Skanska announced that it has signed a contract with the State of Tennessee to renovate and expand the Cordell Hull office building and adjacent facilities. The initial $45 million contract will be included in order bookings for Skanska USA Building in the second quarter of 2016.

The construction project includes exterior renovations to Cordell Hull, a state office building located in downtown Nashville, originally built in the early 1950s. The construction team will also oversee the demolition of the existing central services building and the construction of an underground state capitol building connector.

Construction began in the first quarter of 2016 and is expected to complete in late 2017 when the legislature will move into the updated facility.
