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.”
The arena officially opened to the entire Longwood and Prince Edward communities with a ribbon cutting in front of the building’s facade.
