PHILADELPHIA, PA and LOS ANGELES, CA, April 27, 2018 Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, has received a 2018 Project Achievement Award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) Southern California Chapter for the firm’s work on the Port of Long Beach (POLB) Pier G Metro Track Improvement and Wharf Repair project in Long Beach, CA. The award recognizes accomplishments in construction management, quality, and cost and schedule management, as well as project complexity, innovation, customer service, and safety.

The CMAA Southern California Chapter presented Hill with the award in the category of Transportation/Infrastructure projects valued under $10 million. The ceremony took place at the 26th Annual Awards Gala in Los Angeles on April 26, 2018.

Michael B. Smith, Senior Vice President and Western Regional Manager for Hill's Project Management Group, said, “We’re honored to receive recognition for this project.
