Skanska Completes Parking Garage for Virginia Hospital Center
Skanska USA recently completed the construction of Virginia Hospital Center’s new parking garage in Arlington, VA. The new parking garage includes three levels below grade and six levels above grade to hold approximately 1,700 cars.
Skanska has also started building a six-story, 245,000-square-foot outpatient pavilion which will house physical therapy examination and treatment rooms, radiology and imaging suites, clinics for examinations and six operating rooms. The garage and pavilion will provide direct access for patients from their arrival at the parking garage to treatment areas.
“As Skanska’s largest healthcare project in the region, this garage completion signifies the progress we are making in delivering these much-needed buildings to the community,” said Dale Kopnitsky, general manager and EVP responsible for Skanska’s Washington D.C. building operations.
Skanska used two large cranes during the building process. Each crane had a lifting capacity of approximately 440 tons and had a 360-degree spin capability.
