Skanska has signed a contract with Inspira Health Network to build a new hospital building in New Jersey, USA. The contract is worth USD 200M, about SEK 1.7 billion, which will be included in the order bookings for Skanska USA Building in the third quarter 2016.
Skanska will build a 5-story, about 41,000 square-meter, hospital with 204 beds. The main tower consists of operating rooms, an emergency department, imaging suites, as well as administrative, dining and support services. The project also includes constructing a new central utility plant, which will provide electrical power, heating/hot water and chilled water.
The new Inspira Health Network Medical Center will be built under the Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) approach, which brings together the client, designer and the builder to align stakeholders and streamline the execution of the project.
Construction will begin in the first quarter of 2017 and is scheduled to be complete by December 2019.
