Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
In 2011, FD Stonewater was awarded the development rights to this Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in McAllen, TX. The facility was delivered in April 2012 and serves as the new long-term home for the U.S. DHS Investigations Office. An existing 20,000-SF warehouse was extensively reconstructed to suit the strict standards of the U.S. Government. The building was expanded by 4,000 SF, and now totals 24,063 SF. Parking was expanded and now includes 77 employee spaces, 6 covered spaces, 25 visitor spaces, 1 loading dock and a sally port. The tenant improvements consist of specialized space supporting the mission of ICE. The building and expansion consists of tilt-wall construction with a structural steel frame. The exterior glazing is blast resistant per ICE requirements and the completed project has new HVAC and electrical systems throughout. The development features a sustainable and energy efficient design, and achieved LEED-CI Silver certification.
