PHILADELPHIA and RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it was awarded the contract to provide Facilities Management (FM) consultancy services to act as the Managing Agent for the Tatweer Building Company (TBC), which represents the Saudi Ministry of Education. This award consists of three main projects: two prestigious headquarters buildings in Riyadh, Riyadh Schools and associated administrative buildings, which consist of more than 2,000 facilities, and Eastern Province schools plus administrative buildings totaling another 2,000 facilities.
Hill International’s project staff will mobilize to deliver each of the above projects to the highest international facilities management standards and practices. Though similar, each project presents unique challenges, from geographical dispersion to local service provider management.
The current portfolio has more than 6,000 sites and TBC is scaling up their operations to accommodate the complete portfolio as part of the Ministry of Education’s goal of transforming the current educational system. The Saudi Ministry of Education is striving to deliver the best class of education for its students.
“As education is important to all of us, we are very pleased with this great opportunity to enable us to showcase our FM skills and raise the bar in the delivery standards within the region by applying our best international practices,” says Brian Murphy, Hill’s Director of Facilities Management.
“This is an important win for Hill International as these projects come with a great cause and will have a significant impact in the region. I am confident that Hill’s FM team will bring its most skillful resources and talents,” says Raouf Ghali, Hill’s Chief Executive Officer.
