Skanska to build library at Wroclaw University for SEK 385 M

Skanska has been contracted to complete the construction of a new library at Wroclaw University in Poland. The contract amounts to PLN 139.3 M, or SEK 385 M, which is included in order bookings for the fourth quarter. The customer is Wroclaw University.

The project involves a library building covering a total of 46,000 square meters. The two-section building will house reading rooms for about 1,000 students, lecture rooms, bookshop and museum. The library will have space for 4.5 million books.

The library building was originally started by another construction firm, which was forced to abandon the project in 2006. In new procurement bidding, Skanska was awarded the assignment to complete the construction.

Skanska’s work begins in November and is scheduled to be completed in April 2011.

Skanska Poland, one of the largest construction companies in Poland, had sales of SEK 8 billion in 2007. The company has about 6,500 employees. In Poland also Skanska Commercial Development and Skanska Infrastructure Development are active.
