Our Story

With over four decades’ experience – from construction and manufacturing to processes and technology – HKA is a leading global consultancy, providing seamless access to advisory, consulting and expert services.

HKA Tech is our technology group that focuses on delivery of the PMWeb software solution for management of capital works projects throughout their lifecycle – from concept, through delivery, to long-term asset management. HKA Tech is the largest implementing reseller of PMWeb globally

In December 2016, the construction claims group of Hill International, Inc was acquired by Bridgepoint Development Capital (BDC), part of Bridgepoint, an international private equity group headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Bridgepoint is one of Europe’s largest private equity firms. In 2022, Bridgepoint's ownership was acquired by PAI Partners - one of the top five private equity firms in France, ranked according to total funds raised in the last 10 years. PAI Partners is one of the oldest and most experienced private equity firms, with origins dating back to 1872 and €22.4 billion (approx $33.2 billion AUD) assets under managements.

Over the last decade, our Group has grown both organically and through a series of strategic acquisitions to become the world’s leading construction risk management and claims consulting firm, providing professional services to a diverse, international client base.

United as a single unified group, under the HKA brand, our collective skills, knowledge and expertise positions us as a preeminent global brand in our space. Our services are delivered through worldwide operations that comprise more than 1,000 professionals operating across 40+ offices in 18 countries.

HKA Tech’s origins date back to the formation of PCI Group in 1996 and the development of its expertise in construction industry software solutions. From 2006 to 2008, PCI Group was the #1 global dealer for Prolog, implementing project control solutions and training clients in the use of both Prolog and Primavera. PCI Group was acquired by Hill in 2008, continuing its focus on construction industry software solutions and project control technologies as Hill PCI.

Hill PCI became a dealer for PMWeb in 2011, as the product was rapidly gaining recognition as a leading software solution for managing capital works projects. By 2013, Hill PCI had become the world’s largest implementing reseller for PMWeb – a position it maintains to this day as HKA Tech.

HKA Tech is in the unique position of not only providing PMWeb software and implementing the solution; but also being part of the global HKA organisation that is a recognised leader in the management of capital works projects.

HKA maintains its own PMWeb facility - originally located in a secure Equinix premium data centre and now in the Microsoft Azure Cloud - delivering PMWeb controls over the Internet, to our project delivery teams,  anywhere in the world. We can therefore speak with a great deal of experience when advising on not only the product itself and how to go about implementing it; but also the detail of running programs, projects and contracts in PMWeb on a daily basis.

We keep our clients’ business interests and directions in mind, challenging the norm and offering and implementing innovative solutions. All of our work is underpinned by solid project management principles. We don’t just theorise; we deliver practical solutions that can be implemented and deliver results – making the best possible outcome a reality, every time.
