August 2017

Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has secured a major contract from leading developer Emaar Properties to provide programme management services in connection with the Dubai Creek Harbour Development in Dubai.

Hill said its initial one-year contract has an estimated value of Dh27.8 million ($7.6 million).

The Dubai Creek Harbour Development has a gross floor area of 113 million sq ft and will feature residential developments, services apartments, villas, branded hotels and a lifestyle retail district. The development comprises nine districts with a 30-year phased build-out. Emaar estimates building 2,000 units per year over the first five years.

Key structures will include a tower that will exceed the height of Burj Khalifa, a mega retail district, a sanctuary development with exclusive villas and a canal district.

“Dubai Creek Harbour Development is indicative of Dubai’s construction resurgence,” remarked Mohammed Al Rais, the regional president (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.

“Its marquee structures, high-end amenities and ambitious growth plan will support Dubai’s business and tourism growth for many years to come,” he added.
