PHILADELPHIA and MIAMI, March 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced that Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine selected the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Downtown Miami’s Museum Park as one of the nation’s best projects for 2017.

ENR selects top regional winners annually from 10 regions for each of the 20 project categories, which are then moved up to the national competition. ENR Southeast previously presented the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science with the “Best Project” award in the Cultural/Worship category, qualifying the project for “Best of the Best” recognition at the national level.

The Best of the Best Project Award honors the project team’s ability to overcome critical challenges and instill teamwork, uphold local and international safety standards, incorporate innovation techniques and industry contributions, demonstrate craftsmanship and produce functional design and aesthetic quality to help the project achieve its mission and goals.

“To have any project selected as ENR’s Best of the Best award is truly an honor, but this recognition is particularly satisfying because of how hard our team worked and the tremendous finished product,” said Hill Vice President and Miami Office Manager Eladio Castrodad. “Frost Science is a downtown destination that has and will continue to educate and entertain residents and visitors for many years. We’re certainly proud of it.”

Located in Downtown Miami, the new museum features a three-level aquarium, a state-of-the-art, 250-seat planetarium and north and west wing buildings that facilitate and promote interactive science learning. 

Faced with delays and other challenges, Hill’s team was brought onboard and quickly reestablished budget and schedule baselines, while implementing a work plan that required mobilizing a new general contractor to meet project goals and objectives.
