Project Information

Our capital construction program is extensive. The need to provide secure and safe shelter is more critical than ever in this time of terrorism attacks and threats. Tunis, Tunisia; Nairobi, Kenya; Kampala, Uganda and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania are but a few of our newly constructed embassy compounds with a strong emphasizes on security. Currently, we have 22 new Embassies in the planning stage, 66 rehabilitation projects underway with 53 planned for FY03 and 55 Capital Security Construction projects in our Long-Range Overseas Building Plan (LROBP) through FY08.

The links below provide a pictorial view of some of our current projects in various lifecycle phases. Each link displays an Artist rendering (or projection) of the constructed building, a recent site photo, and the estimated percentage of completion for the entire project. Currently, our major construction efforts include: New Embassy Compounds (NEC), Newly Acquired Buildings (NAB), and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) projects.

As of January 2009, OBO has opened 65 new facilities with an additional 31 under design and construction.
