CHICAGO - As part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the U.S. General Services Administration has awarded three contracts for pre-design services for the International Falls Land Port of Entry in Minnesota.
An architect and engineering services contract for $22,160,114 was awarded to Snow Kreilich Architects (SKA), an architectural studio and small business in Minneapolis.
Additionally, GSA awarded a construction management contract for Construction Manager as Advisor (CMa) services to Dallas-based Jacobs Technology Inc. for $5,987,817.
At the end of June 2023, GSA also awarded a $105,000 appraisal service contract to Lake State Realty Services, Inc., a woman-owned small business in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
“Each milestone in the International Falls Land Port of Entry project brings us one step closer to providing a new facility that means a great deal to the community and our federal partners. We couldn’t be more delighted to be leading this effort,” said GSA’s Great Lakes Region Public Buildings Service Commissioner Angel Dizon.
The overall project entails construction of a new facility, replacing the existing obsolete infrastructure. Expanding the site will also allow for enhanced traffic flow and management. Construction is slated to be completed in 2029.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes a total of $3.4 billion for GSA to build and modernize land ports of entry on the country’s northern and southern borders. The investments will improve commerce and trade, create good-paying construction jobs, and incorporate new and innovative sustainability features.
