Bridges, roads, hospitals, homes and schools are some examples of what we build, renovate and maintain in our construction services.

What we do

Skanska’s construction business stream builds and renovates buildings, industrial facilities, infrastructure and residences. It also executes service-related assignments, in areas such as construction services and facility operations and maintenance.

How we do it

In keeping with Skanska’s business model, contracting assignments are executed for Skanska’s Project Development streams. This collaboration generates large construction assignments, as well as synergies for the Group.

Project and synergy opportunities are also generated thanks to the financial expertise and resources within the Group. A combination of financial strength and global expertise in Construction and Project Development enables Skanska to take on large, complicated projects for international customers with high expectations for quality and execution. In the very largest projects that require high-level performance guarantees, few competitors can measure up to Skanska in terms of skills and strength.

With a strong risk-assessment focus during the tender stage, Skanska concentrates on securing the right projects, for which there is a balance between risk levels and expected margins.

Skanska's ambition is to increase its share of contracts, in which customers value service, quality and reliability – in addition to price – when evaluating tenders. Skanska's clear focus on sustainable development – including Safety, Ethics, Green, Community Investment, and Diversity and Inclusion – is also a factor that strengthens Skanska's offering to customers.

Where we do it

We are active in a number of selected home markets in the Nordic Region (Sweden, Norway, Finland), Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, United Kingdom) and in USA. We target clients in both the private and public sector. 

Market shares

The market share in Sweden is significantly higher than the rest of Skanska's markets. Despite this Skanska is one of the leading companies in the USA and the UK markets. The low market share in these countries is due to higher market fragmentation and competition.
