Architectural rendering of a new U.S. port of entry designed by Perkins&Will architects.

Calexico West Land Port of Entry

Calexico, California

The Calexico Port of Entry project unites architecture, landscape architecture, and infrastructure, and represents a confluence of environmental, cultural, and civic pride. There are three primary structures: a building for pedestrian entries, one for central administration, and the vehicular secondary/head house building.

Through a competitive process, the GSA selected our firm to reconfigure and expand the existing Land Port of Entry in Calexico, California. Central to this was designing a complete replacement facility.

The project safely and efficiently processes pedestrians and vehicles that currently cross the border each day, and it will accommodate increased traffic flows well into the future. The federal employees who work at the port have a safe and productive work environment that upholds the principles of U.S. governmental buildings: dignity, enterprise, vigor, and stability.

The GSA selected us to design a complete replacement facility to reconfigure and expand the existing Land Port of Entry in Calexico, California. The project involves the creation of new pedestrian and passenger vehicle inspection facilities.

The project is being constructed in two phases. Phase 1 consisted of northbound and southbound passenger vehicle inspection lanes and a new operations building. This phase is complete.

Phase 2 has been broken into two sub-phases; 2A and 2B. Phase 2A, currently under construction, includes a new administrative building and expansion of the inspection facilities. Phase 2B, planned as a later addition, will include the construction of a new pedestrian inspection facility.

Our services include complete Architecture, Interiors, and Graphics design. Phases include Concept Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Bid/Negotiation, and Construction Administration.
