Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has been awarded a contract to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services to Saudi Entertainment Venture Company (Seven) for the construction of two entertainment-cluster projects.

Seven is the execution and investment arm of the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia in the entertainment sector.

Each entertainment cluster is expected to have a built-up area of approximately 100,000 sq m.
