Hill International to Manage Construction of New SCI-Phoenix in Pennsylvania

MARLTON, NJ & PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 15, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a task order from the Department of General Services of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to provide construction management services in connection with the new $400 million State Correctional Institution-Phoenix to be constructed in Skippack Township, Pennsylvania adjacent to the existing SCI-Graterford Prison. The three-year task order has an expected value to Hill of approximately $9.8 million.

The existing facility, SCI-Graterford, was originally built in 1929 and is Pennsylvania's largest maximum-security prison. The new SCI-Phoenix, which is expected to be completed by 2015, will consist of two separate facilities, a maximum security prison and a medium security prison.

"This project will greatly enhance the functionality and efficiency of Pennsylvania's correctional facilities," said Michael V. Griffin, P.E., Hill's Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic Regional Manager. "We look forward to making sure that its construction is a success," Griffin added.
