Hill International received a contract from the Central Puget Sound Regional Transit Authority (Sound Transit) to provide design-build project management services in connection with the E360 Segment of the East Link Light Rail project.

Phase I of the contract for pre-construction phase services is for approximately $1 million over a one-year period. Phase II of the contract for construction phase services, if exercised by Sound Transit, is anticipated to have an estimated value to Hill of approximately $21 million over a subsequent four-year period, for a total contract value of approximately $22 million.

The E360 Segment, the terminal segment of the East Link Light Rail extension, is a 1.8-mile line stretching from East Bellevue to the main Microsoft campus in Redmond. The alignment includes aerial guideway, at-grade and retained cut sections, and features two new platform stations, two pedestrian bridges and a 300-vehicle parking garage. The estimated civil construction cost of the project, which is expected to be completed in late 2019, is approximately $200 million to $250 million.

Hill will provide project management services on the design-build project that will be executed in two phases. During the preconstruction phase (Phase I), Hill will provide support to Sound Transit through the procurement of the design-build contractor, including reviewing and modifying the RFP and design-build contract and reviewing the preliminary designs of the short-listed teams.

During the construction phase (Phase II), Hill will continue to provide review services during the development of the design and expand services to include project management, estimating, scheduling, quality control, inspection, safety and commissioning.
