Border Patrol Station | Brownsville, Texas
Client: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District
Huitt-Zollars conducted a design charrette for a new Brownsville Border Patrol station and developed design plans for a prototypical station. For the second phase of the project, Huitt-Zollars developed a design/build RFP for the Brownsville Station. The program developed for the station combined space for agents and their administrative support, locker and exercise space, an armory, muster and training space, public interaction, and interim detention. Site issues included a firearm qualification range, vehicle fueling, a secure perimeter with controlled access, separation of approach for agents and the public, and segregated parking for the public, employees, government vehicles, and impounded vehicles.
