Outbound Border Crossing Renovations

27 Locations in Southwestern U.S.

Under a design-build General Services Administration (GSA) ID/IQ MATOC construction contract, Arrowhead serves as a dedicated construction phase team member. Under this competitive fixed unit-rate Task Order, Arrowhead participated as a fully-integrated general contractor to perform comprehensive security upgrades at 27 Land Ports of Entry (LPoE) operated by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) along the southern perimeter of the United States.

Working closely with the CBP, GSA, and design partner Leidos, Arrowhead performed $9.2M in construction-phase services at 27 LPoE from San Diego, California to Brownsville, Texas. The scope of work encompassed a diverse range of renovations including: traffic-calming improvements, force protection upgrades of existing facilities; CCTV, roadway expansions; work zone canopies; vehicle barriers; and, traditional construction/renovation. As a requirement of the contract, all LPoE facilities remained operational during construction.

Accordingly, this required extensive coordination with multiple stakeholders in multiple locations. Additionally, because the project often required installing the equipment on property with multiple owners, close coordination with CBP and GSA was critical to ensure access agreements were in place with local city, county, state and tribal officials.
