  • Year: 2007
  • Contracting activity: United Nations
  • Contract duration: 7 years

In July 2007, the United Nations selected Skanska AB to renovate its headquarters in New York, a 1950s-era facility. The contract had an initial worth of $7 million with an estimated $1.9 billion ceiling.

The refurbishing plan originally started in 1995. However, no work has started due to difficulties with the United Nations system and a lack of support from major countries. Hence, a temporary structure was placed.

Due to the facility’s outdated building codes and building materials, the United Nations Capital Plan had included making the headquarters buildings safer and more energy efficient— primarily modernizing the skyscraper overlooking Manhattan’s East Rivers and surrounding buildings.
