Hill International has won a three-year contract to deliver project management (PM) services from Saudi Arabia’s sharia’ah-compliant Bank Aljazira.
As part of the deal, Hill is tasked with PM delivery for the pre-design, design, and construction of Bank Aljazira’s regional management office building in Riyadh.
The project is planned to be located in the north of Riyadh, which a Hill statement describes as “the centre of new major developments for the next 20 years”.
While a concept or design for the project was not revealed, Hill said it would be “one of Riyadh’s landmarks”.
Commenting on the project, Abdo Kardous, regional president for the Middle East at Hill, said: “This project marks Bank Aljazira’s remarkable growth and success story.
“We are honoured by this appointment and look forward to providing Hill’s expertise and experience in delivering a quality project on time and within budget while supporting the region’s plans for economic growth.”
Kardous was named as one of the Middle East’s top business leaders in the 2018 Construction Week Power 100 list. He joined Hill in 1997 as part of the team managing the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque project in Abu Dhabi.
Prior to that, he was the real-estate development manager at the firm rebuilding Beirut City Centre.
