The project consists of developing a high technology industrial park known as Silicon Border Scientific Park. The project site is located approximately 25 km (16 miles) west of downtown Mexicali, south of the U.S.-Mexico border, east of the El Centinela Hill (Mount Signal), and north of the Tijuana-Mexicali Highway (Mexican Federal Highway No. 2).

AECOM performed a preliminary geotechnical investigation for the proposed Silicon Border Scientific Park. The work was commissioned by Silicon Border F/00F578, a Mexican Trust controlled by Lion Mexico Fund, a private equity fund sponsored by Clarion Partners
