  • Project Overview

    The Queen Mary arrived in Long Beach in 1967 and has been a hotel since 1972. Ship operator Urban Commons has big plans for the iconic Long Beach attraction. They hired us to support the planning of Queen Mary Island, their visions for a modern, $250 million entertainment complex with the Queen Mary as its anchor. The 45-acre development will include retail, an amphitheater, restaurants, nightlife and a hotel. P2S completed a compressive utility, energy, and infrastructure assessment of the landside property next to the former transatlantic luxury liner.

  • Solution

    This project’s objective was to understand the current utility infrastructure and its ability to support the redevelopment plans. We evaluated the utilities within the development boundaries which included: a boiler plant and steam system; a central plant and chilled water system; domestic water, electrical, natural gas, sanitary sewer, storm water, and telecommunication systems. P2S also developed a model based on current infrastructure and energy load profiles, which we used to estimate future loads. Urban Commons used the data we generated from this model as a foundation for their future redevelopment plans for Queen Mary Island.
