Hill International named project manager for new Saadiyat Island Resort development in Abu Dhabi
Hill International , the global leader in managing construction risk, announced that it has received a contract from the Sheikh Suroor Projects Department on behalf of H.H. Sheikh Suroor Bin Mohammed Al Nahyan to provide project management services during construction of a new Saadiyat Island resort development in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The initial one-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately AED 7.0 million ($1.9 million).
Saadiyat Island is located just off the coast of Abu Dhabi and is currently undergoing major development, with an approximate completion date of 2020. It will feature various commercial, residential and leisure projects and is expected to become Abu Dhabi’s cultural center. The island’s cultural district will eventually include eight museums designed by renowned architects such as Jean Nouvel, Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid. The new Saadiyat Island resort development to be managed by Hill will feature 293 rooms with a built-up area of approximately 113,000 square meters (1.2 million square feet).
“Saadiyat Island will be an incredible destination for visitors to the region,” said Mohammed Al Rais, Regional President (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group. “This new resort development for H.H. Sheikh Suroor will become one of the premier hospitality destinations on the island. We are very honored to be part of this exciting project,” added Al Rais.
