Skanska Completes Longwood University’s Joan Perry Brock Center

DURHAM, NC — Skanska, a global development and construction firm, announces the successful completion of the Joan Perry Brock Center at Longwood University. The 72,000-square-foot, 3,020-seat arena and convocation center will be home to Longwood’s basketball teams as well as a gathering space for campus academic and cultural events. The exterior design of the arena fits in with the Jeffersonian architecture of the historic corridor of campus, and size-wise feels like a natural neighbor to the buildings on Brock Commons.

In recognition of the continuous partnership in creating spaces on Longwood’s campus, the university named the lobby of the Joan Perry Brock Center in honor of Skanska.

"This achievement marks another milestone in Skanska’s long-standing partnership with Longwood University and reaffirms our commitment to excellence in construction and campus development,” said Mark Balling, Executive Vice President responsible for Skanska’s North Carolina and Virginia building operations. “The naming of the lobby in Skanska’s honor serves as a testament to the trust and confidence placed in our team, and we look forward to future collaborations to bring more innovative projects to light.”

Skanska also built the 84,000-square-foot Upchurch University Center, which serves as a student center at the core of Longwood’s campus, and constructed the university’s 10 new tennis courts, which are home to the university’s tennis teams.

“Our partnership with Skanska has been transformative,” said Longwood University President W. Taylor Reveley IV. “The spaces they have constructed on campus are at the center of the residential academic experience, and are well-loved by students, staff, and visitors.”
