San Ysidro Land Port of Entry, Phase II

Coffman Engineers provided structural engineering services for the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry, Phase ll development. This design-build delivery project was part of a three-phase modernization and expansion plan to enhance the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s facilities at the busiest Land Port of Entry in the Western Hemisphere.

Phase ll included the demolition of the current administration building and construction of a new Pedestrian Building; renovations to the existing Historic Customs House (constructed in the 1930s); and extensive renovations to the courtyard connecting the Pedestrian Building to the Historic Customs House, including new hardscape, retaining walls, shade structures, and pedestrian bridges. The Pedestrian Building consists of two separate two- and three-story steel-frame buildings interconnected with clear ETFE roof and walls creating a large air-conditioned clear story. This structure supports administration functions and cross border processing and connects to the existing Head House structure with a multi-floor pedestrian bridge and PV roof enclosure.
