CH2M HILL Lockwood Greene Designs Port of Long Beach Security Command and Control Center

LONG BEACH, 07 March 2007 — CH2M HILL Lockwood Greene has completed the design of a new Security Command and Control Center for the Port of Long Beach, California. The total installed construction cost is estimated at $15 million. The 25,000-square-foot building will support the Port of Long Beach Security Division, the Port of Los Angeles Police, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol as part of the Department of Homeland Security efforts. The facility is designed to maintain security for the largest port complex in the nation, which handles 30 percent of the United States' imported goods.

CH2M HILL Lockwood Greene's design incorporates environmentally-friendly principles using Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles. At completion, the facility will house around-the-clock security personnel who will monitor the Port's surveillance system, as well as incorporate a 15,000-pound capacity, roof-mounted heliport to support the Security operations. The facility will also support the Port's underwater dive team for patrol and rescue efforts.

CH2M HILL's Long Beach office is leading the efforts on this project. "As a company, we are focused on continuing to provide the Port of Long Beach high value engineering, construction and technical services in concert with its mission of safety and security," said Paul Parunyan, project manager, CH2M HILL.
