NYC Department of Design and Construction Selects Hill International for Major Jails Program

NEW YORK, NY — Hill International, Inc., a global construction management firm, announces that the New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYCDDC) selected a joint venture of AECOM and Hill to provide program and project management for New York City’s borough-based jails program.

This multi-billion-dollar program features constructing four new jails in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx to allow for the city to close its main jail on Rikers Island. NYCDDC and AECOM-Hill will manage the design-build construction of the four new facilities.

The AECOM-Hill program management services include creating procedures, protocols, forms and program and project manuals for all aspects of the program; developing procurement strategies and protocols; and creating program- and project-specific virtual document and payment control systems.

In addition, the joint venture will prepare and manage industry outreach strategies; prepare specifications and criteria for each design-build project; and monitor the design-build teams’ M/WBE requirements. The joint venture will also manage the four jail projects until closeout and provide quality assurance/quality control services.

“This is going to be a transformative program for New York City, and we’re grateful the DDC has entrusted the AECOM-Hill joint venture with managing it,” said Hill’s Senior Vice President and Northeast Regional Manager Dominick Fickeria. “We look forward to maximizing our technical and managerial expertise in a proactive and collaborative manner to help the DDC achieve all of its goals as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
