About the Project
San Ysidro Land Port of Entry Renovation and Expansion Phase 2 is a design-build project which is being designed and built in one of the most complex environments in the United States, adding 126,000 SF of administrative and office space to the busiest land port of entry in the world. This project revolves around designing and building temporary accommodations for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection prior to undergoing any major demolition and construction activities sequencing four major parts of the project over a three-year period.
Collaboration is key, as all stakeholders need to be engaged and proactive in finding solutions. The sequencing of events for safety, security, and productivity is crucial. Included in the project are temporary facilities, demolition, new construction, and site improvements. The project is expected to achieve LEED Gold; however, the team is attempting a Platinum Certification through the use of innovative solutions with the site and the selection of materials.
