The Port of Long Beach Selects Hill International to Provide Program Management for the Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility Program

PHILADELPHIA and IRVINE, Calif., July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it has been awarded a contract to support the management of the Port of Long Beach’s Pier B On-Dock Rail Support Facility program. The 14-year program, which the Port calls the “centerpiece” of its $1 billion rail improvement program, will reconfigure and expand the existing Pier B Rail Yard to support the increased use of on-dock rail in the harbor. Each on-dock rail will save approximately 750 truck trips between the Port and off-dock rail yards. Moving more containers by rail will also help the Port’s marine terminals transfer cargo more efficiently and help achieve the environmental goals in the Port’s Clean Air Action Plan.

The Hill team’s services will include program management, project controls and real estate management, project coordination, master scheduling review, third-party coordination, reporting to the Port, risk management, constructability review, grant management, permitting support, contractor prequalification, quality assurance, cost engineering, utility, oil field and real estate relocation, and acquisition support.

“This is a trend-setting program,” says John Skoury, Senior Vice President & Deputy Regional Manager in Hill’s Irvine, CA, office. “POLB is a leader in handling and shipping container freight for the entire U.S., and we can expect other port facilities to follow suit on their own projects. The team we have in place at POLB has worked closely with the Port for years now on similarly ambitious and necessary assignments, and we will apply the best practices of this work to augment POLB’s own team in making the Pier B program a success.”
