Skanska awarded $12 million in contracts for VCU renovations
- September 30, 2011
Skanska USA has been awarded two contracts totaling $12 million to begin renovations at two of Virginia Commonwealth University’s medical facilities.
New York-based Skanska will begin work on the Sanger Hall Pauley Heart Center and the Massey Cancer Center support laboratory later this month.
The renovations for both projects will be done within the guidelines for LEED silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Improvements will include upgrading air quality and mechanical and electrical systems and modernizing laboratory and office space.
Funded by a construction grant from the National Institute of Health, the Pauley Center’s renovations should be complete by August 2012. The center originally opened more than four decades ago. The Massey Center was built in 1978. No timeline was given for its completion date.
“These projects will benefit not only the faculty, but also the surrounding community by providing care to heart patients and furthering cancer treatment and research in the area,” Steve Stouthamer, executive vice president and general manager for the Skanska Carolinas and Virginia office, said in a statement.
