Construction consulting firm Hill International has signed a contract with the City of Miami Beach to manage the renovation and expansion of the aging Miami Beach Convention Center.

The three-and-a-half year contract is estimated to create $4 million in value for Hill International, according to the company’s news release. The company has 100 offices worldwide. The $500 million renovation and expansion will bring the convention center up to class A standards.

Built in 1957, the convention center has expanded throughout the years from its original 108,000 square feet to its current size of 1.2 million square feet. The project will touch on multiple aspects of the convention center, including exhibit halls, kitchens, loading docks and bathrooms. 

A new ballroom and meeting spaces are being added, and 880 surface parking spaces are being converted into a 6.5-acre public park. New rooftop parking will replace those converted spaces. – Chris Guanche
