Hanscomb has recently begun working with ACG Architects on proposed renovations to the Chancery and staff residences for the Embassy. Services include cost estimating during design, phasing plans/scheduling, preparation of bid documents/procurement advice, bid analysis and recommendation, payment application reviews, and change order reviews during construction.
The Embassy of Kenya is in a historically protected zone where the building facades are to be preserved. The interior of the building will be remodeled to replace all existing electrical and mechanical installations and to create modern office spaces. The project will be completed in six phases with the first five phases focusing on the renovation and remodeling of the main building including security enhancements, window replacement, re-roofing, and the creation of a modern reception space. Phase six will focus mainly on the renovations to the Ambassador’s Residence in Potomac, MD and redevelopment/repairs to three staff residential houses, all in Washington, DC.
