Hinman’s long relationship with the Department of State means we understand their unique requirements. We are comfortable working on overseas projects because we know how to adapt to foreign standards and materials.

Hinman’s relationship with the U.S. Department of State began when Eve Hinman helped author the blast mitigation portion of the Structural Engineering Guidelines for New Office Buildings in December of 1989. Since then, Hinman has been instrumental in the blast design and risk assessment of many high-risk overseas facilities, including embassy compounds, consulate buildings, and marine security guard quarters. 

Our portfolio of U.S. Department of State projects includes: blast design for the largest U.S. embassy complex built on foreign soil, renovation and upgrade design for historically significant and complex facilities, physical and technical security upgrade designs of innovative anti-ram barriers, and owner representative design reviews of other A/E team’s project work. 

Overall, Hinman employees have worked on over 65 U.S. embassy and consulate projects.

Through overseas site visits and close collaboration with local design teams, we have become familiar with building types and standards around the globe. We have interfaced with local A/E firms as well as foreign design firms.
