Everything we do is based on the needs of society
Everything we do is based on the needs of society – populations and cities are growing, people's needs and expectations are rising. Our aim is to make people's life better and help cities and companies to grow and prosper. We create workplaces and homes; we create facilities for energy, water, transport and recreation.
We strive to make a better environment for living, working and traveling.

Skanska is building the last part of the New York City subway system, linking Times Square and West 25th Street, making life easier for hundreds of thousands of people everyday.
