Skanska has won a $204-million contract from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to fabricate and erect approximately 11,000 tons of structural steel for the Santiago Calatrava-designed transit station at the new 800,000-sq-ft World Trade Center Transportation Hub, currently under construction.

Skanska USA Civil's operating unit Skanska Koch will construct the so-called “Oculus” building that will frame the hub's main concourse. The structure includes portals, arches and rafters that combine to give the building its signature winged appearance.

The building will stand 150 ft tall upon its completion and will serve approximately 200,000 Trans-Hudson subway commuters each day.

Steel erection is scheduled to begin in June 2012 with an expected completion date of July 2013.
