Current major UK Building projects include Swiss Re, Moor House, Stansted Airport’s Radisson Hotel and Plaza Cinema on Regent Street.

Rob Shed has been appointed commercial director for Skanska Integrated Projects (SIPs), the Skanska business responsible for PFI work, framework agreements and repeat business contracts.

Responsible for all commercial activity, Rob will oversee bidding on all new PFI opportunities for SIPs, together with framework agreements, which currently include those with the Scottish Prison Service and CLASP.
