Anticipated Procurement Requirements
The San Luis I Land Port of Entry (LPOE) is located on 12.1 acres of land at the intersection of Highway 95 and the International Border with Mexico in San Luis, Arizona. The facility was originally constructed in 1984 as a multimodal commercial and non-commercial port; however, in 2010 the commercial operations were shifted to the new San Luis II LPOE located approximately eight miles to the east. Currently San Luis I is the second busiest non-commercial land port of entry in Arizona and processes more than 3 million POVs and 2.5 million pedestrians each year. These numbers are expected to continue to steadily rise in the coming years. Given the facility’s age, many of the structures and building systems are nearing or past their operational life and do not comply with the GSA P100 Facilities Standards or the U.S. Custom & Border Protection’s (CBP) Design Guide. The outdated facility can no longer effectively support nor enforce the missions of CBP due to increasing traffic demands and declining structural quality. To address this, an expansion and modernization project is currently being developed by the GSA. The potential project will involve both new construction and renovation of existing facilities, and includes but is not limited to the following primary scope of work elements:

  • Relocated and expanded Northbound Lanes and associated Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary inspection facilities and Headhouse Building.
  • Southbound Lanes and associated Processing Building and Canopies.
  • Seizure Vault and Impound Lot.
  • Family/UAC Holding building.
  • Utility Yard including Water Treatment Plant and Emergency Generator.
  • Main Building.
  • Expanded Pedestrian Processing.
  • Kennels.
  • Public Facing Building.
  • Parking.
  • Site development and infrastructure.
  • Demolition of existing facilities except for the new North Annex.

The construction management scope of work will include all the required management, supervision, labor, equipment and materials required to assist the GSA in successfully managing the potential construction project. The primary scope of work items include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Design Review
  • Cost Estimating
  • Project Management
  • Construction Administration
  • Construction Observation
  • Project Commissioning
  • Project Closeout

The current acquisition schedule anticipates a contract award in the second quarter of 2021; however, that is subject to change should the GSA deem necessary.
