Skanska, one of the world’s leading construction and development firms, announced it has signed a $38.8 million contract with its existing client, the Edmonds School District, to build the new Alderwood Middle School in Lynnwood, Wash.

Skanska USA Building will include $38.8 million in its Q3 2015 order bookings. The booking is in addition to approximately $11 million in agreements for services on this project, booked in a previous quarter. The architect of record is Integrus Architecture. Construction is under way on the project, which will be completed in January 2017 utilizing the GC/CM delivery method.

The new school’s design concept, budget, and schedule are based on the District’s recent project at Meadowdale Middle School, which Skanska also constructed. The new Alderwood facility will be approximately 114,000-SF with a two-story main classroom and library building adjacent to a one-story gymnasium and commons area.

Additionally, the project includes site improvements for new sports fields, parking, bus and auto circulation, emergency vehicle access, neighborhood pedestrian connections and significant new storm water management facilities. The adjacent Martha Lake Elementary school facility will remain occupied during the entire construction period.
