Hill International Selected as Project Manager for the Restoration of the Historic Raffles Hotel Singapore

PHILADELPHIA and SINGAPORE, April 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a contract from Beach Road Hotel (1886) Ltd. to provide professional project management and construction management consultancy services during restoration of the historic Raffles Hotel Singapore.

The year was 1887 when the doors to the Raffles Hotel Singapore first opened.  Since then, this luxury five-star hotel has become an icon that epitomizes the romance of the Far East—an intoxicating blend of luxury, history and colonial design.  Situated in the heart of the business and civic district, Raffles is a veritable oasis in the city.  Its classic colonial architecture has been perfectly preserved and provides a stark but lively contrast against its modern skyscraper neighbors.

The 103-suite hotel has embarked on a program to restore the hotel and arcade.  Arcade restoration includes the Long Bar, Long Bar Steakhouse, Raffles Courtyard, the retail arcade and banqueting facilities.  Additional restoration projects include hotel suites, the lobby, ballroom and other common areas.

"This restoration project will help ensure that Raffles Singapore stays relevant and distinctive by keeping up with current hospitality standards," said Abdo E. Kardous, Hill's Senior Vice President and Managing Director (Asia/Pacific). "We are confident that our project team will deliver on all of our client's expectations," added Kardous.

Hill International, with 4,300 professionals in 100 offices worldwide, provides program management, project management, construction management, construction claims and other consulting services primarily to the buildings, transportation, environmental, energy and industrial markets.  Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the eighth largest construction management firm in the United States.  For more information on Hill, please visit our website at www.hillintl.com.
