Security Solutions NW honored for Peace Arch work

The Bellingham Business Journal

Security Solutions NW of Bellingham recently was honored for its work on the new Peace Arch Port of Entry in Blaine, the largest project in the company’s 106-year history.

Security Solutions NW earned the outstanding achievement award from general contractor JE Dunn Construction Co. and the U.S. General Services Administration for performing with an exceptional level of accuracy while adhering to project timelines.

“We’re honored to have been selected for such an integral part of this project, especially since security requirements for border crossings have risen significantly since 9-11,” Jamie Vos, general manager of Security Solutions NW, said in a news release. “Now that we’ve proven we’re capable of handling such high-level projects, this will open doors for us to work on other high-profile and complex projects.”

Security Solutions NW provided design, installation and programming services for the building, primary inspection lanes and secondary inspection lanes at the Peace Arch Port of Entry, which is the third-busiest border crossing along the northern border of the United States.

The company was responsible for integrating hundreds of devices, including cameras, audio recording equipment, intrusion detection systems and access proximity card systems. Security Solutions NW also installed more than 20 miles of cabling at the site as part of its year-long work, which totaled more than $600,000.
