"I was always fascinated by anything related to construction,
and I still am," says Richter, whose father, attorney Irvin Richter,
created Hill International in 1976, and was its sole employee.
Today, Hill is a worldwide construction consulting company
with 60 offices worldwide, 1,400 employees and approximately
$200 million in revenues last year. The company is the largest
construction claims company in the world and the 17th largest
project management company in the United States.

all manner of construction-related documents and drawings,

a bit too young to be interested in its contents.
