GSA awards one of first contracts on port-of-entry building planned for Limestone

The U.S. General Services Administration has awarded a contract for architectural and engineering services for the Land Port of Entry Project at Limestone. 

Funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, GSA awarded the $644,011 contract to AECOM to provide pre-design services. 

AECOM, a global company headquartered in Dallas, is an infrastructure consulting firm with teams of planners, designers, engineers and construction managers. In 2021, it had professional services revenue of $13.1 billion and 50,000 employees worldwide.

GSA’s goals for the Limestone port include providing a long-lasting and durable port which is sustainable and climate-resilient, with low maintenance and operating costs. 

The project will assist the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-Customs and Border Protection carry out its mission at the international border crossing between Limestone and Grand Falls, New Brunswick, Canada.

The project will provide new construction to supplement the existing port with a new state-of-the-art and expanded facility. Upgrades will include the latest technologies and equipment to facilitate enhanced traffic management and inspection. 

This project will improve economic, cultural and familial connections. The people who live along the border depend on this deep, cross-border community engagement, often crossing through the ports daily for jobs and mutual aid.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes a total of $3.4 billion for GSA to build and modernize land ports of entry on the country’s northern and southern borders. The investments will improve commerce and trade, create good-paying construction jobs, and incorporate new and innovative sustainability features.

GSA provides centralized procurement and shared services for the federal government, managing a nationwide real estate portfolio of nearly 370 million rentable square feet, overseeing about $87 billion in products and services via federal contracts, and delivering technology services that serve millions of people across dozens of federal agencies.
