Hill International has secured two contracts from New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) to provide construction management and inspection services on the city’s transit system until 2024.

The two contracts awarded to Hill International include indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts.

The orders have been split according to their funding, where one is a federally funded contract and the other is state funded.

Hill International vice president George Keeber said: “We are well equipped to handle the challenges of managing work on New York City’s massive public transportation system.

“Our prioritisation of safety, experience with public transit agencies around the world, and awareness of the unique qualities of NYC construction projects will help us deliver these and other task orders for MTA on time and under budget.”

Presently, Hill has its professionals mobilised on two task orders under the IDIQ contracts. One is at 170th Street station of the Jerome Avenue Line in the Bronx, where Hill will manage construction renovations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The project will include a new elevator and renovations to the station stairways. It will be executed under a design-build contract delivery method. The company will execute the construction while working with the Design–Builders design group.

Similarly, at Flushing Main Street station, in Queens, one of the high volume commuter stations, the company will offer identical construction management services to the MTA under another task order.

At Flushing Line IRT station of the New York City Subway, the company is coordinating with another Design-Build contract to facilitate smooth passenger circulation.

The contract includes redesign of station stairways and renovation of the station in accordance with ADA.

Hill International CEO Raouf Ghali “Our local team looks forward to delivering these and future task orders for our valued clients at MTA and for the people of New York.

“It’s an exceptional honour to be entrusted with two extensive IDIQ contracts and two major task orders from one of the premier providers of public transit around the world.”

Recently, Hill was selected by Casa dos Ventos to provide owner’s engineering and construction management services for building two wind farms: Rio do Vento Phase 2 and Babilônia Sul, with 900MW of capacity.
