It’s not a big deal but Hill International (NYSE:HIL) announced July 7 that it has acquired the Construction Management Division of dck worldwide, LLC. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The Construction Management Division of dck worldwide, with approximately 90 employees, provides program management, agency construction management and construction inspection services primarily on transportation and building projects in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida. This group primarily provided non-contracting services. dck’s construction groups, which will still perform construction management contracts will remain unaffected by this transaction. No formal announcement was made by dck as to the assignments of the CM Division employees in their Jefferson Hills offices.
On the regional level dck has been more active in the past year, competing for the kinds of projects that the former Dick Corp. would have built in the institutional and commercial sectors. The company is currently bidding on a $10 million ambulatory center for Canonsburg Hospital, a $200 million youth detention center in Baltimore, the $100 million second phase of the FBI building in Clarksburg and the $15 million Uniontown-Brownsville maintenance facility for the Turnpike Commission.
