U.S. Embassy Additions - Kabul, Afghanistan
The work at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan was Caddell’s largest and most complex contract to date. Building an $800+ million project anywhere is a major achievement, but mobilizing the manpower, materials and equipment to build a secure diplomatic facility of this size in a landlocked country at war took the very best in project management, coordination, creativity and innovation.
With logistical roadblocks at every turn, an intense security environment and a workforce speaking nine different languages, the challenges were daunting. The Caddell team responded with resiliency and excellence, met all project objectives and successfully completed 14 new buildings–totaling more than1.3 million SF–on an active diplomatic facility whose mission-critical wartime operation could not be interrupted.
