San Ysidro Land Port of Entry – Phase 2

About the Project

The $156 million, design-build, San Ysidro Land Port of Entry Phase-2 project was designed and constructed to be the first government-owned 24-hour/365-day facility to achieve LEED Platinum, NetZero Energy, and NetZero Water Certifications. The overhauled 39-acre port of entry features heightened standards in efficiency, security, aesthetics and sustainability. The LPOE Phase-2 project included the preservation of the original 24,000 SF Historic Customs House built in 1932 and a complete reconstruction of the Port’s 102,000 SF northbound pedestrian processing building, the pedestrian and bus-inspection facilities, which included inspection booths for 18 northbound pedestrian processing lanes, and four northbound bus-processing lanes.


Due to the importance of this facility, both national security and cross-border regional economies, it was mandatory to ensure the Port remained active at all times during construction.


This design-build project delivery was in collaboration with design partner, Stantec.
