Last week, PPM kicked off an exciting new project for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We have been hired to measure and draw the As-Built floor plans of over 600,000 SF of office space currently leased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The project is scheduled to last until November of this year, and includes surveys of over 70 ICE locations throughout the United States. In addition to measuring and drawing the floor plans, we will be calculating the square footage of each area using the BOMA standard.
Earlier this year, we surveyed a previous phase of ICE locations, sharing the contract with 2 other As-Built firms. For the current phase of work (Phase 2) we have been selected as the sole As-Built survey contractor by the lead contractor for the project, Deloitte. We are very proud to have won this high profile project!
This project represents a new opportunity for PPM, and we are eager to take on the unique challenges that it presents. First, of course, is the labor and logistical challenges presented by such a large and geographically spread out group of office surveys. Then, there is the added challenge of paperwork, tracking, and reporting required when contracting with the U.S. Government. Finally, since these are high security locations, all PPM staff have to pass a thorough government security clearance process.
We look forward to doing our best work for this very important client!
