United Pacific Headquarters

United Pacific, through its fuel and retail convenience locations, has established itself as one of the largest, independent owners, suppliers, and operators of gas stations and convenience stores throughout the western United States. United Pacific offers motor fuel products under the 76, Conoco, Shell, and United Oil flags, and convenience-store items through the We Got It! Food Mart, My Goods Market, and Circle K brands. The company’s move from Gardena to Long Beach’s Douglas Business Park was highly anticipated and employee-driven, as they sought for a space to promote collaboration, drive productivity, and foster employee retention and dedication. Oltmans Construction Co. was awarded the project in July 2016 and completed the project in ten months. The new corporate headquarters is a 40,376 s.f., two-story, build-to-suit, concrete tilt-up building on a 115,455-s.f. site at the corner of Worsham Avenue and Cover Street in Long Beach, California, right by the Long Beach Airport. United Pacific’s culture and history are interwoven throughout the space, including the showcase of a Rocket C-Store, a fully-stocked, life-size mockup of United Pacific’s owned and operated gas station convenience stores. Another nod to their gas stations includes a classic 1953 Chevy Bel Air Convertible that has been repurposed into a reception desk and parked in front of two gas pumps in the lobby that opens up to the second floor. Other considerations to promote employee wellness, openness, and engagement include sound masking technologies; natural light; large, open work spaces; ample and appropriately sized meeting spaces; a fitness center; upstairs game area; community kitchen; and outdoor entertainment area. The building was also designed and awarded LEED Certification.
