Skanska is one of the world's leading project development and construction groups, dealing in construction, development of commercial and residential projects and public-private partnerships.

Skanska UK is currently engaged in some high-profile construction projects. These include HMP Grampian and the Crossrail Paddington Station.

Skanska was one of the biggest clients of The Consulting Association (TCA). From 2005 to the closure of TCA in 2009, the company spent £118,000 on checks, the largest sum spent in that period. The second-highest spend was £100,000 by Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd. Over the longer period from 1996/7 to 2009, Skanska and its predecessors spent £216,000 with TCA, second only to the £220,000 spent by McAlpine.
