Hill International Wins Project Achievement Award from CMAA's Southern
MARLTON, N.J. and LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill
International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk,
announced today that it has been recognized with a regional Project
Achievement Award from the Southern California Chapter of the Construction
Management Association of America (CMAA). The award was presented to Hill on
March 27, 2013 at the chapter's 21st Annual Awards Gala held at the J.W.
Marriott/L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.
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
Gold Line from Pasadena to Azusa. The specific project that was honored was
the $19.8 million Gold Line Bridge, which won the award for "Transportation
Project Between $11-$50 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 award," 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 excellence and professionalism of our
team members," added Skoury.
