Project Overview

With the completion of a $154 million dollar expansion project, the Aria convention center will offer more than 500,000 square feet of technologically advanced, flexible meeting space. Divided amongst four stories, features will include indoor open-air space and a glass-enclosed venue with views of The Park and Las Vegas Arena.

The expansion will require building connections between new steel and existing steel within a tight space, making worksite safety a challenge for the Schuff Steel team. Steel erection of 12 large trusses will need to be scheduled for delivery in a “just in time” environment while accommodating a limited entrance and exit way space making it essential for efficient off-loading and erection.

The project is slated for completion in February 2018, and will be built to LEED Gold standards.
