With numerous design-build corporate successes including the New Meadowlands Stadium, multiple Mission Critical facilities and the State of California’s Central Utility Plant in Sacramento, in 2009 Mr. Farland was seconded from Skanska USA Building to Skanska Infrastructure Development to oversee the legal affairs for Skanska ID in Alexandria and to bring to commercial close Skanska Infrastructure Development’s first public-private partnership (P3) project in North America, the $2 Billion Midtown Tunnel Project in Norfolk, Va. In December of 2012, Mr. Farland and the Skanska ID Team reached commercial close for Midtown Tunnel and he returned to Skanska USA Building.
Mr. Farland returned to lead the company’s Center of Excellence for Design-Build and Integrated Project Delivery.
