US firm wins two contracts in Egypt and one in Morocco

The US-based Hill International has been awarded three project management contracts for major projects in North Africa.

The three contracts, which have a total value of about $7.5m, comprise two projects in Egypt and one in Morocco.

For one of the Egypt contracts, Hill will provide project management services for a new 85,000-seat stadium scheme planned for the local Al-Ahly Sports Club in the 6 October City. For the second Egyptian development, Hill will provide management services for the construction for Credit Agricole Egypt’s new $50m bank headquarters.

In Morocco, Hill will provide project controls services for the construction of the new $590m Casablanca Marina in Casablanca.

Hill International is already working on a number of major projects in North Africa. One of these is the 108,000-square-metre Egyptian Grand Museum project in Cairo.

Located in Giza, 20 kilometres southwest of central Cairo and 2km west of the Grand Pyramids, the project involves building a main exhibition hall for 100,000 artifacts, as well as a conference and learning centre. Completion is expected by July 2015.

A joint venture of US-based Hill International and the local Ehaf Consulting Engineers is managing the project. The client is the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), which is responsible for the conservation, protection and regulation of all antiquities and archaeological excavations in Egypt.

In December last year, the joint venture of the local Orascom Construction Industries (OCI) and Belgium’s Besix has won the estimated $810m contract to build the third phase of the museum.

Hill is also the project manager on the scheme to renovate the 370-room Nile Ritz Carlton hotel in Cairo.
