Federal Construction Group, Inc. is tasked to do the windows and door restoration. The Tecate Land Port of Entry is located on the east side of the California Highway 188 (Tecate Road) which continues across the border into Baja California, Mexico. The Inspection Station complex in Tecate (40 miles southeast of San Diego) started construction in 1932 and consists of the Main U.S. Inspection Station building and two detached single-family residences. The Main Building is of stucco-clad brick exterior in the style of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, two stories above ground and a basement; it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. In 2005, a prospectus-level reconstruction of the U.S. Inspection Station at Tecate was completed to upgrade and expand the port. The new facility attached to the rear (east wing) of the historic complex inspects vehicular traffic. While, the Main Building has been modified from its original construction and remains as a pedestrian crossing inspection facility. The 2005 project significantly altered the interior layout and details of the building. Hence, the historical integrity of the building rests with the exterior, especially the primary (west facing) facade. A combination of replacement, patching, and painting is needed to stop and repair water infiltration for 25,000 square feet of exterior stucco. In addition, twenty-five windows need to be repaired or replaced along with ten exterior doors. The Building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and these projects shall fully comply with all Historic Preservation Requirements. The Windows and Door Restoration will require review and approval from GSA Historic Preservation Officer. Proposed repair procedures will require review and approval by GSA Historic Preservation.
