Swedish company wins massive New York airport bid

Consortium led by Skanska chosen for $3.6 billion project
A Swedish bid for a massive deal to modernise New York’s LaGuardia Airport has succeeded. A consortium led by construction company Skanska was chosen for the $3.6 billion project – the biggest contract in Skanska’s history.
Calling itself LaGuardia Gateway Partners, the team will demolish the central LaGuardia terminal and then build and maintain a new one, in a deal authorised by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Other members of the consortium are Vantage Airport Group, which manages nine airports around the world, global architecture group HOK, Walsh Construction, Meridiam and Parsons Brinckerhoff. The group also recently won a tender to build the American football Metlife Stadium in New York.
