Consultant wins contract on £30m scheme for British High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria

Consultant Ridge has won the competition to provide project management and QS services for a £30m scheme to build new offices for the British High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria.

This will be the 11th overseas project that Ridge has undertaken for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

A key aspect of the brief is to adopt environmentally sustainable designs and construction techniques, without compromising the rigorous security, aesthetics and financial constraints.

The design team will be led by RTKL.

The scheme is scheduled to complete by the end of 2010.
