Project Overview

The Cosmopolitan Resort is a 6.96 million square foot megaresort on the Las Vegas strip utilizing over 50,000 tons of structural steel.

During the early stages of the project, Schuff Steel was enlisted to provide preconstruction services that included ongoing and continuous cost, design and constructability analysis throughout the design development.

With scheduling demands and budget challenges, Schuff Steel employed innovative solutions to ensure the erection schedule remained efficient. We decided to use steel plate shear walls in lieu of standard concrete walls. This approach allowed us to erect the steel plates alongside the columns without stopping to wait for concrete.
