Location and compound evaluation for US embassies

In the course of several years of repeated commission, Bates has been hired together with DTZ to execute a number of evaluations of US embassies compounds as well as evaluations of proposed new locations in Belgrade, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia and Zagreb. The appraisals have often covered both property and technical aspects, and included property market surveys. For Sarajevo and Sofia we have made extensive reports consisting of detailed property market surveys of both cities and the description of planning and development processes. We have also been commissioned to search for new sites, thus the reports included the description of proposed sites. One of these sites in Sofia was subsequently acquired and a new embassy building was constructed on it.
