PHILADELPHIA and SPOKANE, Wash. (May 29, 2019) – Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it has been awarded a contract to provide program and construction management services to support the Spokane Public Library’s $77 million bond program.
The program will help the Library realize its vision of thriving, flexible community destinations that deliver outstanding library services throughout the system. Specific projects include the remodel of the Downtown Library to consolidate back-of-house/technical services spaces and create opportunities for more patron use, such as a collaborative commons, art and music studios, maker spaces, daylight program rooms, and a café. The City has chosen to utilize GC/CM project delivery for the Downtown Library improvements. Other elements of the program include a 30,000 SF expansion of the Shadle branch, a new Libby Center (East Central) branch, a new Liberty Park branch, a new Hillyard (Shaw) branch, and upgrades to the Indian Trail, and South Hill branches.
Hill’s support for the program will include program and project management, GC/CM oversight, cost and schedule control, and construction management.
Matt Walker, AIA, CCM, DBIA, Hill Vice President in Spokane, said of the award, “Hill has a proven track record of delivering success for our Spokane clients, and we have the right team ready to help the Library realize their Program as-planned.
