Firm is consultant on an operating center for the largest financial institution in Mexico

Hill International has received a contract from BBVA Bancomer, the largest financial institution in Mexico, to provide construction management services for its new operating centre in Mexico City.

Designed by architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the new centre is to be built in the Parques Polanco complex on Avenida Mariano Escobedo at Laguna de Mayran, on a site stretching 13,400m2.

The building will be 137m high, with 32 floors, and is expected to house approximately 4,500 employees in 150,000m2 of office space. Construction of the building is expected to be completed in 2012.

Jose Manuel Albaladejo Canedo-Arguelles, Hill’s vice president for Latin America, said: “Hill’s continuous presence in the country and throughout the region has allowed us to build a team of construction professionals that deliver world-class services to our clients, and this new contract is in many ways a recognition of this.”
