Portland International Airport to be expanded
Skanska has signed a contract with The Port of Portland for the expansion and renovation of Portland International Airport in Portland, Oregon, USA. The contract is worth USD 151 million, about SEK 1,3 billion, which will be included in the US order bookings for the third quarter 2017.
The project entails a 14 000 sq. meter, about 250 meter long two-story expansion of Concourse E, including the addition of six additional gates. The scope also includes airside sitework, modifications to baggage handling systems and various renovations within the existing terminal.
