PHILADELPHIA and HINGHAM, Mass., June 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hill International (NYSE:HIL), delivering the infrastructure of change, announced today it was selected by the Town of Hingham, MA, to provide owner’s project management services for the Town’s New Public Safety Building.
Following a feasibility study prepared in 2020, the Town moved forward with the schematic design of a new facility to contain the Town’s police headquarters building and the North Fire Station. The police department, in particular, has outgrown its current facilities in Hingham’s Town Hall, where public safety operations have been housed since the 1990s. This facility will be constructed at centrally located 335 Lincoln Street to better service the whole community.
The project involves the planning, design, and construction of the facility. Hill will provide the owner with a full range of project management services from design through close-out. The project is forecasted to conclude in 2024.
“Our project team is a group of talented professionals, all very familiar with public building projects,” says Peter Martini, Hill’s First Vice President of New England Operations. “They know how to help public owners navigate construction conditions, whether that involves putting together a project charter that meets the needs of all stakeholders or helping police and fire agencies maintain their life-saving operations during construction. We look forward to supporting the Town and helping bring about their vision for the New Public Safety Building.”
Hill Chief Executive Officer Raouf Ghali adds: “Hill is a proud partner for towns and cities around the world. This is especially true in New England, where Peter Martini’s team has managed more than $1 billion in public projects in Massachusetts alone. With their Public Safety Building project, the Town of Hingham offers us an excellent opportunity to continuing growing our business in the region.”
