Recovery Act in the Region

Recovery Act logo

The Pacific Rim was a proud partner in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) through our $586 million of new construction, Land Ports of Entry (LPOE) modernization, major renovation and alteration, and limited scope high-performance green buildings projects. Our major regional construction and modernization projects were:

  • Design and construction of new U.S. Courthouses in Bakersfield, California and Yuma, Arizona;
  • Expansion of the Mariposa LPOE in Nogales, Arizona;
  • Design for the Otay Mesa LPOE in Otay Mesa, California;
  • Installation of photovoltaic solar panels at the San Luis II LPOE in San Luis, Arizona;
  • Construction of the southbound pedestrian crossing at the San Ysidro LPOE in San Ysidro, California;
  • Modernization of the federal building at 50 United Nations Plaza in San Francisco, California; Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Honolulu, Hawaii; and the Federal Building and U.S. Post Office in Hilo, Hawaii.

These and many other projects around the nation stimulated the American economy, put people back to work, and saved jobs. The ARRA projects were solid investments in the future, making federal facilities more sustainable and energy efficient.
