US-based construction consulting firm Hill International has secured a contract from Azvil Tikinti MMC for offering project management consulting services for the Baku Tower development in Azerbaijan.

The 50-storey tower will be the tallest skyscraper in the country.

Baku Tower will stand at 3,645ft-high and be built on the man-made Khazar Islands in the Caspian Sea, about 16 miles away from Baku.

Avesta Group is developing the project with an investment of $2bn, and completion is for 2019.

"Baku Tower will be an impressive addition to the Baku skyline, accenting the already iconic Flame Towers."

Under the terms of the $3.7m contract, Hill will provide consulting services for construction management, establishment of project procedures, project scheduling, quality control, and technical supervision for all structural works.

Hill project management group senior vice-president and managing director (Europe) John A Arnold said: "Baku Tower will be an impressive addition to the Baku skyline, accenting the already iconic Flame Towers."

Flame Towers is a multi-use complex that is also located in the capital. Rising almost 200m, the skyscraper was part of $6bn-a-year redevelopment plan in the city.

The complex comprises three separate towers offering residential, hotel and office space, respectively.

The redevelopment was intended to transform Baku into a modern, iconic city and attract tourism.
