(This is from Skansa USA, which has been hired to build the new Carter Lake and Hillside Elementary Schools at Joint Base Lewis-McChord)
Skanska has signed a $49.7 million contract with the Clover Park School District to build two new elementary schools on the grounds of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, near Lakewood.
Skanska will include the full value of the contract in its third quarter order bookings.
The two elementary schools – Carter Lake and Hillside – will total more than 132,000-SF. They will replace existing elementary schools that will remain operational during construction. The scope of work also includes demolition of the old school buildings and site work such as additional parking and new sports fields.
Work is under way on both schools, which will be completed in time for the 2013-14 school year.
