On Jan. 18, the Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services, the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District and the Fairfax Tree Commission honored Skanska USA’s Washington, D.C., office with the 2012 Land Conservation Award for Small Commercial Project in a ceremony held at the Fairfax County Government Center. The awards honor developers, designers, site superintendents and contractors whose projects best demonstrate excellence in erosion and sediment control design and implementation; or a commitment to tree preservation and replacement in Fairfax County. Skanska was recognized for its work and the measures it took to prevent excessive erosion and environmental damage during the construction of Phase 1 of the INOVA Healthplex in Lorton.
Skanska worked with Fairfax County and Inova Health System to ensure the worksite met all of the standards to reduce erosion as well as provided training to the local sectors contributing to the construction of Healthplex to continue the environmental safety and preservation of the area.
