The contract is valued at SEK 1.1 billion (GBP 82.6 M), and will be included in order bookings for the second quarter of 2004. The customer is the Ministry of Defence (MOD). Skanska is currently also refurbishing MOD's main headquarters on Whitehall in London as part of the British PFI (Private Finance Initiative) program for public and private sector cooperation.
