Hill International has renewed its contract with the City of Philadelphia’s Division of Aviation (DOA) to continue its support of Philadelphia International Airport’s (PHL) $2.375bn Capital Development Program.

Extension of the eighth, multi-year agreement will enable Hill to continue delivering better planning, implementation and control support for PHL’s Capital Development Program. There will be a special focus on projects and financial controls.
