The US Embassy in Rome has required continuous, meticulous renovations and upgrades to preserve the character of the compound – whose buildings were among the first to be listed on the Secretary of State’s Register of Culturally Significant Properties – while ensuring the safety and security of citizens abroad.
Architectural restoration, full electrical and mechanical systems upgrades, and a complete perimeter security upgrade has enhanced safety, functionality, and accessibility. Thorough studies guided the sensitive insertion of new building MEP, security, and telecommunications systems. New security features and facilities are concealed within existing structures, behind existing construction, or designed to complement their surroundings.
