Tender published for refurb of British embassy in Washington, DC

Britain's Foreign & Commonwealth Office is planning to spend US$70m refurbishing its embassy in Washington, DC.

The repair and refurbishment project includes the 6,000m2 Ambassador’s Residence, the 2,000m2 Old Chancery Building and the more modern 10,000m2 New Chancery Building.

A contract notice has now been published to procure a contractor for the job, which is planned to start on site in July 2019, with a projected completion late 2021.

Tenders or requests to participate must be submitted electronically via: (link opens in new tab).

Market engagement events were held in June in both London and Washington to brief interested contractors.

The Ambassador's Residence is on Massachusetts Avenue. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and built in 1928.
