Skanska Signs Additional Contract to Expand Hospital in Portland, Oregon, for $200M

PORTLAND, OR — Skanska has signed an additional contract with Oregon Health & Science University for its Hospital Expansion Project in Portland, Oregon. The contract amendment is worth $200M, which will be included in the U.S. order bookings for the fourth quarter of 2023.

The additional contract includes the interior build-out of the new hospital expansion. The scope involves framing and sheathing, mechanical electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems completion, in addition to miscellaneous scope for the new hospital expansion building. The approximately 533,000-square-foot, 14-story hospital expansion will be executed within a collaborative project delivery model.

The new tower will be comprised of three levels of parking and six levels of patient floors, including a bone marrow transplant department, surgical oncology, and shelled space for future expansion. The new tower will be connected to the existing hospital by three pedestrian sky bridges.

Construction of the hospital expansion began in 2022 and is expected to open to patients in 2026.
