Consultant Hill International has won a contract to provide construction management services on the $200m (£99m) New Town Program at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Langley Research Centre in Virginia, US.

The contract was awarded by the US General Services Administration and will be worth around $7 (£3.4m) to Hill.

Robert Hixon, senior vice president and director of Hill’s Federal Buildings Group, said: “Hill is honoured to have been selected by GSA to manage this critical modernisation project for NASA.”

NASA’s programme involves the design and construction of five or six new buildings, at least one building renovation, and extensive demolition. The buildings include administrative, laboratory and shared-use facilities.
