Skanska USA has signed an $89 million construction management contract, in a joint venture with Congleton-Hacker, for renovations and expansions to the University of Kentucky’s Commonwealth Stadium. 

Skanska is leading the joint venture, booking 80% of the contract amount – a total of $71 million – in its fourth quarter bookings for Skanska USA Building.

The project will include a new press and suite tower; upgraded club seating and amenities; and new restrooms and concessions with a wider concourse on each level. The overall image and identity of the stadium will be defined by a new exterior façade and expanded entry plazas.

RossTarrant Architects and HNTB will provide design services for the project.

Work will commence in January 2014 and is expected to be complete by August 2015.
