The Department of State’s Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO) announces the construction award, through best value determination, for Phase II of the major rehabilitation project in Vilnius, Lithuania, to Enviro-Management and Research, Inc. (EMR) of Springfield, Virginia.

The three-phased project is being implemented on the existing 10-acre site in central Vilnius, where site work of the major rehabilitation project included in Phase I was completed in 2010. Phase II, designed by Kling Stubbins of Washington, DC, includes the expansion of the Post Communications Center (PCC); heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), and sprinkler system upgrades; and egress.

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.
