U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement

Posted on - August 4, 2015

Fisher Architecture was tasked with designing a new U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Office at the Northgate Business Park, which would require the merging of two separate locations into one, in order to house both the detention center and administrative office space into one building.  The initial scope of services was to create a program analysis of what was to be required for each department, the multiple sector’s that would be merging administrative areas and the space requirements for each.  Once this matrix was complete our team created the initial design development drawings to illustrate the feasibility of the program within the proposed space limitations.  Our team had to maintain awareness for the existing exterior circulation patterns and restrictions due to existing site limitations.  Given the task to provide a Sally-Port that would take into account 16 passenger vans, along with large 46 foot coach busses, our team was able to devise a secure means of detainee transfer and processing that met all regulations and requirements set forth by the Department of Homeland Security.
