AECOM In Association With Hill International Selected To Manage Construction Of New Midfield Terminal Complex At Abu Dhabi International Airport

MARLTON, N.J. and ABU DHABI, UAE, Aug. 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that AECOM Technology Corp. (NYSE:ACM), in association with Hill has received a $85 million contract from the Abu Dhabi Airports Company to provide construction management and supervision services for the new Midfield Terminal Complex at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Hill's five-year subcontract to AECOM has an estimated value of approximately $42.0 million.

Abu Dhabi International Airport is the primary gateway to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.  As Abu Dhabi evolves into a global city where increasing numbers of people choose to live and to visit, the passenger traffic at Abu Dhabi International Airport has also been growing in tandem.  By 2015, 20 million people are expected to use Abu Dhabi International Airport as their origin, destination or transit point for their international flights. This growth trend is expected to continue well into the future as the overall economy expands and diversifies. To this effect, the Emirate of Abu Dhabi is undertaking a multi-billion-dollar investment program to ensure that the airport is able to provide world-class services, infrastructure and facilities to meet this demand.

The centerpiece of the Emirate's multi-billion-dollar investment program is the Midfield Terminal Complex, which comprises a state-of-the-art terminal facility, the Midfield Terminal Building, which will include a vast array of duty-free offerings, restaurants, lounges and much more, to cater for a capacity of 20-40 million passengers per year. The development program will also include airside and landside infrastructure, a multi-story car park, cargo building, catering building, maintenance complex and other supporting facilities.

The Midfield Terminal Building will be the largest in Abu Dhabi, and one of the region's most architecturally impressive structures. The Terminal will be 700,000 square meters in area. The central space of the building could hold three full-sized football fields and features a ceiling 52 meters (171 feet) tall at its highest point. For more information on the project, please visit its website at www.adac.ae/mtc .

"We are extremely honored to be teamed with AECOM on this landmark project," said Raouf S. Ghali, President of Hill's Project Management Group (International).  "We are confident that construction of the Midfield Terminal Complex will be a tremendous success for our client," Ghali added.
