Skanska says it has been awarded the construction management assignment for a new, $150 million data center project in the western U.S. for "one of the largest companies in Internet trading." The facility will be approximately 19,000 square meters, or about 204,000 square feet. Construction has begun and is scheduled for completion in May 2010, according to Skanska, which said its focus on energy efficiency was "decisive" in its selection.
"We have focused on developing our expertise within Green Construction," says Mike McNally, President, Skanska USA Building. "Our green solution benefits us, the customer and the environment. We strengthen competitiveness for both parties while at the same time reducing environmental impact."
Skanska is one of the world's leading construction groups with expertise in construction, development of commercial and residential projects and public-private partnerships. Skanska USA is based in Parsippany, New Jersey and has approximately 4,000 employees.
