Currently Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) will ultimately occupy the majority of this square footage. The proposed construction spaces will be vacant, however the building will be occupied by other tenants during the work performance period(s). Hazardous material abatement/remediation will be required as part of these renovations.

The CMc shall be a member of the project development team during design, construction and Turnover/Closeout stages.
