Skanska to convert storage facility into a school

14 Aug 12 Skanska has signed a contract with the New York City School Construction Authority to convert an existing New York Public Library book storage facility into the new high school.

The contract value for Skanska is USD 88 M (£56.1m). Skanska’s work on the new Beacon High School includes extensive demolition as well as the installation of a sub-slab depressurisation system, classrooms, science labs and music rooms. The project also includes a two-storey addition, which will allow for a gymnasium and auditorium to be built for the school’s about 2,900 students.

Beacon High School will be located in the Hell’s Kitchen neighbourhood of Manhattan. The project is scheduled for completion in May 2015.
