WYG lands global deal for UK embassies

1 Dec 11 WYG has secured a contract to support the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) on the global delivery of property-related projects.

The four-year framework covers commissions to supply professional property-related services on all the FCO’s buildings across the world, including embassies, consulates and visa offices.

The WYG team can be called on to inspect  British assets and properties in more than 200 countries, reporting on their condition and advising on statutory and legal compliance. The team will then advise on subsequent works required and prepare scheme proposals, potentially working with local suppliers and sub-consultants.

“A commission from the FCO carries significant weight and influence,” said WYG regional director Philip Norris. “Our inclusion on this framework will further enhance WYG’s profile globally, as the group seeks to grow its international business.

“Providing these services throughout the world will be an interesting challenge, and one that will draw on our international experience of thorough logistical planning for socio-economic donor funded projects in similar locations.”
