URS Scott Wilson and RTKL on embassy framework

URS Scott Wilson, RTKL and Jordon & Bateman have won places on the Foreign Office architectural and lead design services framework

The three companies will compete to design British embassies around the world. URS Scott Wilson and RTKL both have headquarters in the United States of America.

A host of architects with previous embassy experience missed out on places on the framework.

It was reported that Allies & Morrison, John McAslan, Tony Fretton, Richard Murphy, The Manser Practice and Design Engine had failed in bids for the work.

The Foreign Office said it was focused on value for money for UK taxpayers and abiding by EU procurement law by running an open competition.

US law meant UK firms bidding for work on the American embassy in London had to partner with US firms.
