CMAA presented Hill with the 2017 Project Achievement Award in the category of Commercial, Sports, Entertainment and Hospitality at the CMAA Project Conference and Trade Show in Washington, DC, on October 10, 2017. This category encompassed projects valued at more than $50 million.

ENR Southeast announced Hill won the award for the "Best Project" in the Cultural/Worship category. For the awards, industry leaders critiqued candidates based on project challenges and teamwork, safety, innovation, industry contributions, craftsmanship, functionality of design and aesthetic quality and other areas. The award will be presented at the ENR Awards Ceremony in Orlando, FL, on November 17, 2017.

"We are honored to be recognized nationally by both CMAA and ENR for this project," says Eladio Castrodad, Vice President at Hill's Miami office. "Both awards reflect the extraordinary work of the entire team and their ability to manage a challenging situation with a positive attitude."

For the $275 million Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum the Hill team reestablished budget and schedule baselines and implemented a work plan that required mobilizing a new general contractor to meet project goals and objectives. The museum enjoys views of Biscayne Bay and the Port of Miami, and features such cutting-edge elements as a self-supporting planetarium dome and a 500,000 gallon, cone-shaped aquarium.
