Ho-Chunk Nation Selects Hill International to Provide Management Services for the Delivery of New Beloit, Wisconsin Gaming Destination

 

PHILADELPHIA, PA and BELOIT, WI – April 24, 2019 – Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it has been awarded a contract to provide owner’s management support to assist with pre-construction and design activities for a proposed new, $405 million hotel resort and casino located in Beloit, Wisconsin. The new hotel resort and casino would be located near the Wisconsin-Illinois border on a 75-acre site directly across from the Wisconsin Welcome Center.

David Greendeer, Executive Director of Business at Ho-Chunk Nation, said of the project, "The compact we have with the State of Wisconsin provides for an additional casino. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to create an entertainment destination while creating thousands of local jobs."

“Our trust and familiarity with Hill International speaks volumes,” Greendeer continues, “as we worked with the Hill team on three recently completed, separate gaming expansion projects [known as Project Forward] across Wisconsin. Each project generated significant economic impact for the Ho-Chunk Nation, and each was delivered as-planned. Given Hill’s track record on the Black River Falls project specifically, where they helped realize an early completion for us, we felt it was the smart choice to bring them back on-board for our new Beloit project.”

The hotel resort and casino will include the latest in guest amenities, dining, lodging, and a gaming experience encompassing slot machines and table games in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The Beloit project also calls for a water park and conference center. Pending state and federal approvals, Ho-Chunk officials plan to begin construction in 2020, with a grand opening anticipated in 2022.

Hill International Senior Program Manager Harry Corken said of Hill’s selection, “Our track record with the Ho-Chunk Nation covers several successful casino and resort projects, so we can leverage this experience on the new hotel resort and casino. Ideally, we will realize numerous project efficiencies and cost savings. Similar to our work on Project Forward, I expect this project to be a success for everyone involved.”
