U.S. Embassy – Baghdad Power Plant

U.S. Embassy Baghdad; Master Plan Implementation – Baghdad, Iraq

Implementation of the Baghdad Embassy Master Plan required multiple tasks, including the design of several new buildings and the adaptive reuse of the existing power plant. Various site structures and underground tanks and manholes were also designed and coordinated to facilitate the civil engineer requirements.

  • NEC Power Plant (25,000 SF)
  • Rehabilitated Existing Power Plant (18,500 SF)
