Cogdell Spencer ERDMAN, wholly owned subsidiary of Cogdell Spencer, Inc., signed two contracts totaling $88.8 million to construct two Healthcare facilities in Wisconsin. The deal helps solidify the company’s leading role in the Healthcare Real Estate Industry.

Cogdell Spencer ERDMAN will begin construction on both facilities later in 2009, and the estimated completion date is late in 2011. Both will be located in Janesville, WI.
