As part of the design-build team with a construction firm, Huitt-Zollars prepared full design drawings and specifications for five Land Ports of Entry (LPOE) along the U.S./Canadian border. Huitt-Zollars provided complete design for civil engineering, architecture, structural engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, plumbing, fire protection, communications, data, and security. The LPOE’s act not only as a welcoming entrance for visitors into the country but also as high security technical checkpoint for potential harmful threats to the U.S. Each facility has a typical staff on duty of two officers. The buildings are single-story, approximately 4,500 SF.
