Skanska has signed a contract with the Southern New Hampshire University’s College of Engineering, Technology and Aeronautics to build a new building on their campus in New Hampshire, USA. The contract is worth USD 44 M, about SEK 360 M, which will be included in the US order bookings for the first quarter of 2018.
