Hill International Receives Two Contracts from GSA Region 5
PHILADELPHIA, PA Hill International, the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received two contracts from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide construction manager as agent services during the modernization of two federal buildings in GSA's Region 5. The two contracts have an estimated combined value to Hill of approximately three million dollars.
The first project is the J.W. Peck Federal Building, which is a 10-story office building located at 550 Main St. in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The building was constructed in 1964 and it has approximately 119,000 usable square feet of vacant space throughout. GSA will be renovating approximately 230,000 square feet to extend its useful life and consolidate federal agencies from leased locations within Cincinnati. The project has an estimated total cost of approximately $30 million.
"We look forward to assisting our long-term client GSA with the modernization of these important federal facilities," said Vic Spinabelli, Jr., P.E., LEED AP, Senior Vice President with Hill's Project Management Group.
The second project is 985 Michigan Ave. in Detroit, Michigan. The federal office building is 10-stories above grade with a basement and has approximately 484,000 rentable square feet in addition to a 10-story parking garage with approximately 850 spaces. GSA will be renovating the building to extend its useful life and consolidate federal agencies from leased locations within Detroit. Renovation of the building systems includes improvements to the HVAC systems that will result in energy savings, repairs to the passenger and freight elevators, replacement of the roof, repairs to the building's windows and facade, upgrades to the fire alarm and sprinkler systems, repairs to the plumbing system and public restrooms, improvements to the electrical infrastructure, and repairs to the parking garage and site. The project has an estimated total cost of approximately $74.9 million.
