A contractor has been recommended for the final phase of Las Vegas’ $1.4 billion convention center expansion and renovation project.

The joint venture of Martin-Harris Construction and Turner Construction—which was also contracted for the first and second phases of the project—was reportedly recommended by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority committee.

The Project

Renderings for the overhaul were first revealed last April by TVS Design (Atlanta), which took lead on the project, working with TSK Architects, Simpson Coulter Studio, Carpenter Sellers Sel Gatto Architects and KME Architects.

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority

A contractor has been recommended for the final phase of Las Vegas’ $1.4 billion convention center expansion and renovation project.

Early designs showed a broad entry featuring an atrium and food court, as well as a rooftop terrace. The design element that got the most attention was referred to as a “roofline ribbon,” which the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported will serve as a wayfinding system and identify main entrances to the various halls. Designers are also accounting for an outdoor people-mover.

In September, the LVCVA approved a $758.1 million construction-manager-at-risk contract with the Harris-Turner JV for the new hall, which is expected to be completed by Dec. 1, 2020. That contract includes $691 million in construction costs, a $48 million GMP contingency and an $18 million construction management fee.

In addition to the hall, the LVCVA and project manager Terry Miller, of Cordell Corp., agreed to three additional projects at the time that include building landscaping, wall buffers and a canopy over the building’s loading docks, which total $10 million. Reports also note that the LVCVA has agreed to contribute $10 million for hazardous-material remediation at the site.

Two months later, Cordell Corp. was granted a $13.5 million contract as a builder representative.

What Now

Last week Harris-Turner was recommended for the two-year renovation of the four existing exhibition halls. That project is expected to begin in January 2021, just after the new hall is completed.

The JV reportedly listed a fixed fee of $3.5 million for pre-construction services on renovations, according to the Review-Journal. Other finalists for the bid included AECOM Hunt and The Penta Building Group.

Klai Juba Wald and Design Las Vegas have been designated as architects of record for the project.

The authority will reportedly vote on final approval for the contract this week.
