PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it was awarded a contract to provide project management services for the Georgian company HPM LLC, representing Archi for a new project in the town of Kobuleti with residential, commercial, and hospitality components.
HPM represents Archi, a leading development company in Georgia focused on delivering modern, environmentally friendly, and energy-efficient housing solutions at the highest European standards of comfort. Archi is continuing to invest in Georgian housing and hospitality infrastructure by developing new hotel-type apartments on a plot of approximately 20,000 SM in the southwestern part of Georgia along the coast of the Black Sea.

The project also includes a 4-star hotel, restaurants, a ballroom, indoor and outdoor pools, a casino, and sport and entertainment facilities. Upon completion, Archi’s investment will contribute significantly to the tourism industry in the Adjara region of southwestern Georgia, adding a new landmark destination to a region under continuous development.
Hill will provide project management, construction management, and site supervision services across all stages of the project: design procurement and design management stage, construction management for construction and fit-out stage, and commissioning management stage.
