Construction is moving right along for the $375 million Caesars Forum conference center, which is located on the Las Vegas Strip. According to reports, the first steel truss was set in place for the 550,000-square-foot facility earlier this week.

The Project

Under developer Caesars Entertainment Corporation and general contractor Penta Building Group, the facility is slated to boast two of the largest pillarless ballrooms in the world as well as what’s being billed as the first 100,0000-square-foot outdoor meeting and event space in Las Vegas.

Construction is moving right along for the $375 million Caesars Forum conference center, which is located on the Las Vegas Strip. According to reports, the first steel truss was set in place for the 550,000-square-foot facility earlier this week.

When ground broke in July, officials said that the project would create 1,000 local construction jobs and more than 450 permanent jobs upon opening in 2020. The project is also aiming for a LEED silver rating.

The project will reportedly use more than one mile of trusses, 9,500 tons of steel, 2,000 tons of rebar, 30,000 cubic yards of concrete footings, 2,200 wall panels, 650 prefab exterior panels and 2 miles of airwalls.

The conference center is one of a handful of projects that are taking shape around the massive expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center and renovations to the existing hall. That project altogether has an estimated price tag of $1.4 billion.

Bigger Picture

Contracts and approvals for the convention center were just awarded this past November, and included the Las Vegas Convention Center District Committee unanimously recommending the approval of a $13.5 million contract for a builder representative to oversee the final phase of work surrounding the new convention center.

The conference center is one of a handful of projects that are taking shape around the massive expansion of the Las Vegas Convention Center and renovations to the existing hall. That project altogether has an estimated price tag of $1.4 billion.

That builder rep contract was given to Cordell Corp., the owner of which, Terry Miller, had been serving as the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority representative on the expansion portion of the project.

The joint venture of Turner Construction and Martin-Harris Construction signed a $758.1 million construction-manager-at-risk contract last fall. (With TVS Design, along with TSK Architects, Simpson Coulter Studio, Carpenter Sellers Sel Gatto Architects and KME Architects on board for design.)

The JV has said that it is hiring subcontractors to meet requirements of Senate Bill 1, which designates 25 percent of the work to Small Business Enterprise-qualified subcontractors. It is also aiming to meet a self-imposed goal of hiring 14 percent minority-owned businesses and 7 percent women-owned businesses.
