Supporting the mission of the Kazakhstan Border Guard Service and Ministry of Internal Affairs, CH2M's service delivery addresses public health and national security threats posed by drug trafficking through:
- Design of passport control buildings to support customs and immigrations inspections, and provide administrative space for border guard personnel in Kyzylzhar, Kazakhstan.
- Design of a living/administration facility to support border guard personnel at border guard stations in Merke and Akshimirau, Kazakhstan.
- Design of quarantine kennel facilities to support working drug detection dogs in Kararoy and Astana; and a Canine Service Center and administrative facility in Kyzylorda.
"These new facilities will directly impact people's lives in a positive way--from helping combat the flow of drugs that threaten citizen wellbeing, to enabling a better immigration experience for those seeking immigration to Kazakhstan," stated Frank Smith, Project Manager and CH2M Director of Military Installation Planning."
In line with the client mission, CH2M will incorporate sustainable and environmentally responsible elements into the efficient and cost effective designs of the infrastructure, while executing within Kazakhstan's design regulations and construction standards.
"Our designs will provide facilities that not only facilitate the important mission of the Border Guard Service and Ministry of Internal Affairs but are sustainable as well," states Matthew Sutton, President of CH2M's Environment and Nuclear business. "We are proud to have a role serving the U.S. Government and Republic of Kazakhstan partnership."

We have deployed more than 1,000 personnel and resources globally for this effort, including in Afghanistan, Greece, Haiti, Iraq, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Oman, Philippines, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.
