Skanska USA Civil’s operating unit Skanksa Koch will construct the structure's steel that will frame the hub’s main concourse including portals, arches and rafters that combine to give the building its signature winged appearance. The oculus building will stand at 150 ft upon its completion and will serve approximately 200,000 commuters per day.
