Skanska has, as part of a joint venture with Trevcon II, signed a contract with AECOM to perform drilled shaft and bulkhead work for Electric Boat’s new South Yard Assembly Building in Groton, Connecticut, USA. Skanska’s share of the contract is worth $89 million which will be included in the US order bookings for the third quarter of 2019.

The joint venture will install more than 500 drilled shafts to support the new 18,600 square meter South Yard Assembly Building, which will eventually employ 1,400 shipbuilders who will construct submarines for the U.S. Navy. The joint venture will also be responsible for the furnishing, as well as marine work including demolition, dredging, and blasting.

Construction is ongoing and will continue through summer 2020.
