Securing a busy international port.

The Port of Jacksonville has an airport and seaport with both cruise ship and cargo processing responsibilities. Located on the St. Johns River, the international seaport is the largest container port in Florida and the 14th largest in the U.S. As a busy international trade hub, Port of Jacksonville is a first line of defense where Customs & Border Patrol (CBP) enforces the import and export laws and regulations of the U.S. federal government and conducts admissibility activities. The port personnel that keep the bustling hub running are the face at the border for cargo and visitors entering the United States.

Because of its integral role in monitoring and enforcing customs regulations, the Port of Jacksonville was an ideal location for a new facility that would co-locate two federal agencies in one space. PRIME AE’s team were part of the General Capital team who was selected by GSA to build the new facility, Area Port of Jacksonville Florida. It serves as the base of operations for the United States Coast Guard and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The site was designed to achieve a LEED Silver designation and meet GSA’s stringent security requirements. The project includes an Emergency Management Center with generator buildings and K-rated security fencing and gate.

PRIME AE’s work on the project contributed to a critical facility at the busy port along with an effective home base for the Coast Guard and CBP to carry out their missions in Jacksonville.
