Caddell Construction Awarded Contract for the Design and Construction of the New U.S. Embassy Compound in Nassau, Bahamas
Caddell Construction has been awarded a contract for $223,885,950 by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations to design and build the New U.S. Embassy Compound in Nassau, Bahamas.
Caddell has been partnering with the U.S. State Department for the design and construction of U.S. embassies and consulates since 2000 and has established a solid reputation for taking on difficult and unique construction challenges.
In this case, the challenge will be logistical, as coordinating the delivery of materials on an island requires careful planning and skill. Caddell has extensive experience constructing on islands, with a portfolio that includes previous projects on 9 distinct islands around the world, including four other U.S. embassies, a medical/dental clinic, power and desalination plant, and a military commissary and guest house.
Caddell’s architect of record for the project is Integrus Architecture in Spokane, Washington. The Caddell/Integrus team has worked together on 17 previous projects, totaling nearly $3.1 billion, winning numerous industry awards.
Caddell CEO Eddie Stewart said the company is especially honored by the important work they do on embassies. “Caddell is proud of our long-standing relationship with the Department of State on 34 projects. We deeply appreciate the opportunity to support America’s mission to build new, high-security diplomatic facilities worldwide,” he said.
