The Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) announces the construction award, through best value determination, of the new U.S. Embassy in The Hague, Netherlands to Caddell Construction Company of Montgomery, Alabama.

The new complex will be situated on a 10-acre site in Wassenaar and will include a chancery office building, U.S. Marine residence, a utility building, perimeter security, and access pavilions.

This project, designed by Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners of Santa Monica, California, will provide safe, secure, and modern facilities for embassy employees.

OBO’s mission is to provide safe, secure, and functional facilities that represent the U.S. Government to the host nation and support our staff in the achievement of U.S. foreign policy objectives. These facilities should represent American values and the best in American architecture, engineering, technology, sustainability, art, culture, and construction execution.
