Skanska, established in 1887, is one of the world’s leading project development and construction groups. The UK operation is one of the country’s top contractors. Working collaboratively with customers, partners and our supply chain, we make a positive difference to society. In the UK, Skanska is famous for building iconic structures like 30 St Mary Axe (the Gherkin), Heron Tower, Barts and The Royal London hospitals and the QEII Bridge. Just as important are our extensive service-based contracts: upgrading London’s gas infrastructure, a wealth of facilities maintenance contracts, long-term street lighting projects, and landscaping for the London 2012 Olympic Park in Stratford.
