Caddell Construction Co. has been awarded a contract for the construction of the US Embassy in Asuncion, Paraguay.
New U. S. Embassy
Caddell was awarded a construction contract by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations for the new U.S. Embassy in Asuncion, Paraguay. The multi-building complex will be situated on a 14-acre site at the same location as the existing embassy. The project will include a New Office Building, U.S. Marine Residence, Entry Pavilion, Facilities for the Community, Support Annex, and a Parking Structure.
The project will be performed in three phases. In phase one, the new embassy will be constructed while the existing embassy continues to operate. To minimize disruption to on-going Post activities, Caddell will install temporary utility and security systems. Once the new building is complete, the embassy staff will move into the new facility. Phase two will include the construction of the U.S. Marine Residence. Demolition of the old embassy and the construction of other support facilities are included in the third phase.
The award of the new Embassy in Asuncion is Caddell’s 28th diplomatic facility contract since 2000, and Caddell’s first Embassy project in South America. Construction will commence in 2017 with project completion anticipated in 2021.
Contract amount: $165,823,000.00.
