Allies and Morrison gets a second chance in Nigeria with high commission comp

  • Comment
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has announced the final shortlist in the high-profile competition to design the new British High Commission office in the Nigerian capital, Abuja.

Among the finalists is fast-growing practice Allies and Morrison which narrowly missed out on the African Institute of Science and Technology - also in Abuja - project last year (Fuksas wins African science institute competition).

Jordan and Bateman, the Manser Practice, John McAslan and RTKL make up the rest of the five-strong shortlist.

The FCO wants to build a £25 million complex to include a 5,000m2 administrative block. Architects are also expected to come up with proposals for 10 new staff houses and the 'associated security works'.

The high commission which, among other things, offers consular service to British citizens and helps out with visas and passports, hopes to move into the new building by 2011, and the five finalists are expected to be interviewed in mid-May.
