MARLTON, N.J. and RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a contract extension from the Public Pension Agency of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to continue providing project management services in connection with development of the $7.8 billion King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.  The one-year contract extension has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $6.6 million.

The King Abdullah Financial District is anticipated to be the biggest financial district in the Middle East and a strategic development for the city of Riyadh.  The site is approximately 1.6 million square meters (17.2 million square feet) and the development is expected to have floor space of over 3.0 million square meters (32.3 million square feet).  The Financial District is expected to be the headquarters for the Capital Market Authority, the Tadawul Stock Exchange and other major financial institutions, as well as a location for financial service providers such as accountants, auditors, lawyers, analysts, rating agencies, consultants and technology providers.  The anticipated cost of the development is approximately SAR 29.0 billion ($7.8 billion).

"We are honored to be part of this state-of-the-art development for doing business and facilitating investment both within the Kingdom and throughout the Middle East," said Mohammed Al Rais, Senior Vice President and Managing Director (Middle East) for Hill's Project Management Group.  "We are proud of the confidence that the Public Pension Agency continues to entrust in our team," added Al Rais.
