PF225 and VF300 Fence Alignment and Requirements

Location: Fort Worth, TX

Michael Baker International provided all aspects of design and program management to the Engineering, Construction, and Support Office (ECSO) and Fort Worth District supporting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) construction at a wide variety of sites in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California along the U.S. - Mexico border. This highly visible initiative placed pressure on Fort Worth District to rapidly plan and execute three separate initiatives: the planning, design, and construction of 225 miles of border fence (PF 225), 300 miles of vehicle fence (VF 300), and 70 miles of expedited military construction of anti-personal barrier (P70) at various locations in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Together, the initiatives represented the largest single CBP tactical infrastructure project in U.S. history, and was honored in 2011 with the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) award for Best Program Management/Program Phase Infrastructure project.
