SKA awarded multiple contracts totaling over one million in potential revenue

GREENSBORO, NC (April 20, 2015) – SKA is thrilled to announce it has recently been awarded contracts for engineering design, investigation, peer review, and repair projects totaling over one million in potential revenue in markets across the state of North Carolina. The wins are in direct response to a targeted marketing strategy and increased market demand for engineering services.

Gateway University Research Park recently engaged SKA to perform third-party building envelope peer review services for Union Square Campus, which recently celebrated its ground breaking on April 7, 2015. The campus is an 85,000-square-foot facility serving a collaborative nursing program between leading institutions – Cone Health, UNC-Greensboro, NC A&T University, and Guilford Technical Community College. Currently in the first phase, construction of Building One is expected to complete the summer of 2016. The first building includes classroom, collaborative learning environments, auditorium, rooftop terrace, and simulation labs.

SKA’s Greensboro headquarters location recently won an open-end agreement for structural engineering with one of the leading higher education institutions in the region – University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This contract is in force for 2015-2016 and covers small renovation and construction projects valued at up to $500,000. This contract extends SKA’s long-term commitment and impact on the UNC Greensboro campus since 1988.
SKA was also recently awarded the design of a new freshman residence hall at Wake Forest University’s Reynolda Campus in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company. The facility is estimated to have 200-220 beds, and SKA is providing structural and building envelope engineering services. This project is the latest award for SKA with WFU since 1987.

SKA’s Charlotte Branch Office was recently awarded a contract with Edwin Bouldin Architect, PA, for structural design services for the Holly Bend House – a historic structure constructed between 1795 and 1800 – which is designated as a historic landmark in Charlotte-Mecklenburg County. The first phase includes performing a preliminary assessment with measured drawings and preservation analysis. SKA has collaborated with Edwin Bouldin Architect, PA, and Mecklenburg County since 1988. Montgomery County recently selected SKA with Hobbs Architects for its Architectural On-Call contract. Potential projects identified include courthouse renovations, Administrative Building renovations, Community Services Building renovations, a new General Services Building, multiple mechanical system upgrades, library, and parking renovations. Services include capital improvement studies and plan development, renovations, additions, new construction, MEP and fire protection engineering, retro commissioning, and architectural and interior design. SKA is providing structural, MEP, and fire protection engineering, construction administration, as well as commissioning services out of the Charlotte and Greensboro offices.

The City of Winston-Salem selected SKA with Ersoy, Brake, Appleyard Architects for renovations to three fire stations, including Stations No. 7, No. 8, and No. 9. Station No. 7 includes adding engine bays and additional living quarters. Station No. 8 includes rebuilding and expanding two engine bays. Station No. 9 includes adding an engine bay and expanding living quarters. SKA has collaborated with Ersoy Brake Appleyard on nearly 90 projects since 1999 and is a long-term partner of the City of Winston-Salem, delivering dozens of projects directly for the City since 1990, including fire stations, parking decks, and other public safety facilities.

SKA’s impact on the built environment in North Carolina, the southeast, and across the country includes recently completed projects, such as: the Greensboro Aquatic Center, Sandpiper Run Condominiums in South Carolina, various projects at the University of Alabama, the new Buncombe County Courts building in Asheville, First Presbyterian Church renovations in Greensboro, WFU Baptist Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department, renovations at the Biltmore Estate, multiple international projects for Tyco Electronics, and renovation and expansion projects for the City of Greensboro Coliseum, among others.
