Skanska signed a contract with the New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA) to convert an existing New York Public Library book storage facility into the new Beacon High School in New York. The contract value for Skanska is $88 million.

Skanska’s work includes extensive demolition as well as the installation of a sub-slab depressurization system, classrooms, science labs and music rooms. The project also includes a two-story addition which will allow for a gymnasium and auditorium to be built for the school’s about 2,900 students.

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