The project scope involves the comprehensive renovation and reconfiguration of the U.S. Embassy campus in Bogotá, Colombia, to align with the evolving needs of the United States diplomatic presence. Epik International, with its relevant experience, is poised to provide exceptional design and construction services.
The primary focus of the project is on the Consular Affairs (CA) Section, spanning approximately 1,260 square meters. The objective is to create a modern, functional, and compliant workspace that can accommodate 151 positions. This includes the reconfiguration of the CA space, addition of interview windows, private offices, a larger conference room, and the creation of a swing space for staff moves during construction.
Design objectives emphasize flexibility, openness, and improved communication among staff. The project will include 7 private offices, a transaction window, a common entrance for applicants, and an expanded number of ACS interview windows. It will also address the needs of greeters, storage, IT, and breakroom facilities.
Structural changes will include the addition of new visa windows, infilling walls for security, and demolishing non-load bearing walls for more open space. The fire protection system will be upgraded with a new sprinkler system and reworked fire alarm system to ensure safety during renovations.
The project will be executed in phases to minimize disruption to CA operations, with a focus on preserving functionality throughout. The renovation aims to create a collaborative, well-lit, and comfortable work environment while adhering to OBO Design Standards and relevant codes.
