Construction Update at the Canadian POE at Gordie Howe

Exciting progress is underway at the site of the new Gordie Howe International border crossing in Windsor, Ontario – the Canadian Port of Entry (POE) has recently past the halfway point of construction! 

This is a vast and highly complex project, with ten buildings under construction at this point in time. Among these ten structures currently underway throughout the POE, it can be seen that:

  • The Energy Centre and Maintenance Building being the most advanced, with its exterior precast panels including an art wall, near completion.
  • The Main Building’s structural framing is near completion, the exterior precast panels are being erected while the interior slabs are being poured.
  • The swooping curves of the PIL canopy is taking shape, with its structural framing almost complete and roof deck installed halfway.  
  • Other buildings, for example the Client Processing Centre, The Secondary and Tertiary Inspections Building, and Toll Building, are also well underway.
