The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, along with our suppliers, continue to work hard to deliver the important project of restoring our prestigious Residence in Washington DC, to a high standard, as soon as we can.

Our ambition is to complete the refurbishment work in June 2023. It is important that we ensure that the works carried out are of a high standard, and are sympathetic to Sir Edwin Lutyens' 1928 design.
