Hill International (HINT) announced that it has been awarded a contract from the New York City Department of Design and Construction to provide construction management services for the $17M modernization and preservation of the Museum of the City of New York (MCNY). The 2 ½ year contract has an estimated value of approximately $1.6M.
In addition to managing an earlier phase of the modernization project, which entailed the installation of a new slate tile roof and mechanical and electrical upgrades, MCNY’s contract with Hill International includes major alterations to office and administrative space as well as the entire south wing of the building. The first, second, and third floors of the building will be renovated to expand the museum’s exhibit and public space. For their work in the earlier phase of the project, Hill International received a Project Achievement Award from the Metro New York/ New Jersey Chapter of the Construction Management Association of America. The project is expected to begin in June 2008 and end by September 2010.
Hill International, based out of Marlton, New Jersey, has 70 offices worldwide and provides program, project and construction management, in addition to construction claims services.
