Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has secured a contract to provide project management services for the Arab African International Bank for its new headquarters project in New Cairo, Egypt.
The scope of work includes the design and construction of a new headquarters building consisting of a ground floor and five typical floors with a total area of 28,100 sq m in addition to three basements levels for car parking with a total area of about 25,300 sq m, said the US-based company.
Hill will provide project management and construction management services across all stages of the project: design procurement and design management, construction management for construction and fit-out, and the defects liability period stage, it added.
On the contract win, Hill Senior Vice President and Africa Managing Director Waleed Abdel Fattah, said this was an exciting new project for the group in Cairo.
“We have already been privileged to complete and handover several major international banks’ headquarters projects in Cairo in the last five years, and this project adds a new bank’s headquarters to our current portfolio,” stated Fattah.
“Now, drawing on this local experience, our team will be able to help deliver a successful project,” he added.
CEO Raouf Ghali said Hill has had a very strong presence in Egypt and a successful track of iconic projects implemented there.
“It is clear that our team in the region has built Hill an excellent reputation by reliably and successfully delivering complex work,” he stated.
