International Border Crossings

MMM Group Limited (MMM) is highly skilled in the planning, design, construction administration, inspection, and maintenance of facilities associated with international border crossings. These projects are multidisciplinary in nature, requiring strategic planning; traffic engineering; design of civil, structural, electrical, and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS); and architectural services.

MMM’s breadth of experience and reputation is such that we provide consulting services to most of the international border crossings in Ontario. We have also provided extensive bridge and plaza inspection, design, and construction administration services on both the Canadian and U.S. spans of many of the Ontario / U.S. major bridge crossings. Our staff across Canada possess expertise in the planning and design of international border processing plazas as well as airport trans-border and aviation gateways. We have considerable expertise in working with the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, having assisted in the development of world-leading Hold Baggage Screening system design and testing plans, Explosive Detection System (EDS) integration guidelines, and standard operating procedures and implementation guidelines associated with the implementation of EDS technology into baggage handling systems across Canada.

MMM staff have developed a unique understanding and knowledge of international border crossing issues, such as Canadian and U.S. Customs and Immigration requirements and security issues. Together with state-of-the-art knowledge of ITS applications to enhance processing efficiency at border crossings, we offer expertise and a thorough understanding of the unique challenges associated with international border crossings.
