US-based construction management consultant Hill International has received two contracts from the Saudi Industrial Property Authority (MODON) to provide program management consultancy support services in connection with the "Living Communities Program" in Saudi Arabia.
The two contracts have a combined estimated value to Hill of approximately $6m, Hill said.
The $270m Living Communities Program is designed to support the industrial cities of Saudi Arabia by offering healthcare, education, commercial and social amenities.
The first phase of the program will include residential communities supporting the cities of Jeddah, Dammam, Sudair, Al Kharj, Madinah and Hail.
"We are very excited to be part of the Living Communities Program," said Mohammed Al Rais, Regional President (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.
"This program will have a major positive impact on the targeted cities," added Al Rais.
Hill International has 100 offices worldwide.
Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the seventh largest construction management firm in the United States.
