This year, Cromwell celebrates 50 years of international work. Our first overseas project was the U.S. Consul General’s Residence and Staff Housing in Madras and New Delhi, India. Cromwell worked closely with Senator J. William Fulbright and the U.S. State Department to secure this groundbreaking contract. The design utilized indigenous masonry and tile, while its thick roof provided a “flywheel” effect by absorbing heat slowly during the intense midday heat and releasing during the cool night.
Since that first project in 1965, Cromwell has worked on more than 60 projects in 14 foreign countries.
