, which is essential to the management of planning, programming, financial analysis, design, construction, commissioning and closeout of a project, set us apart from the competition. Our SIS team leverages best practices from Skanska projects and offices across the U.S., ensuring consistency in project delivery.
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.
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.
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.
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.
