U.S. Customs and Border Protection Border Fence & Remote Video Surveillance System (RVSS)


Location: U.S. Border

Michael Baker International provided all aspects of design and program management, including the development of the Tactical Infrastructure Design Standards and the Facilities and Tactical Infrastructure Tracking Tool to the Engineering, Construction, and Support Office (ECSO) of the USACE Fort Worth District. The Fort Worth District supports the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Customs and Border Protection (CBP) construction at a wide range of sites in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Michael Baker performed under a compressed schedule for 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-personnel barrier (P70) at various locations in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

The team managed engineering, surveys, geotechnical investigations, specifications, and cost estimates. In addition, the Task Order Managers worked hand in hand with their client counterparts and contracting personnel to execute multiple requests for proposals (RFP). The team also is developing Border Patrol Station master plans and has developed the station design standards for all Border Patrol facilities, including all RVSS towers.
