Rivals sought for Moscow mission

The Foreign Office is hunting for specialists in historic buildings for a sensitive refurbishment of the British Ambassador's residence in Moscow.
The £5.7 million deal is to refurbish the residence on Sofiskaya Naberzhnaya, opposite the Kremlin. The mansion - originally built by a sugar baron in 1891 - became the British Embassy in 1931 until a new embassy was completed in 2000.

The Official Journal notice advertising the deal states that 'the contract will be subject to stringent security requirements'.

Construction is expected to begin in April next year.
