Skanska Celebrates Topping Out Milestone of George Mason University’s Life Sciences and Engineering Building

ROCKVILLE, MD –– Skanska recently reached a milestone by topping out George Mason University’s new Life Sciences and Engineering Building at the school’s Prince William County Science and Technology (SciTech) Campus.

The $83.6 million,132,000-square-foot Life Sciences and Engineering Building will support students enrolled in STEM-H majors, such as kinesiology, materials science, forensic science, bioengineering, and mechanical engineering. The facility will also include specialized instructional labs, classrooms, experiential learning laboratories, and faculty and administrative offices to support growing student and faculty communities on the SciTech Campus.

Leading up to the topping-out ceremony, the construction team has poured more than 6,278 cubic yards of concrete, laid more than 700 tons of rebar, and worked more than 50,000 man hours to date.

“For more than 25 years, George Mason’s SciTech campus has been a transformational presence and a magnet in advancing innovation and driving economic growth in Prince William County,” said Elias Bezabhe, Project Executive at Skanska. “Our team has done an outstanding job to achieve this milestone and Skanska is honored to be part of this exceptional higher education project.”
