Hill International wins Palm Jumeirah hotel deal

August 2014

HILL International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has received a contract from Das Real Estate to provide project management consultancy services during construction of the Langham Palm Jumeirah hotel in Dubai.

The one-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately Dh5.7 million ($1.6 million). The Dh323-million ($88 million) hotel will feature two seven-storey buildings connected by a sky bridge on the third floor. The five-star property, with a built-up area of 82,000 sq m, will have 323 guest rooms. Construction is expected to be completed in early 2015.

“Having been part of bringing Palm Jumeirah to fruition, it’s exciting for Hill to be back managing a premier hotel project on the island,” said Mohammed Al Rais, senior vice-president and managing director (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.
