NORWALK, CONN. — EMCOR Group Inc. announced that its University Mechanical & Engineering Contractors subsidiary in California has been awarded a contract for the installation of HVAC, mechanical, and plumbing systems at the General Services Administration’s (GSA) San Ysidro Land Point of Entry, the busiest land port in the world, located in San Diego, Calif.

University Mechanical & Engineering Contractors (UMEC) will be responsible for the construction of the San Ysidro Land Point of Entry’s new head house building, including the central plant equipped with a rainwater collection system and solar hot water system. UMEC will also be responsible for the installation of the space conditioning systems and garage ventilation for a new narcotics building. UMEC’s scope of work will also include construction of the primary and secondary northbound canopies, as well as associated mechanical site work. Off site, UMEC will prefabricate 46 primary booths with state-of-the-art HVAC and ventilation systems, as well as provide extensive underground plumbing and hydronic systems for future expansion phases of the land port.

The San Ysidro Land Point of Entry currently processes an average of 50,000 northbound vehicles and 25,000 northbound pedestrians per day. The existing, outdated 30-year-old facility, of which UMEC’s contract is an integral part, is being updated in order to increase the capacity of the port, helping to address current traffic volumes and increased regional growth.

“UMEC is delighted to have been selected to perform a significant role in completing this important project at the San Ysidro Land Point of Entry,” stated Steve Shirley, president and CEO of UMEC. “We take great pride in our full range of mechanical services and expert capabilities, enabling us to provide the comprehensive requirements necessary to meet the exacting standards and rigid specifications for this key project.”
