Hill International Wins CMAA Project Achievement Award For The Gold Line Bridge In Southern California

MARLTON, N.J. and IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has won a national Project Achievement Award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA). The award was presented to Hill at CMAA's recent National Conference and Trade Show held on October 27-29, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hill was recognized for its role as program manager for the $1.6 billion Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension light rail project, an 11.5-mile extension of the Los Angeles Metro's Gold Line from Pasadena to Azusa. The specific project that was honored was the $19.8 million Gold Line Bridge, which won the award in the category of "Infrastructure Project with Constructed Value Less Than $25 Million."

The Gold Line Bridge is a 584-foot-long cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete bridge, stretching diagonally across the Eastbound I-210 Freeway in Arcadia.  The bridge's design was meant to honor the local indigenous people and wildlife of the San Gabriel Valley. The architecturally-rich structure features 25-foot-tall precast basket elements, together with a ribbed exterior girder symbolizing the underbelly of the Western Diamondback rattlesnake.

"We are extremely honored to have received this national award from CMAA," said John K. Skoury, P.E., Senior Vice President in charge of Hill's rail and transit practice in California.  "It is a reflection of the hard work and professionalism of all of our team members," added Skoury.

CMAA is North America's only organization dedicated exclusively to the interests of professional construction management and program management.  The association, formed in 1982, currently has more than 11,000 members, including individual CM/PM practitioners, corporate members, and construction owners in both the public and private sectors, along with academic and associate members. For more information on CMAA, please visit their website at www.cmaanet.org .

Hill International, with 3,900 employees in 100 offices worldwide, provides program management, project management, construction management and construction claims and consulting services primarily to the buildings, transportation, environmental, energy and industrial markets.  Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the 9th largest construction management firm in the United States. For more information on Hill, please visit our website at www.hillintl.com .
