PHILADELPHIA and CAIRO, Egypt, Sept. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that one of the company’s projects has been recognized by Engineering News-Record (ENR) as one of the magazine’s 2016 Global Best Projects. The award will be presented to Hill on October 11, 2016 during ENR’s 2016 Global Construction Summit at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City.
Industry veterans selected 23 projects hailing from 15 different countries and five continents as outstanding examples of the risks and rewards—and the hurdles overcome—of designing and building internationally. The judges looked at projects in many markets and examined safety performance, innovations, challenges, and design and construction quality—with a special emphasis on the diversity of global project teams and their collaboration. They also considered how the projects benefit the local community and/or the construction industry.
Hill’s award-winning project was the Nile Ritz Carlton rehabilitation project in Cairo, Egypt, which received an Award of Merit in the category of “Renovation/Restoration.” The hotel, formerly operated as the Nile Hilton Hotel since 1959, is an iconic landmark of the Cairo skyline. The 13-story hotel was renovated to modernize the facility and to meet the modified design and specifications of the Ritz Carlton brand.
“We are honored to be receiving this award,” said Waleed Abdel-Fattah, Senior Vice President and Managing Director (Africa) for Hill’s Project Management Group. “We congratulate our client and our entire project team for this prestigious recognition,” added Abdel-Fattah.
