U.S. Embassy and Consulate Projects

Multiple Locations Worldwide

Project Description

In 2001, Page began to pursue a new generation of design-build embassy projects offered by the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Overseas Building Operations (OBO). Since its first commission as the design partner for H.B. Zachary Co. on the New Embassy Compound (NEC) at Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 2002, Page has been a design partner on more than two dozen U.S. embassy and consular projects around the world.

Although the size, complexity and contract values vary greatly, all of these projects share certain characteristics. All are active U.S. diplomacy and consular affairs facilities, so setting the appropriate image and integrating local cultural references into the design are crucial considerations. Each compound contains a number of facility types ranging from the dignity of a chancery office building to more utilitarian maintenance, storage and building services facilities; some aspects of modern embassy design involve sophisticated building technologies and intricate functional relationships. In addition to being designed according to extensive physical and technical security standards, each new State Department project is now designed according to LEED certification criteria.
